On trains

Blimey. Travelling in from suburbs to Philly today. Going in after the rush.

A single is $5, the return is $6.50; oh but I'm coming back in the rush hour so that'll be an extra $1.25 please! And you get 2 tickets, one valid for non-rush, one valid.

None of theis poxy ex-BR stuff where you have to get a full return or avoid the blue saver Tuesday mid month special saver for those under 5' 3"...

Yes I know all that fare complication has mostly gone, but I mean, £3.90 for a half hour return run into town...

There's lot to dislike about America, but this "ain't" it. (and don't start me on that list!!)
