  1. Another thing, when you say the train did a short stop, how often do that happen? If you notice that, do you report it to the tower or just ask your partner to move up some more? Sounds like everything we doing as conductors is to ensure safety for the public as well as our jobs but not reacting without thinking calmly and clearly.
  2. Something that have been bothering me for the longest and I still don’t understand still, how can someone open the doors on the wrong side? Are they not taught to look for that board and point to it? Can someone please explain that one to me, I mean I don’t mean to sound like a know it all, but that’s common sense. You don’t see the board, you don’t open the doors.
  3. Did you forget to tell us you passed @Schecter ? Lol
  4. I do too but honestly, I’m hoping I get into the B division. No offense to you or anyone else bro but I don’t want to see you in the tubes, because that would mean I’m in the A division, lol.
  5. I know you will do awesome on both the practical and final. We all will be routing for you bro.
  6. How’s school car been treating you bro? Besides the usual, like studying our butts off and paying close attention, what should we incoming freshman be on the look out for?
  7. Your making it hard for me to choose bro, lol.
  8. That’s what I was assuming, a regular duffel would be fine. Guess we know what bag I’m going with, lol.
  9. The duffel I’m looking at have the same 40L capacity like the KAKA bag with no straps, only a handle.
  10. What it sounds like to me is that either the KAKA bag with stowaway shoulder straps will do or a regular duffel bag, or am I bugging? Because if that’s the case, I’ll stick with a duffel instead.
  11. Congrats sis, looking forward to meeting you and the rest on the 19th.
  12. If anything, I’ll return them and go half size bigger.
  13. I’m all honesty, growing up, I assumed the same thing but figured out that wasn’t the case. I’m looking forward to this new chapter of my life, won’t let nothing but the fear of GOD stop me.
  14. How’s school been treating you bro?
  15. I would not be surprised if you did, but it all depends on the vacancies that need to be filled. Also, requests are done in quarters so we will need to wait for the next quarter on what the hiring needs will be. That usually is a way to tell if you will get that golden ticket for your P/E. Please, take what I say with a grain of salt, just posting what I read on this forum. If someone with better knowledge can chime in, that would be greatly appreciated.
  16. Congrats on getting sworn in too bro, I’ll make sure to look out for you on orientation day. Trust me bro, you took the words right out of my mouth, looking forward to this too. I ordered my boots and choose the Rockports. How about you?
  17. Thanks for that little tidbit bro.
  18. Damn bro, truly sorry to hear that. Try calling to see what can be done in your case. There’s still hope.
  19. Aye aye Captain, lol. Looking forward to getting my feet wet and diving right in.
  20. I got you. One can only apply to take promo exams only after they completed their one year probation period?
  21. Congrats bro !!! But 33 years left? I’m lost, lol
  22. Lol, spot on. My fault I wasn’t clear enough. Oddly enough, like others said lately, it was really quiet down at 180. In total, I believe I saw about 5 or 6 people going for their medical for conductor only while others were there for other positions. Sorry if that’s not being to specific. Not counting MTA employees already, I would like to say maybe 20 bodies in total, but that’s a rough estimate. Again, 180 was quiet up until I left around 2pm today. Even from reading the stories that say you will be in medical / final processing all day, they were moving like an assembly line in the MAC. I was really shocked how quick things were going.
