This Is Not A Good Sign

I’ve never been so unhappy to see an influx of people emerging from the ground.  I definitely just missed the subway.  I knew I shouldn’t have gone back into my bedroom to change jackets.  Even as I was doing it, I thought to myself, “Gosh, it would really suck if this extra 45 seconds resulted in me missing the train”.  Well, my friends, it cost me a train … Or did it?

If ever in this situation, you have to react quickly.  You must decide if you are going to exert yourself and physically barrel down the stairs for the chance to catch the train as it idles in the station prior to departing.   Assess density of the heard of subway riders walking up the stairs.  If you see what looks to be a nearly impenetrable flock of straphangers, this may actually be your best shot, because it means the train just pulled in.  Just realize what you’re getting yourself into.  If you’re gonna make this happen, you need to be aggressive.  So now you must ask yourself one question – are you gonna be that guy?
