I’m going to bitch right now about the G train.
So what’s new? Everyone bitches about the train. Everyone bitches that it never comes or that it’s too short or that it doesn’t go to Park Slope. My bitch is that it doesn’t go where it’s fucking supposed to go.
As a kid I took the G to Steinway Street to go to the movies or shopping. I also took it to the Queens Center Mall. One train. The G is supposed to go to Forest Hills. Except that it never fucking does. Sometime when I was a teenager it started the bullshit of ending at Court Square sometimes. But now it seems like that’s the end of the line for it all the time. According to the MTA the G is slated as going to Forest Hills part-time. Nights, 9pm – 5:30am, and weekends. But as we all know from the subway signs the G isn’t going to Forest Hills on the weekends “until further notice“. So now the only time you can take the G train past Court Square is weeknights past 9pm? When the mall is closed and if you catch a late movie on Steinway, you’ll have to take three fucking trains to get home. It would be quicker to walk to fucking Astoria.
What brought on this? The aggravating amount of time it took me to get to Target on Saturday. Why, oh why, do I have to to take three trains to go 6 miles? How absurd is that?
I just wish the G would go where it’s originally supposed to go. Is that so much to ask?!
