The Commuter vs. The Dairy Farmer

After being evacuated from Union Station last Thursday (see below posts) I was talking to a fellow disgruntled MARC commuter as we waited on the paltform for the delayed 6:40p.m. Penn Line toward Baltimore.

Exasperated by the system's frequent delays he said "Maybe I'll just become a dairy farmer" to escape the trials of commuting on the MARC.

I have to admit that at the time I agreed with the appeal of a career change, which would entail riding around on a pickup or tractor in the country versus a delay-ridden train through suburbs into the city.
