Random Stuff

The MTA wants to raise the fare from $2.00 to $2.25. Are you kidding me? I can barely get damn seat, or get a train on time and you want more money. I wish my employer would give me raises for mediocre work, absences and lateness. Shhiiittt!! I would be rich after working for only a year.

According to my calculations buying breakfast everyday at work would cost approximately $55 per month. This is the low end breakfast. Nothing with the fancy, smancy coffee and whole wheat blah blah. As long as I keep thinking of this as my electric and gas bill then am good. I will not be tempted to buy anything.

The $20 worth of gas in my car is estimated to last three weeks. Yeahhhhhhhhh!!!

On my new quest to conserve energy my electrical bill has dropped by over $20 per month in the past three months. I will continue with my conservation efforts, there is quite a bit more I can do.

it's all about finding those corners to cut. no chance you could fix a breakfast-on-the-go at home, is there?

down here in philly, SEPTA just increased their fares - maybe it's just contagious. I'm not trippin though, it's just an additional $6 a month (wait a minute, that's an additional $72 a year!) *ahem* ...transit companies suck.

I think it's only fair that BEFORE the MTA asks for another fare increase---they show me and the rest of the world what they've done with all the money they've reeled in from the last one cuz hell if the stations haven't gotten filthier...the announcements twice as inaudible...and the service still sucks double time and a half!!
