Docking Satellites at Sullivan Square

Bus Departure Time: 7:04
Bus Arrival Time: 7:16

Feared for my life: No


I was the only person at my stop today and I had to wait longer than usual (wah).
Rain tends to slow the bus down and also brings out crowds of people who don't want to walk in it. The Outcome: the bus was packed with people within three stops after I got on.

Since we reached capacity earlier than normal, the bus stopped picking up people and started picking up speed. We got to the T stop faster than I expected.

On the T, there was one curious happening at Sullivan Square. We pulled into the station and came to a stop. Everything seemed normal. Then, the announcer told everyone to stand behind the yellow line because the train was backing up. We paused for a while, but then the train started to back up and then paused again.

I sat there waiting for the doors to open as people on the other side looked in with me with anxious looks.

Then, the train lurched forward about 2 feet, finally stopped, and then opened its doors.

I thought to myself "Are we docking to a satellite here?"

What's with all the precision? Maybe the engineer has OCD about this one stop and IT JUST HAD TO BE PERFECT!!

Maybe? Meh. Type to you Monday.
