Despite my best efforts to hustle, I missed the train by that much.
In fact, when I was halfway up the stair case, I heard the doors close. It then teased a minute by sitting still with the doors closed until I reached the top step. Then the train pulled away.
(Note: yes, everything happens because of me.)
This put me on a later train, that left me a few minutes and a bit of hustle from catching a good train. As I may have mentioned before, If I catch the 10:32 I get home at 11:10 or so. If I catch the 10:44, I get home at 11:44.
Unfortunately, the later train became the “how f@#king late is this thing?” train and I even missed the 10:44.
However, there was an express leaving soon after that and I was shocked at how empty it was. I even managed to get a seat, which was the only good thing about the delays. I ended up getting home at 11:44 and this is the result.
Now, it’s bed time.
