GO Train riders arriving at the Mimico station for the 8:54 train to downtown this morning were treated to coffee, juice, muffins and pastry in the parking lot as part of a customer appreciation day.
Problem was the train was 10 minutes late. The irony, shall we say, was delicious.
One GO staffer standing on the platform did his best to deflect beefs from passengers remarking they'd rather have the trains running on time than free eats.
“We just wanted you to have time to enjoy your muffins,” he quipped.
When the train arrived at Union Station 10 minutes late, there was, as usual, no apology or explanation for the delay.
