I kind of miss the CTA now that I'm back in Liberia. What an understatement. I miss public transportation. I miss infrastructure. I miss order. I miss convenience.
But what I REALLY miss is bitching about the CTA more than anything else. I miss unreasonably comparing it to the London Underground. I miss whining about how old the trains are. I miss making fun of the simple colour naming of the different lines: red, blue, orange, pink and blue.
But most of all, I miss the CTA lady. You know, the one who goes, "Attention please, an in bound train towards the loop will be arriving shortly."
No, b****, it never arrives shortly. It arrives as shortly as a War and Peace novel.
On top of it, is she lazily doing her nails while making this announcement while we are freezing on the platform??
