On the corner of 7th Street and 3rd Ave. there are a number of commuter buses that haul people out to the suburbs. Many, many times when I go by this intersection after work, I am treated to this site:
Minnesotan's politely lined up in a single file line patiently waiting for a bus that is not there yet. I could not believe this the first time I saw it. Everywhere else I have lived, people would be milling about until the bus comes, then they would squeeze into the bus once it comes. Here, they wait in an orderly line, not talking to each other, looking straight ahead, and certainly not getting too close to each other.
We are so sadly repressed in this state...
