On Time ... Finally!

Wow, it's an early Halloween miracle ... we were actually "on time" today. We pulled into the track right at 8:23 at South Station. Hallelujah!!!

It almost makes up for being squashed from Framingham all the way into Boston. Some dude decided to practically sit on me so he'd have enough of his own personal space to read the paper and chat on his cell phone. Thanks, rude rider, I didn't need the entire left side of my body.

Lots of comments have been coming in about the parking increase, people are none to happy. I've pretty much resigned myself to the idea that it's coming and there's nothing we can do about it. Unfortunatley, they're certainly not going to make it easy on us in terms of a parking sticker or some other more efficient way to pay the fee.

I quite like the idea of the $4 in dollar coins. I'm going to have to see if these will fit into the slots. I'll report back!

It has been my experience that the Sacagawea dollar will fit into the parking fee slot - at least at the Wakefield station and it looks like a standard box to me.

What if we stuck little protest cards in with our dollar bills?

Do what I do: use the dollar bills as tissue and blow your nose into it. I've saved a lot of money by not buying tissues.

quit your whining and use $2 dollar bills.

Either that or ride a bike.
