Metro-North has had its share of delays this week.
The railroad blamed “congestion due to track work” for many of the delays that ranged from 15 to 30 minutes. Sometimes longer.
And then there was the case of the “slippery rail,” a combination of rain and wet, crushed leaves. The MTA has devoted an entire page to this slimy problem here.
Of course, Metro-North riders don’t like these excuses. They have to get to work on time.
The result are Metro-North Twitter Rants.
Rants, not just against the railroad, but things that piss them off, including fellow passengers
Here’s a collection of the best, or worst, MNTRs.
Dr. Seuss meets @MetroNorthconductor. “The first car is crowded, the second car is packed. If you really want to sit, you must walk back.”
.@MetroNorth, another day, another insufferable delay. What’s the excuse today? Can’t be “wet tracks” ’cause it’s bone dry. Sort it out.
@MetroNorth thanks for telling us you’re running 5-10 min late when you’re already 7 min late. if we were dating I’d kick you to the curb
Why are the weirdest people always on #MetroNorth?
24 yr old D-bag this AM, new suit & resume folder, talking loud on cell making haircut & tanning appts got berated by regulars #metronorth
It boggles my mind that#metronorth conductors use the loud speaker to communicate with each other. Can we get a walkie talkie?
@MetroNorth why does the driver/conductor not let us know we’re going to be 25 mins late so that we can let our offices know?
.@MetroNorth It’s reached the point where even I’m sick of me railing against your inconceivably tardy service; just know that I loathe you
It was a good call on this beer for the ride home. Screaming kids on@MetroNorth
