Day 4: The Ever-Dependable Public Transit
I thought this was funny yet so true. I took this picture while waiting for the bus one morning on my way to work. Ride On bus runs in Montgomery County, MD. Not all routes throughout the county are created equally when it comes to convenience and dependability. If you are trying to get somewhere on time you better leave your house 20-30 minutes earlier than normal (especially if you have to get on the train). Otherwise you are going to be late. Sometimes the buses are extremely late and so packed with patrons you can see the people before you actually see the bus. Or the bus may not show at all. It can be extremely frustrating, especially when it's freezing outside and all you want to do is go home. So I can understand why someone would say Ride On "SUCKS". Now with the American flag on the post, how would you interpret the photo? Ride On Sucks America? God Bless Ride On? Or Only God Can Save Montgomery County Ride On Buses from Sucking? LOL!
