Taking the @wmata #silverline on its opening day!
“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”
Sara: feminism and more.
3. Nothing fills you with more rage than getting on a crowded subway car and suddenly hearing, “It’s showtime!”
When this happens, I become the WORST version of myself.
I’m not a New Yorker and I’d be so pissed.
I think this kind of rage is common to mass transit-y places.
Example: I’ve twice been on a DC metro train when this one man decided it was his mission to VERY LOUDLY IN THE MORNING sing hymns ON EACH CAR. That’s right, at each station, he gets off the car he was on and moves down to the next one in the train.
It was way too early for that kind of intrusion, and everyone was angry.
hahahahaha they didn’t even put Philadelphia on here
because it would look like sadness.
You might say that I’m not a fan of SEPTA.
To be fair, my issue is mostly that their Regional Rail system is kind of dirty, kind of unreliable, and SUPER expensive (I think similar trips, measured in time, cost something like half as much on the much cleaner DC Metro), but that one time I took the Philadelphia subway wasn’t so great. And actually, the underground rail system is pretty paltry compared to other cities, so I feel like my Regional Rail experience tells me plenty about SEPTA as a whole.
