Sometimes I really hate the MTA. Sure it can take you anywhere in the 4 boroughs for $2 but when you have to ride it on a daily basis, you develop this love/hate relationship. Sometimes I think, "wow, I live in one of the best cities in the world and I could get anywhere I want to go at any time of the day." That's on good days when your subway ride is smooth and groovin'. Of course I was not as fortunate as Tammy to have witnessed a domestic dispute and an act of fellatio all in the time frame of 24 hours. I don't get that much excitement aside from the occasion smelly ass bum begging for money.
I don't understand the MTA. Last week, before leaving for work, Good Day New York said that the N line was running on the D line because of some problem or another. I was really lucky to have known that because do you think the MTA told the riders on the subway? Nope! I got to 59th St and there were a ton of people on the platform waiting for the N train. I didn't get off because I knew. I happened to catch the D when I got to 36th Street and wouldn't you know, when I'm on the bridge, I see the N train on the other track practically empty! It probably came right after the D I got on. Then today, I'm on the N and we're pulling into 36st. The conductor says that due to a train stuck at Pacific street, they will be delayed and if we could, to use the R train coming in on the local track. So, me and a bunch of people go over to the R. Wouldn't you know it but as soon as we got on the R, the freakin' N train doors start closing!! WTF?
sigh...ya gotta love this city tho!
