  1. You prolly make more now as a T/O with the late clears,RDO's and built in OT...But after the 3 years that check would look pretty decent.Yur really considering coming back??
  2. Maybe the A will work out better for u...I ran into a couple of TSS's in the past who came from the A and said they couldn't wait to go back so I'm guessing it's less stressful over there.
  3. Really??I guess they need more help in the A...
  4. Dave,I don't wanna see u standing at Rock-Center telling TO's "ten miles over that switch"on the radio!!!! Congrats...U deserve it my brother!
  5. The and line SUCKS!!!If I had to choose I'll roll with the ONLY on an EARLY pm shift because yur express in Queens both ways and get it out the way before those D@mn track gangs hit the road!!!You wanna be off that line by atleast 2300 hrs or a lil after...It's a work-horse but if u got a good C/R u guys can knock it out plus the 160's can make it a lil better....Now the is PURE punishment!!LOCAL all the way in Queens,Manhattan,Brooklyn u got all these timers,twists and turns etc.and at Nite a lot of work trains can plug you up in Bklyn soooo you wanna be off the road by atleast 2200 hrs.If u don't have any seniority,u aint getting NO EARLY PM jobs on those lines.If u can pick outta Brooklyn,I'd stay in the A division...
  6. Sun/Mon is good!I had Sun/Sat for a minute too...It goes by pretty quick but I aint complaining,just enjoying it while it lasts.I just came off of vacation the first week of the New Year and hooked up some AVA's-came out to 11 days total...First day back,got screwed with the R line...
  7. LMAO!!! Oh really?? Sure, I'll be glad to show u the B-Division lines...Just make sure to give me a call to schedule it because I'm very BUSY on the WEEKENDS watching sportscenter and Yo Gabba-Gabba with the kids while u figure out how to read the G.O.s... I got the PM's on lockdown....

  11. Really?Most of us prolly thought u were talking about the rats!!!I didn't notice any Water Bugs(flying roaches)when I walked those tracks...Have u ever walked back from Metropolitan Ave. Yard at nite?Now I don't know about u but I ain't messin with those Racoons!!!:eek:I have the utmost respect for those suckers....
  12. lol...You have to make noise and let them know u are comin so they'll scatter!Try carrying a shoe paddle....I used to work with old-timers that loved to catch and throw em!:eek:
  13. That whole situation made me uncomfortable man......I was in total shock!I really felt sorry for the guy.Yeh,I lost my radio once and didn't realize it til the next day!I was more p*ssed than anything because I didn't wan't to pay 900$ for that POS radio!Luckily,I called the terminal from the nite before and someone was nice enough to leave it with the TD.
  14. lol..With all due respect it was a guy.That was some wild stuff that went down,glad I'm here to tell you about it!This job can be dangerous at times.....

  16. I walked to work that Monday and it was BAD!The wind caught my breathe a couple of times and I really should have stayed home....D*mn sanitation!!!The streets in my neighborhood are STILL covered with snow.
  17. Hey people wassup??lol I gotta end off the year with ONE more story!lol I know,I know-where have u been NASCAR??Ok just let me tell u that I apologize in advance BUT(GOD FORGIVE ME)this is the funniest sh*t I've seen in a looooong time!U know how u may laugh if someone falls but yur not laughing at if they're hurt or not,just the act of falling?Well......Lemme tell u-Since I wanna make fun of people,lets talk about me first.One day(Can't tell u where)I had to do a Put-in(prepare a train for service for all u civilians:p) and I had to ride a relay train down in the tunnel and get dropped off where my train is then there's an operator on the other side that pulls away when SAFE to do so.Remember the word "SAFE".Down here u MUST ALWAYS communicate because u don't know where people's minds are.Anyways,I tell the operator at the other end"Partner,I'm getting off on the other end and when I get down to the road-bed, I will let u know on the radio and u can charge up and leave."Ok so I pull the train down dump it and open the door and for some reason the storm door isn't locking so I'm wrestling with this SOB and it finally locks and I put the safety chain on and I hear air release- and guess what??The SOB starts to move and I'm like"NOOOOOOO FVCKIN WAY!!!"I told this DIK that I will let him know when it's SAFE to move via the radio!!!!:mad: Guess what I had to do?Yup- jump off that sucker QUICKLY!!!!I threw my bag on the tracks and hopped off that MF!!!It was a scary feeling because I could have been hurt really bad or killed.I'm in pretty good shape but some people down here have back and leg problems and lets face it,some operators are kinda up there in age and I know prolly wouldn't have the BALLZ to jump cuz its REALLY high!!!!!I didn't bang this DIK in because I'm not a sucka like that BUT I can't wait to see him because I'm definitely gonna give him a piece of my mind-and would you believe he came out of my class??lol SOB Anyways,I was ok(thank GOD) and was able to make my interval.This may sound crazy but sometimes workin for Transit either u gonna laugh or you'll end up Cryin!:cry: Remember the word CRY!!lolololololol Ok so lets move on to the story of the day...I had a job that required me to do a relay and this time I'm on the other end pulling the train out of the tunnel to go into service south-bound.Ok so the the train operator on the other end dumps the train gives me two buzzes so I can charge up and move into the station when I get the line-up.After I charge up,I'm putting in my ear-plugs and I hear a LOUD scream so I'm like-WTF is that??:confused:The scream is getting closer and closer...I hop up and look out my cab window on the operators side and see nothing!WTF is that noise??So I look out the cab window and it sounds like a woman screaming.It's a loud pitch sound!You ever go into a haunted house and hear the fake spooky ghost sounds like.....Whooooooahhhhhhhhhhh.......Whoooooooooahhhhhhhhh........whoooooooahhhhhhhhhhhh??!!!YEH it sounds similar to that but to give you a better picture in yur mind,imagine the Pillsbury Doe Boy yelling Whoooooooooahhhhhhh.......Whoooooooooahhhhhhhh REALLY LOUD!WTF??:confused:Ok so I finally see an orange vest and it's a Train Operator yelling into the radio!So I yell saying "what's up partner?? You ok??"The operator kept yelling in the high pitched Pillsbury Doe Boy Ghost voice....."Whoooooooahhhhhhh.....Whooooooooooahhhhhhhh-Control,Control Im the train operator on the ****Put-in(Can't tell U again:p) and the train took off on me while I was on the back and MY BAG,MY BAG is on the back of the train....Whooooooooooahhhhhhhhhh.........whooooooooahhhhhh.......MY BAG,MY BAG........Whooooooooahhhhhhhh........Whooooooooooooahhhh!!!"So the operator yells to me"let me up....let me up!"So the Operator climbs up to my cab and I open the door and guess what?The operator's sweating and crying like a little kid who lost his/her mama at the mall!Guess what?It's a Grown-azz MAN!!!!!!!!lolololol YESSSSSSSSS a GROWN MAN sounding like a GIRL!!!So controls says to him"Operator calm down with all that anxiety we can't understand what yur saying,can you please talk clearly so we can help you."So the Pillsbury Doe Boy Ghost sounding train operator says "Control-MY BAG,MY BAG is on the relay train that left me and please don't let it leave from the terminal.....Whoooooooooahhhhhhhhh.....Whoooooooahhhhhh.....MY BAG,MY BAG!!" So control finally contacts the tower and says for the Female Operator to contact them when they get to the terminal.LMAO!!!!!FEMALE operator???lolololol Ok it gets better.....The FEMALE sounding Pillsbury Doe Boy Ghost voice Train Operator GRABS the master controller of MY train and tries to take power on some taking of Pelham Bay Sh*t to get the GOD D*MN BAG!!!WTF is wrong with this dude??I take my keys out of the train and finally tell him to RELAX and CALM down because someone is gonna get the bag....GEEEESH! So he's STILL crying and sweating and HOPS off my train and RUNS down the tracks ALL THE WAY into the station hoping to get that BAG!!!!!!!I finally get the line-up and didn't move because a Pillsbury Doe Boy is running down the tracks like a Jack-azz!SMH Later on that day I found out he got the bag because when I came into the crewroom I see him eating his lunch very quietly....Mr.Female sounding Pillsbury Doe Boy Ghost voice Train Operator u ought to be ASHAMED of yurself....MAN UP!!!! Yur worried about a BAG????You could have been seriously hurt or killed and here you are acting like a little wussss!!!!!!You have become the laughing stock of the terminal now.....Whoooooooooahhhhhhh........Whooooooooahhhhhhhh!!Are you kidding me?lolololololol I'm not finished(I know it's a long story)the SAME train that left him was the SAME train I had to jump off of and it's the SAME job Pillsbury Ghost had and the SAME track HIS train was layed up on for him to put into service!!!!!!LMAO lolololololol!!!!!!You CAN'T make this stuff up!!!Seriously,I'm glad he wasn't hurt tho....Everyone have a safe New Year and many Blessings!NASCAR.....IAM Bob Ross
  18. OH SH*T!!!!!!!!!!! This guy was in my class or should I say group in July 2008!Good Job Boss...:cool:
  19. LMAO!!!!OMG that's GREAT!!!!I'm not gonna lie you have a couple of "Beakie" type TSS's around that just LIVE to get you in trouble but usually TSS's keep it movin...You might have people from "system safety" riding yur train at any given moment too.Quick story...I was on the last month and my C/R was sooo slow and we got to Mott Ave. a lil tardy and I noticed this "System Safety" guy that I saw at 130 Livingston Street(I NEVER forget a face) get off my train and he rolled his eyes at me I guess he missed his bus or something. You NEVER know who's riding yur train...Ha Ha
  20. A RAT BASTARD!!!!! People going around checking to see if yur doing yur job.When I was a cleaner,I used to see them messing with the station agents.They would check to see if the agents would "Nickel" meaning pocket the money and let them thru the gate or to see if the agents are being rude if he/she have too many customer complaints.Beakies as far as I know were part of supervision.You could smell them!!!They were too obvious....
  21. Mr.Walder...Welcome to New York! This aint London Homeboy...
  22. People get on yur A-Game...Management is really gonna come down on us now!
