I normally love being able to ride the subway to work. If I had to drive my vehicle, I would easily spend an hour in traffic during the morning. The afternoon would probably be much worse, because everyone is leaving the city. The subway only takes 23 minutes, and I only spend $5 each day. I would spend more money on gas and tolls, if I was taking my own vehicle. There is also a great deal of wear-and-tear that generally happens from driving our vehicles. If I was sitting in gridlock traffic everyday for an hour each way, it would take a toll on my new car. The subway is a genius invention, and I love seeing the commuter train arrive each morning. Until yesterday, I’ve never had anything bad to say about the subway. I spent all 23 minutes of my morning ride without heat. I can understand that the schedules are very busy in the morning, so it was reasonable to wait until after the morning commute to fix the heating problem. When I rode the subway later that evening, I anticipated the heating problem to be restored. Instead, the subway had a sign with a frown, a brief apology, and an explanation that the train still did not have any heat. They anticipated the heating problem to be fixed by the next morning. It was only 17 degrees outside, and it didn’t feel much warmer on the train. By the time I arrived to my condo, I was ready for a hot shower and some warm pajamas. Luckily, the heating problem was fixed, when I went to work this morning. I was contemplating getting the car out of the garage.
