We live in the greatest country in the world !!! We are number 1, Boston is number oneest, and the MBTA is is the oniest in the universe !!!

Everyone should learn from us on how to do things, like #soulcycle! If people just virtually soul cycled to work, there would be like less problems with transitation. And they'd be totally healthier.

I talked to Martin, a friend and Mayor of Boston, Friday and he said Boston was doing the best and is the best and has a AAA bond rating and that things are better than ever. I believe everything he says.

Why did I even start reading this? Your rants are usually 100% a waste of time, but this time it doesn't even have anything to do with the topic at hand. 0/100

And I'm not sure which is worse.

1. He knows something we don't and was trying to warn us.

2. He was having a Bad Day. (and nobody noticed/tried to stop him)

3. There is Something Wrong with him (and again, nobody at the T did anything)

My guess is that while he was wrong, and the train was and is safe to operate, keeping it operating safely is hard work for him and the rest of the MBTA staff, and so he was just the first to snap about it. I mean, in a few weeks they'll have to wrap pantyhose around the cooling unit's air intakes for the winter. Again.

This is caused by the general apathy on the part of our employees.

Oh, and is there anyone on board, who knows how to drive a train?

But it has definitely lost its luster. Is it being a grownup, or have times changed that much?

Lost its luster? Tell me why.

...has something to do with the fact that events like the subject of this song are no longer extremely rare.
