And I was trying not to break a sweat

A great big rusty-pipe-up-yours-with-no-tetanus-shot-afterwards to the Hollywood Blvd. Tri-Rail station workers this morning.

After snippily sending passengers for the 8:03 a.m. train, which actually arrived closer to 8:20 a.m., to the East platform for boarding, the station workers waited till about 30 seconds before the Southbound train to Miami pulled into the station to say "oops!" and call all the passengers back to the West platform for boarding.

Running like O.J. through the airport in a Hertz commercial, lugging a deadweight laptop bag, and virtually hurdling other people's stuff to make it to the end of the platform, around the fence, across the tracks and back down the other side before the train closed its doors? Not my ideal start to the morning. I was sweating like in middle school gym class.

Hey, Tri-Rail: Save some money on payroll. I can find my way to the wrong side of the tracks without help.

  • You should get a Weekly Behavior Award for Most Optimistic Outlook for just riding Tri-Rail

  • You could get retired people to hang out at the train stations and give bad directions and yell at appliances for next to nothing, also.
