I promise to limit myself to transit-related ones on this blog. This may become a recurring thing, if I feel like it.
The first one I didn't find. It is similar to an endless volume of other comments on Facebook, and does as well as a representative example as any number of others would:

- Do you feel better now?
- Are you SURE the train was two minutes early? Or did your timepiece just SAY it was two minutes? Discounting the off chance that you took the 248 or the F590 at the beginning of your journey, you drove to the 4800 West TRAX Station, which means that you had at least some control over when you got there. Why did you allow less than two minutes to get from that crazy-long parking lot onto the TRAX platform (see picture below)? Too late now; you don't remember the details well enough to answer.
- *YOUR HORRENDOUS SERVICE
- It's actually okay if you don't take the train anymore because individual equilibrium (IE) indicates that, when one person stops taking transit, another will start, due to the extra car on the road complicating someone else's life. With any luck, the person who takes your place will be nice and easygoing. And all of us who take transit will be grateful for that.
|Seriously, this parking lot is LONG.|
Then there's this beauty:
- All involved will have disregarded multiple signs, flashing signals, and even physical impediments to crossing the TRAX line before ever making contact with a train. Anyone who bothers to pay attention will be fine.
- During the same amount of time, at least ten times as many people will be killed by cars, and no one will care or even notice. I wish we weren't so callous to the dangers of cars in our society, but we are.
Someone weighed in on the opening of the Airport Line a while ago:
- *Airport TRAX Line
- *schedules match, or *schedule matches; probably the first, since you used the singular "Line"
- Let me get this straight. You're saying that:
- No one who lives in Rose Park is important
- No one who works on North Temple is important
- No one who works at, or patronizes, the Utah State Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired is important
- No one who goes to the State Fair is important
- No one who works at, or patronizes, the airport between the hours of 5:16 a.m. and 11:37 p.m. is important
- You're right; the Airport Line is going to be worthless. I may as well give up now.
And this was the one that finally convinced me I should write this post:
- I . . . I have nothing to say. I cannot disagree . . .
