Holy suitcases batman! Where the hell is everyone going today?
Everywhere I look, there’s people with suitcases trying to get onto the subway. I guess everyone is getting out of dodge for the weekend. Maybe they figured that they would avoid the Memorial Day weekend traffic and just go the next weekend.
I love how women pack massive suitcases that weigh more than they do just to go on a weekend trip. There they stand, helplessly at the bottom of the stairs waiting for guys to come by and help them out.
Here’s a tip: If that’s your game plan, you’d better be cute. If you’re not at least a little attractive, good luck getting someone to stop and help you in the peak of the early morning commute. This is especially true of you’ve got a bag packed with every pair of shoes you own (all 300 pairs) because you never know what you might need to wear in the 2 days you plan to be away from your apartment.
There was a line of women waiting at the elevator at pen station. There were so many, and their bags were so big, that they had to wait and go in shifts.
I saw at least a half a dozen people getting on and off the trains with big rolling bags at EVERY stop this morning. That’s just what I could see from my train car, so I am sure there were plenty more. Hope there’s not something I should know about this weekend!
