I suppose that wherever it was you had to go was SO important, and you had to get there SO fast, that you couldn't be bothered to walk ALL THE WAY to the end of the platform at City Center. You should consider yourself lucky I don't have my zucchini with me . . .
Here's the problem. You were SO anxious to cross the tracks that you didn't even stop to look to see if the crosswalk would be open. Which is why you had to wait for a Green Line train to stop at the platform, wait, and then pull out, all while the crosswalk was open a few feet north of you. You could have crossed in front of the train while it was stopped at the station, but no, you were too good for that.
Oh, and once the train finally got out of the way, you crossed the street, and you couldn't get onto the sidewalk! There's a fence down the side of the street! You had to walk up to where the crosswalk was anyway, except that now you were walking in the street instead of on the platform. SO inconvenient. Because, guess what?
Does that ever occur to you, ever? Ever?
