Words can't express my frustration with the New York City subway right now, in particular the N/W line which has got to be a contender for the worst line in the history of the New York City subway. If there is a worse line than that, I am so sorry for anybody who has to ride it.
I know I should probably go easy on the MTA. Let's face it, they've only had OVER A HUNDRED FUCKING YEARS to perfect the system, not to mention millions in tax payer money, and the fares that you and I pay to ride the shit heap system. I understand that they had to spend a huge amount of money on the marble bathrooms at the MTA corporate headquarters downtown not to mention all the entertaining they have to do. I get it.
But is it so much to ask for a train in the morning. During rush hour. Please, we'd be so grateful if you could just get a train on the platform. And one that leaves on time, and doesn't have to wait for another one to arrive, and could we get the sick fucking passenger off the train and just move on. And while we're doing that, could we fix all the doors so they open and close when they are supposed to and don't just suddenly stop working mid journey. Could we fix the speaker systems so that when the train is going to go express and miss my stop I would hear it from any car, and not just the lucky winner bonus sound system car that I am of course, not in. Could the MTA employees on the platform be armed with Tasar stun guns so that when somebody holds the train up by sticking their foot in the door, like they are the only person that has somewhere to be at a designated time, they are given a gentle tap on the shoulder and left in a pool of their own urine on the platform. In fact can we all be armed with Tasar equipment, so when those bastards that try to get on the train, you know, before everybody has gotten off the trian, try to perform their death defying "Ladies and Gentlemen, look how many people you can fit in a New York City Subway car before people start turning blue from lack of oxygen", we can stun them into submission too. Oooh, I love that idea. Number 7 riders, you know who you are.
Just small changes but I think they would make a big difference.
