Annoying Toronto

Does Toronto have any uniquely annoying traits?

"World class cities build subways, just sayin."

Among the many hair-tugging worthy tidbits of the subways vs. LRT debate in Toronto, the sentiment above — conveyed, as it were, in the most sophisticated manner — was the most personally annoying. This knee-knocking town doesn't need another reason to take a self-consciousness trip, much less one planted by its putative leader. But there it was, on the radio shows, comment threads, and in Toronto Sun columns.

World class cities don't worry about being world class cities. So, please, don't do that. And while we're at it, this other stuff might not be a fantastic idea, either. It's hard to know if what's listed below is unique to Toronto (the shyness on the dance floor has long been a troubled calling card) but it sure is annoying — and that should be enough.

Am I buggin' you? I don't mean to bug ya.
