I like the driver on the Blue who says, "Mmmmmmmmmmmmmaverick!" Why don't they all chat it up and be silly? It really makes a difference in an otherwise horrid, time-wasting commute.
One day I arrived at the Blue at Government Center during the evening rush hour to discover the entire platform was packed, as if a train hadn't come in a very long time. I then noted the train stopped on the bound-to-Bowdoin side - there were T employees in orange vests swarming all around, and a T dog barking, and signs of a struggle in the car. We all watched for 10-15 minutes as something or other went on in that stopped train, and a Green Line arrived every minute pouring more and more commuters onto the Blue Line platform. It was insane. Finally, after some more struggle and barking, a T employee emerged from the stopped train, pushing some poor screaming man who had been restrained to a wheelchair.
It was bizzah.
Finally the T came again. The first three trains went right by all of us with their lights out, as the crowd grew and grew. When a train finally stopped....I've never been so packed into a T car. I spilled out the door by osmosis when we arrived at Maverick.
