I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte


So I'm commuting via train, as the option of driving doesn't exist.

Commuting via train means I'm getting up about 1.5 hours earlier than I normally would, in order to get out the door about 1.5 hours before I normally would, to get to work at the same time.

That sucks, BUT
it would honestly be okay, IF
there was any chance in fucking hell of actually getting out the door 1.5 hours earlier than I normally get out the door. HOWEVER,
since I'm the person who's currently on call, there hasn't been any chance of that, BECAUSE
there typically is something that requires an immediate response @ 7:30.
So now I
A) get to work .5 hours late every morning, due to the 15-20 minutes it takes to respond to these issues,
B) spend $24.50 as opposed to $5.75 TO GET THERE (as the tardy departure from my home means I wind up taking a cab to the train, to try to make up lost time- followed by a cab from the train, as there is no bus service and no shuttle service when I DO get off the train), and
C) am without patience whatsoever for any of the imbecility of my coworkers, which leads me to such things as
D) thinking it's time I buy a car, except
E) there's nowhere to park it, despite
F) the existance of a parking space that I am paying for half of, which is occupied by a car I do not drive.
