An open letter

Dear NJ Transit,

I thought we discussed this already?? You were going to be on your best behavior and not run late anymore!! Why the hell did it take me over THREE hours to get home last night? Three hours!!

I get home late enough as it is. This was just ridiculous. I usually get home at 8:30 every night. Last night? I didn’t walk in the door til 10:30. It took me over 2 hours to just get from NY Penn station to Newark. That’s only supposed to take 20 minutes!!

I am furious at you NJ Transit. You better man up and start running on time again. I was starving and practically in tears when I walked through that door last night. Does that make you happy?

I’m begging you. Please please never do that to me again.


A very unhappy commuter

LOL "You better man up and start running on time." Or else??? You are going to quit your job? Drive to work? I think that one is a hallow threat. ;-)

Sorry your commute sucks. I could not imagine. I don't really do trains or buses becuase they make me anxious. You just gave me further proof.

Boo mass transit. I come from a place that has no train system whatsoever, so you'd think I'd take it where I could with the DC metro. When it works, it's great. But when it sucks, and it often does, I feel like writing letters just like this one. How hard is it, I mean really, to run a functional, operational, RELIABLE system? It can't be that hard. It just can't. Sigh. Hope things start loking up!

WOW! What happened? That is ridiculous! Was a train stuck or something in the tunnel backing everything up?

Hope today went better!
