Wrong number

My friends and I planned a trip to the Gateway recently. Since we live in Riverton and Draper, I thought we should take TRAX.

Imagine my surprise when I called 1-800-BUS-INFO, the number I used to call to get route and travel-time information! It was a sexy lady saying, "Welcome to America's hottest talk line! Ladies, hot guys are waiting to talk to you! Guys, excited ladies want to talk to you, for free! Ladies, press 1, guys press 2!"

Considering the obscene bonuses UTA management gives themselves while cutting back on service, and the recent story about the woman who is suing UTA because of sexual harassment by her boss, this somehow seems sadly fitting.
