I’m stuck on a train…

I am currently stuck on a train on my way from Boston to NYC to visit my best friend Jackie for the weekend.  The train was supposed to get to NYC at 7- it is now 8:09 and I am still on the train.

A train broke down in front of us, and then 5 trains got backed up behind it.  So we had to stop and wait until the broken down train could be cleared.  Then they announced that they had called a rescue train to come get the disabled train.  Then the next announcement… you are not going to believe this… THE RESCUE TRAIN BROKE DOWN!!!  It was seriously absurd.

Now the rescue train started working again, they finally cleared the first train, the backed-up trains started going again, and we are on the move, finally.  I always think of the train as being so much better than the bus because it doesn’t have to deal with traffic, but that was not the case tonight.

So now we are finally back on the move after being stopped for an hour and a half, and hopefully I will get to NYC soon!!
