The Way It Is, Like It Or Not...
THIS is corporate America. They claim that they truly care about their customers, but what they really care about is their customer’s money. They tell their employees to plaster a smile on their face and be polite to make sure that they give you their money.
This isn’t corporate america. This is asshole america. Subway is not “corporate.” Stores are franchises owned by individual franchisees.
And good for you Savannah. It’s nice to see people stand up for the right thing once in awhile.
Boy they sure do emphasize the Olive Oil part even though it’s only 10 percent of the packet…
Ten MTA employees, including two supervisors, have been arrested in the long-running faked signal inspection scandal that has been roiling the Transit Authority for two years now. The workers are being accused of collectively filing 33 false inspection reports during 2009 and 2010 under the direction of their supervisors. What they were supposed to be inspecting? Oh, just the very mechanisms that control subway traffic.
“Failing to properly inspect the subway system can lead to delays in service and, potentially, endanger the safety of subway riders,” Manhattan DA Cy Vance said in a statement announcing the arrests. Each of the inspectors were charged with one or more felony counts of tampering with public records, which carries a maximum of seven years in prison."

The W train ran from the Ditmars Boulevard subway stop at 31st Street in Astoria along the Broadway line and ended at the Whitehall Street stop in Lower Manhattan from 2004-10, and ran from Ditmars to Coney Island in Brooklyn from 2001-04.
As Queens Crapper correctly noted, what about the Q train, which already runs from Astoria to Coney Island? Why does the W need to make a return if the Q makes the same route?
It reminds me of that idiot Joe Crowley who keeps arguing that Elmhurst needs more transit options so he wants to re-open the Long Island Railroad station in Elmhurst, an area surrounded by at least 7 subway stations and numerous bus lines.
The reason they do this is simple. It’s a very visible thing they can do and say “Look what I brought to my constituents!”
Whether or not it’s necessary is irrelevant; it just has to be there so they can point to it in a campaign ad.
my number one pet peeve is when people say that...
