Pick a Train...

So after a long day at the office, I didn't get on the subway until 6:45PM, I had the worst luck picking the Brooklyn bound train that would leave the Canal Street Station first.  I usually grab the A train, since it's express, but the C local train pulled into the station first, so I got on, found a seat and started to read this week's issue of Time Out New York, which is always chock full of interesting articles about happenings in NYC!    The C train did not leave the station and A train arrived across the platform, so I got off the local train and jumped on the A train, which was crowded.  I started to read again and cursed under my breath when the C train left the station first...The A train stayed in the station and another C train arrived, so I switched again; this time the local train beat the express train out of the station.  

Boy, am I dizzy!
