Do you ever wonder if train operators or motormen are messing with the passengers? On purpose?
For example, how many time have you arrived at an express stop on a local train when you can see an express train waiting across the platform. However, the express train manages to close its doors just before the connecting local train you are on stops. How annoying is that?!
You get all excited because it is going to be a nice seamless connection, but nooooo. The train you were connecting to gets away.
I think it’s the train operators messing with us. Maybe the guy driving your train says, “Hey watch this. I’m gonna slow down just enough to miss this connection.”
Or the guy running the express train says, “Quick! Let’s get out of here before they stop.”
