It was nice having a rental car while I was away but not nearly as entertaining as my metro (train) rides can be.
This morning a train, a few in front of mine, had broken down so we were enduring a journey of stops and starts and little rests in the tunnels. At one station the driver announced:
“This is the Green Line train trying to get to Branch Avenue; Lord knows I’m trying to get there“.
So, I’ve just completed my second day back commuting and I’ve noticed something disturbing. There is less space on my trains than a month ago!
This could be due to a few things such as:-
– the trains got smaller – incredibly unlikely
– more people found work – not very likely
– people have found a desire to ride public transport in peak times – now that would just be silly
or, in my opinion, people have put on weight in my absence!!
