So here it goes. I am riding home on the train this evening, and standing by the center doors on the train. When my stop approaches, I walk back to the door at the end of the car. An important detail is that at the center door, there was really no one there. When I walk back, I have too stand behind some people. Now for the interesting part. The conductor stares at me and says "You could have been the 2nd person out that door, or the 8th out this one." To which I reply "are you talking to me?" Then he procedes to say to the people around him, people like me make the train late for it's other stops.

So the train stops and of coure I am probaly the 8th person out that door. As I step off, I tell him "you better watch running your mouth."

Now I can't wait what kind of shit he gives me when I see him tomorrow night

Do you guys think I should have kept my mouth shut? I was really burning up

Why I do that all the time, maybe that's why I get to sit three across with no one next to me.

Working NYPD Transit, I can tell you that's a major pet peeve with the conductors. They can't understand why everyone trys to get through one door when others are open. It all a time table with them.

Don't sweat it. He's miserable. Imagine if you had to sit in a small box all day for work.

Yeah, I think that you overreacted.

Tape recorder or hidden video camera! Record his actions and comments, and send them into NJT or whoever he works for. Most people will get tired of getting reprimanded after a few months of stuff being sent into their company that is documenting someones attitude. If enough gets sent in, he could loose his job or get sent to a shit job that requires no customer service.

Now that's a good idea.

My commute involves about 8 miles of country driving (watch out for the deer, enjoy the views of big rolling hills and cornfields). Depending on which route I take, (all backroads into Syracuse compared to a county route), maybe ZERO traffic, followed by 7 miles of usually minor traffic. Typically a ~20-25 minute drive.

Tough to take

Thread Hijack....My commute takes 4 minutes in a company car. I can literally wake up, do the 3 Ss and make it to work in less 15 minutes.

BTW, Why isn't there an exit door and entrance door? Wouldn't that be quicker?

Tie a nice long piece of rope to a pole. Lasso his head as goes by, flip him the bird.

The company I drive truck for has a terminal in East Brunswick, NJ and from time to time I will catch the train from Rutgers up to Manhattan to go visit family.

This one time (no, not at band camp ) I had stayed late having taken my cousin who lives in the Village to get some chinese for dinner.

After exchanging good byes, I hiked back up to Penn Station and got on the train back to NJ.

It had been a long day, and lots of walking in NYC (think I went over the the USS Intrepid musuem this time...) and was dead tired.

So I'm fading in and out of a light sleep when I hear over the PA "Next stop, Elizabeth!" so I grab my stuff and jump off at the platform. IN ELIZABETH!!!.

Now this was late October/early November. Nice enough all day without a coat, but at 11:00 PM the wind and the snow started and those familiar know train service is anything but "regular" this time of the night!

I found the schedule and I had to wait another hour for the next local train!! Damn!

Learned my lesson that time, but... I forgot what it was

The other morning I called in a complaint. On their hats they wear a pin that identifies either conductor or asst., and an ID #. That night he wasn't wearing the pin, I mentioned that when I called in the morn. That evening he did't say a word, and was wearing a pin. Don't know if they spoke to him or if it was a coincedence.

Follow up with a letter complaint stating that he does not always wear an ID number, and the next day he was wearing it. I know for a fact that if you call a complaint in on some people and they have friends, the complaint will get lost.
If you send in a letter, they must reply.
