The voice in the ceiling tells me that downtown 2 trains are “running slowly” on the express track due to “an earlier incident.” So express isn’t really that express-like. As a matter of fact, other riders tell me that the 1 train is actually the faster option.
When they announce things like “earlier incidents,” don’t you wish they would just come right out and say what the hell is up? Go ahead. Be blunt about it. Just say that some bum caused a power failure by pissing on the third rail.
The honesty would be a welcome change of pace.
Also, if it is because of a suspect package laying around, just tell us. I think we all deserve to know.
That’s my gripe of the day. Glad I’m not on the 2 ! Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
