Not only do I relate to all these Green Line struggles, but I even relate to the Missouri post. Thank you for recognizing that our home state is not, in fact, a part of the South (though the closer you get to Branson, you might be fooled). Keep up the good work! This blog has kept me laughing through finals week.
Missourians-turned-Bostonians unite! Always glad to talk to compatriots. Thanks for the feedback and good luck with finals!
So this wasn’t an overheard but this did happen on the fabulous B line the other day coming into Arlington station. Apparently either someone was boarding or exiting the train and they somehow managed to pull the emergency lever. So we were all sitting there confused and the wonderful MBTA conductor came over the loudspeaker saying we had to find it or if not we weren’t going to be able to pull out. Well my boyfriend who is from the midwest and had only been riding the T for a week basically pointed out it was the one in the front by the conductor. Everyone on the train kept looking around and someone even shouted “Oh what do you mean the front?” well long story short the conductor got up and finally pushed it down. I was surprised it even happened, but I guess I shouldn’t be because it was the green line.
Thank you this blog is my life, I live off the green line and to make it worse I work at Fenway... So thank you expect submits from me soon because this blog is flawless
Thanks for the support!! I hope to see my submissions box blowing up soon!
Thanks also to all recent (and legacy!) followers. Remember to keep your ears open…make a point to take out those earbuds every once in awhile so you can fully immerse yourself in the unique experience that is commuting on the B Line.
