trains, planes and automobiles

i stepped onto the train today at 42nd street, sat down, looked up, and realized there was puke all over the floor across from me. only after i noticed it did i realize how terrible it smelled and how everyone else in the train car had noticed it already and started to migrate to the other side of the train car. it was gross, so i, too, got up and moved to the other side of the train car. i gave up my completely empty bench to sit with some random guy in a two seater because the smell was so bad and the puke so horrific looking. then i got off at 14th street and went on my merry way.

then on my way home, they started the construction early, so i waited for about 20 minutes for the local train to show up at 14th street and then it took about another half hour to go between 14th and 72nd, a ride that would normally take 5 minutes if i had gotten a local train. it was unfortunate. what was worse, is that i had to stand the whole time. i hate relying on public transportation.

the moral of these stories: the train is gross and slow... nothing else.

but at least you didn't have to sit in hours and hours of rush hour traffic! That puke kinds sucks though.
