i know this blog isnt about me, but this entry sorta will be. strictly philadelphia related, so there’s a good deal that none of this will mean anything to the lot of you.
this is a rant about septa. if you’re not from/living in philly and are still reading for some reason, septa is the city’s transit system. this is specifically a rant about the 46th street train station. this is specifically specifically about how it totally and completely sucks.
okay, firstly? the escalators NEVER work. there are two escalators. nearly every day, one is out of service. now, i have my lazy moments, but i dont fall into a fat fit because i have to walk up a flight of stairs. i go for the stairs most times anyway. but to know that MY tax dollars paid for this shit and it has the nerve to be inoperable and unusable most of the time? hell no. fix it or give me some form of a refund.
that’s reason number one why the station sucks.
reason number two is the bright, clean, pretty sales window that HAS NEVER BEEN OPENED SINCE THE STATION ITSELF HAS. wtf is your problem?? why do you think this is okay, septa??! can i tell u quickly why it isnt okay? because i cannot tell you how many times i have stood in a line longer than the one at the gates of heaven to put my $2 fare @ the fare window because everybody in front of me is buying transpasses and 10 packs of tokens and using debit cards and standin around waitin for change and shit AS MULTIPLE TRAINS PASS US ALL BY. that’s what the big bright clean pretty sales window that i helped pay for is for, septa!!! you got all this fancy shit at this station and YOU AINT USIN IT. its infuriating!
GET IT TOGETHER!!!!!!!!! EXPEDITIOUSLY!!!
