For people not from here (ie.. Philadelphia)…. SEPTA is the amazing regional transportation system that we have. I am so thankful to be able to walk out my door and jump on the train and get to Center City in a reasonable amount of time. It’s times like this morning that I love knowing that SEPTA is there to get me to my destination…. albeit 30 minutes late without explanation which made me late for my final exam in pharmacology.
Isn’t there somewhere where I can ask for a refund for my ticket when the train is that late?????? Yes, I planned ahead and decided to take the train that would get me into the city at 8.26…PLENTY of time for a leisurely stroll down 10th Street to the building where my exam was being held. Well, 7.47am went… 8am went by… finally, the train came at 8.23am this morning. Thank goodness there are intelligent people in the SEPTA system and ran the train express from Morton because frankly the train wouldn’t hold any more people… I got to Market East at 8.53… and RAN to my exam… got there at 9.01. So, I guess I wasn’t all that late…but my nerves were totally fried by that point.
Tomorrow my exam is at 8am… I’m taking the first train into the city at 5.30… just to be safe (and, yes… I’ll be up… I got up at 4am this morning).
One down… 3 more to go.
