Hey Asshole! Stop Holding The Doors! – Another Glorious Non-Journey With The MTA

Today I got on the B train at West 4th after waiting a good 20 minutes for it to arrive.I boarded the train and we went two stops downtown. At Grand Street I heard the notorious jarring sound of the train doors attempting to close, but they were stuck."Please stand clear of the closing doors!" [...]

Dear MTA Closing the Doors on a Stroller is Not Okay

Dear MTA,This is probably the worst thing you've ever done. It was at the Atlantic Avenue station during rush hour. Exactly 8:24am on Friday 7/12/13. Copious amounts of folks were exiting the train. Just as the people were done exiting I started to push my stroller (which is enormous) on to the D train. As [...]

All Right MTA No Air Conditioning Was Bad But You Really Did it ThisTime

Dear MTA,I have been on the D train sitting on the Manhattan bridge for exactly 23 minutes. There has been no explanation as to why we're delayed. I have my two children in a double stroller going completely insane on an unmoving train car. This is completely ridiculous.I am now 30 minutes late for work [...]

Dear MTA Please Fix the Air Conditioning

Dear MTA,Today it was 100 degrees outside. I was so excited to get on the D train and potentially get a seat. I had my two children with me in the double stroller. As the doors opened, I got ready to embrace the air conditioned subway car. I was excited, even though it was rush [...]

A Ride to Discrimination

I have to meet a friend in Manhattan today, which means I have to take the subway. My subway ride from Brooklyn to most points of interest in Manhattan ranges from a 1/2 hour to one hour trip. Objectively this doesn't sound too bad, but I am dreading it.I have bitched and complained about the [...]
