Ode to the train

Today as I was riding the subway to work (after waiting 20 minutes for a train that's supposed to come every 15 and must've been early the first time anyway because I got there on time), I was thinking that I'm kinda getting used to riding the train. Although it reminds me a lot of catching the bus in middle school, cause you gotta hurry up and get there on time only to see it riding away when you get there. But at least there's another one coming later, I suppose. Anyway, so yeah, I'm kinda getting used to it. Although I hate getting off the train once I get into the city, because there are a million people waiting to get on. Which is fine. But these million people feel the need to crowd the doors of the train to get on, and not allow the people who are actually on the train to get off it. Trust me, there will be more chairs and more space for YOU if you let ME get off the train. Hmph.

Yeah, the couple of time we've been to NY, we noticed the mass trying to squeeze their way on before we could get off. I learned that you have to be aggressive. It's like playing football trying to get out. You've got the ball and the other team is rushing you!
