Most people know how much I hate my commute. I switched it up yet again trying to find something workable for me. I drove to the commuter rail station near where I used to live (so I can use my current subway pass rather than pay for a commuter pass), took it into North Station and then walked to work. Saves $5.50 for parking if I do this rather than park at the Wellington T station (subway) but I'm a slave to the commuter train schedule. Commute time is similar both ways (1 hour each way). Will try the commuter rail thing again to save $5.50/day.
I had to laugh to myself on my trip home on the commuter rail. The person in the seat behind me just started a new job and was talking on his cell phone about his commute. He lives north of Boston and commutes into downtown/south Boston just like me. Commuter train to North Station, orange subway line to red subway line, red subway line to close to work, and finally walk 1/2 mile to his job. That's even worse than my commute! The funny part was he said he was sure he'd get used to it. I said that when I first moved here, but 7 years later I'm still not used to it.
