TTC Hell

The trip in this morning sucked.

I was planning to get in for 9:30, and stay until 6 p.m.. Because I am going to kung fu tonight, there's no reason for me to leave work before 6; I'll just end up sitting around trying to think of something to do while I wait kung fu to start. Also, staying 30 min late Monday means I can leave 30 min early on Tuesday, when leaving early can make a big difference.

So, I left with an aim to get to work around 9:30. I got to the subway station at 8:30, which is cutting it a bit close, but still ok.

Then the voice comes over the intercom; "we are experiencing a delay at our dundas station with a passenger assistance alarm". Annoying, but should only cost me 5-10 minutes.

Then, a couple minutes later, I realize that there is a train sitting half way out of our station. As in, it started to leave, but then stopped for some reason.

"We are currently experiencing a problem at our Rosedale station with a medical emergency. Emergency personnel have been dispatched, etc, etc."

By the time the problem at Dundas got cleared up, a new problem had arisen at Queen. And things were still a mess at Rosedale.

It was after 9 by the time things got moving and I got to Bloor, where I switch directions, and start heading west instead of south.

It was 10 by the time I got here.

I was heading North this morning, and heard all the same announcements. And saw the crowded platforms. And the stopped trains full of distressed, tired looking people. And thought to myself "damn, for once it's the trains in the OPPOSITE direction than the one I'm heading in. Glad I didn't have to go South this morning!"

Re: Dude.
well, it was annoying.

Not quite so bad as other times where I've had to sit and wait while 5 or 6 trains went by too full to take a single person though.
