[Me, looking forward to another day at work.]
[Clearly he went to the wrong Subway.]
We ride in silence on the subway, absorbed in phones/readers/books/newspapers. And, I gotta tell you, I'm loving this part of my day. Getting a chance to read for 20 minutes in the morning and evening does wonders for me. This is much better than the frothing at the mouth, speed demon I am behind the wheel.
But today, the train is more sluggish than usual, making stops between platforms and making longer stops than normal on the platforms. We grim little hamsters have no choice but to wait, pawing at our phone buttons for the magic pellets that make our lives complete.
After what feels like a rather lengthy wait on a platform, the doors close and we start to move. At this point the conductor says over the speaker, "Do you SEE the train that's DIRECTLY BEHIND ME??" We look up in surprise. Clearly he is not talking to us but still...
So, today I am thankful for the subway train driver who decided not to wait for clearance to get moving again.
