I'm not sure if I should share this, because it has a little too much to do with me and not enough to do with my wonderful passengers. It's probably not too interesting to read, but I'll put it up for data reasons. It's a record of everything said into the mic, for one trip (last week, Tuesday, I believe). A line break indicates a pause- a red light, a movement to the next stop, people getting on, etc. Inbound trips have more "here we go"s and "hang on tight"s, simply because I only say those or variations of those when people are walking in the aisles; this outbound trip is mostly dropoffs. I don't include all the stuff I don't say in mic- conversations, etc. It was a relatively quiet evening on the 358, all things considered. I think I only used the lift two or three times. We finished early; this trip took just under an hour.
