I am not sure if LIRR is trying to get these old trains decommissioned or not but they are making a great claims with these bathrooms.
Yesterday morning everything was going fine, until the train arrived and it was an old train. As the doors opened the stench from the bathroom was horrific. It smelt like someone had died in the bathroom and forgot to flush on his way out. Usually I can tolerate the smell, when it’s not too bad, but this was just way too strong of a stench to deal. I had to move toward the front of the car away from the bathroom. I didn’t feel like switching cars because I hate moving from car to car while the train is moving, it’s just freaky.
I beg you Long Island Rail Road PLEASE decommission this nasty old trains, or at least have a cleaning crew clean the bathrooms before your send out the train to pick up hundreds of people at 7:30 in them morning. We pay to much money to have to deal with smelling shit for 50 minutes while we commute into the city.
Ugh after wonderful day at work I get stuck on a wonderful, old LIRR train. Seriously when are they going to decommission these bad boys.
As I stand there on track 21 waiting for the train to come, everyone looking in the direction in the direction the train comes from. Suddenly the lights show and to my disgust it’s an disgusting, old LIRR train. Seriously these trains need to be decommissioned. Half the window seats have no arm rests, how’s a guy to sleep. Half the aisle seats (the ones on the three seaters) have no head rests, again how’s a guy to sleep. The lights don’t stay on half the time, how’s a guy to read.
Yet one day waiting for the morning train, yet another old train arrives and the person next to me goes “Oldie but goody.” Now I have used this phrase before but mostly when I’m talking about a song or movie. I couldn’t quite tell if he was being sarcastic. But then he started to talk to his group of friends and they all agreed to like these old trains over the newer trains. I really don’t understand how anyone could like these older trains over the newer trains, but I guess to each his own.
So apparently today is park(ing) day. This pretty kewl phenomenon where New Yorkers take over a precious NYC parking spot and use ti for there own personal use. I haven’t actually been out of the office today, so I haven’t gotten a chance to see any set up, but many of them I from a video lay down sod and/or astro turf along with a bench and/or some chairs and just relax. The video I watched was located here: http://parkingdaynyc.org/.
