obsession

 43-year-old Darius McCollum is obsessed with New York City’s public transit system.  

 

From the time he was 15, he had played the role of the helpful staff greeting commuters on their way.  He had taken initiative in clearing thrash from the tracks.  He had driven the buses and the trains. And he had helped put out underground fires.

 

He studiously documents his wealth of knowledge of the transit system.  A dedicated all-rounder, hands-on employee – except that he is not one.

 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is so peeved with McCollum that they got him arrested for the 23rd time now for pretending to be a transit worker.

 

By now, however, the MTA should realize that putting him away doesn’t quench McCallum’s zeal. 

 

Isn’t there a better solution to MTA’s headache, such as offering McCallum employment?  Many other companies would grab up a worker like him.
