Four women, members of Boring Inc., have taken it upon themselves to increase customer service on New York City subways. Dressed in matching uniforms complete with heels, pill box hats, and of course, a snack cart, this past Saturday, Kae Burke, Lauren Larken, Anya Sapozhnukova, and Kristine “Kiki” traveled around New York offering help, snacks, and smiles.

… The performance is a response to the MTA’s fair (sic) hikes. It has been more than a month since the fair hike and the MTA has yet to improve their overall service including extended evening hours and additional train routes.

While there’s no question that TTC service would be drastically improved by the addition of food carts, pillbox hats and heels, the place where these ladies could really put their morale-improving skills to use would be Air Canada.  And WestJet.  And pretty well every Canadian airline except Porter—which has already figured out the comfort / convenience / style thing.
