I Want to Get Home...

I had a blast (sarcasm) trying to get home last night.

When I got to the subway, I heard an announcement that trains were not going to the last 4 stations on the line because of electrical issues. (I need to get to the last station.) A few minutes later, they changed it to say trains weren't running between stations 3 and 4 because of debris on the track. Not long after, my train was offloaded for reasons that were never explained.

Next train rolls in, which is mostly full, and all the people from my train pile on. We get to station 4 and are all offloaded. Of course, there is a crush of people trying to get to the shuttle busses to the next station in order to get back on the train.

I don't know how long it took me to finally get on a bus, but it was quite a while. Luckily, the bus I got was going directly to the station I needed. Got to the last station 2 minutes after the bus I needed to get home left. (Buses run every 30 minutes.)

I finally got home about 90 minutes later than usual.
