Public Transportation Chronicles
By the time I get off work it is considered rush hour on for the CTA (Chicago Transportation Authority). I see school kids, college students, citizens going about their daily lives and workers. I take the train to and from work. So since I get off of work during the evening hours, by time I get on the the platform to wait for the Kimball bound train at the Belmont Brown Line, the train is crowded! So I wait, I wait and wait for the least crowded train. Here is why:
I refuse to squeeze myself on a crowded train. I want to get home and relax just like the next person, but I will wait. I have no problem waiting. I rather wait then to be real life belly to belly with another rider. You are probably wondering why I said “belly to belly with another rider” here is what happened.
