It happens at least four times a week, I am about to swipe my card at the subway turnstile and I hear the train coming. Now, I have a choice, run, or potentially wait for a long time. I always wait.
When I first moved to New York, Yoko told me, never run for the train, because you don’t want to almost make it and then have the door close in your face. So true, Yoko, it feels a lot worse to have the door close right in front of your nose than miss the train by 100 feet.
