Amtrak Humor

Say what you will about the rampant inefficiency and perpetual lateness, the wackiness of the staff make it worthwhile.

"We are extremely sold out today."
"Folks, please remember that your cell phone conversation pleases no one but yourself."
"If you need anything, please feel free to ask us. If you weren't here, we wouldn't be here. If you don't have anything to ask us, then I have no advice for you."

when i rode they always had a "extraordinary oatmeal sweepstakes" where you could enter to win a bowl of oatmeal from the dining car.

Amtrak people have not become any saner while you've been away.
Remember the dining car attendant who tried to say "dining car" as many times as possible in every announcement?
