A few words about the Haves vs. the Have Nots:

Thursday night, Express Bus: More than three and a half hours to get home, involving walking several miles and being crammed onto the bus like a sardine. Came home smelling like human desperation.

Tonight, car service: Home in 40 minutes, door-to-door service, and it was just me and the driver. Arrived home smelling like fancy car and businessman cologne.

Something is seriously wrong with that equation.

One time when we visited M's friend in New York, we used a car service a few times because it was faster. The cost, however, really bothered me and we became low on NY Visit funds two days into our four day trip. That and eating out constantly because our friend didn't keep any food around (would have bought groceries but I wasn't going to clean the guy's already messy kitchen so I could cook because I am not that kind of cool chick - I did that thanklessly for punk rock boyfriends as a teenager, never again thankyouverymuch.) made me so money conscious while we were there I barely enjoyed myself.

Perhaps I should have specified that I didn't actually have to pay for it. Apparently our comapny's blanket organization contracts with this car service. We're allowed to use it if we get stuck late, or when the trains aren't running, or whatever. I took the Express Bus Thursday and Friday, and took the Express Bus in to work today, but I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get it home tonight, and it doesn't run at all on Sundays. The MTA tweeted earlier today that my subway line should be totally operational again today, but as of the 8:07 pm post on their website, service is still suspended.

As of the 4:31 am update on mta.info, my subway line is *still* down. Maybe it'll be back by the time I have to be at work on Thursday.

I hope so.

Frustrating and completely annoying. Been there myself.
