Now normally the Red Line from Alewife inward gets pretty packed. On one terminus it hits Harvard and then passes through MIT’s campus, Cambridge proper, Mass General, Park St,, Downtown Crossing and then South Station onward to either Ashmont or Braintree from there.
But today was super packed coming home. Normally you’ve got a fair amount of separation between yourself and other passengers. Today though we had about 4 to 6 inches between us. It was tight. To the point where we stop at South Station and I can’t get off the train.
So that’s when the voice comes – and I loudly state “Make a hole please! Let’s move it people!”
I know, I can’t help myself. But sometimes you have to jolt the dolts out of their stupor. And I’m just the guy to do that.
