SMARTA? Maybe Not...

So MARTA. Yeah. It's been a little hit or miss. Sometimes I've enjoyed the ride and sat happily reading a book or scribbling funny things in my notebook about other passengers on the train. Other times I've stood pressed against the groin of an Indian man standing behind me, while the smelling the head of the passenger in front of me for ten minutes.
The worst feeling is being on a packed train and you come to a stop and the doors open and even though the train is about to burst open with passengers, people at the stop will still try to get on. Holy frick people! Wouldn't you rather just be 10 minutes late for work instead of having to stand in some smushed orgy of commuters from Doraville? I feel more intimate with my MARTA riders than I do some of my family members.
