last night on my way home, my train was delayed 30 mins halfway thru the ride. why? because some guy decided he could run across the train tracks while an Amtrak was coming
he did not survive. OOF.
tonight i think the police is out to get me. examples:
+ after more than a year of parking at the train station without ever paying i got a parking ticket for $35 - NOW HOW WILL I CHEAT THE SYSTEM!?! gonna park everywhere else so i can continue to not pay. i personally think it’s BS to charge commuters for parking. you charge me $365 every month to commute to a city 2 hrs away, fuck you.
+ they installed one of those road speed reader thingies on my exit off the highway. that thing has been off since forever and NOW it’s on. too bad its hard to speed on that exit considering its a wicked turn, fuck you highway patrol.
+ they built 3 speed bumps near the school up my road AND a cop was hiding right at the school to catch speeders. i didn’t slow down bc i think at 8:30pm on a summer night i should be allowed to go 35mph if school isn’t in session. fuck you cop, i’ll resume my normal speed.
ok so it’s been a week later that i promised i’d share my commuting rules. but i totally am ready now. this post will most likely only be enjoyed by my good friend jess who is a fellow commuter. both of us have shared similar horror stories and believe in the 5 rules i’ve listed below. also, you’ll probably think we’re bitches for listing these rules, but after you’ve commuted for say three years like me, you’ll understand why. so here they are:
ok there they are the 5 rules (plus 1) that jess and i believe in. these are more like pet peeves, but should be respected anyway.
and yes i complain about everything too much. deal.
im getting physically sick from commuting to/from nyc. i’ve done this gig on and off for about 3 years and i think its taking its toll on me. i’m tired of waking up ass early before all my coworkers to arrive later than them, i’m tired of trains not running often so i’m stuck in the station for 2 hrs waiting to go home, i’m tired of having to cut my nights early so i don’t miss my train home, i’m tired of paying for parking, i’m tired of paying a ridic amount of $ to ride the train, i’m tired of it being ass cold on hte train when its still cold outside, and i’m tired of having to simply commute in general. idk how these other people do it for years on end honestly. i know nyc is expensive to live in but its like you have no life as a commuter, and i can’t have that. i think from now on i’m going to stay with friends for part of my week so i don’t have to travel back and forth so much. i feel myself getting sick like a flu or something because im physically exhausted from this shit. can’t someone just like let me sublet their apartment here in nyc? something’s gotta give.
