So we have like a billion sets of train tracks that go through my little college town. Okay, okay, we have 3 or 4. Either way, they run right through downtown where I work. I always get stuck by these things. Today I sat at one for 25 minutes. TWENTY-FIVE MINUTES!
I probably wouldn't mind if I didn't drive a gas-guzzling SUV or had some AC. Really, though? Twenty-five minutes? The train even came to a complete stop today.
What if there was an emergency?
