Two Bad Evening Commutes in a Row

Yesterday it was the Number 7 train. It took about 30 minutes to get from 111th Street to the Main Street Flushing Station. The culprit was singal problems. Can't the bozos who run the MTA get the signals to work properly 99.9% of the time?

Today it was New Jersey Transit. It seems that every time they raise the fares the service gets worse. I boarded the train at Newark as the conductors said that there was a train stuck between Secaucus and Newark and there would be an indefinite delay. I'll give the conductors credit for making the announcements. At least there was the alternative of taking the PATH trains. The problem is that the PATH is always slower since it makes severak stops.

I heard the most ridiculus panhandlng ploy on the PATH. Some guy is asking for $15.75 to buy a Long Island Rail Road ticket from NYC to West Hampton. There are millionaires that live in the Hamptons. They method of asking money for train fare is the oldest story in the books. These losers are likely using the money to buy illicit drugs.

I think this qualifies for an OY VEY.
