Crazy Commute Today
Here is Murphy's Law for Commuters: If there is a possibility of a train delay, it will happen. Since I am on the late shift today, i didn't have to be at work until 1 PM. At about 11:15 AM I arrived at the Main Street Flushing subway station. As I sat in the car waiting for it to leave, it was announced that the #7 was not running. They suggested we take the Long Island Railroad to Penn Station. That train came at 11:40 and arrived at Penn Station at 12 noon. I caught the New Jersey Transit train and arrived at work on time. This is only the second time in 16 years that I had to take the LIRR to manhattan from Flushing. I didn't have to pay an extra fare. You just never know where and when there will be a problem on mass transit.
