“IMA BE LATE FOR WORK?!!!!”
that was all that was going through my mind this morning.
right after my home-wolf texted me with…
“THEY BOMBIN DOWN IN THE CITY!
way to break the news to a fox who didn’t have breakfast yet.
i hit google and twitter to find out what was going on.
“a dumb ass set off a pipe bomb…
expect to be screwed on your way into work pineapples!…”

that meant i’d be stuck in a damn tunnel for over an hour trying to get into work.
im getting desensitized to all of it now.
i really wanted to turn my tail around and go home.
i sent my boss a text super early:
“so i hear they are bombin down at port authority…”
just like that.
i didn’t sleep at all last night,
so you know the moody was a high key,
and i really didn’t feel like dealing with that shit.
it was like no one knew what was happening tho.
since my career is that of “in the know”,
i try to make sure i’m informed with the goings on.
all the folks on my platform just thought it was some delay.
the train down there moved to a snail’s pace.
and then stopping for long periods.
the attitudes quickly started to shine through.
huffin’ and a puffin’
new yawkers don’t “do” waiting.
when we got somewhere to be,
we need to get there lickety-fuckin’-split.
terrorist or no terrorist.
when i finally got to my stop,
i took a cool walk to my office.
my boss texted and said she was still stuck in the tunnel.
i didn’t mention where i was.
waiting for my breakfast at dunkin donuts,
the day was quiet.
everyone wasn’t really scared,
but moreso wondering how the commute would be on the way home.
that was my thoughts as well.
i’m not trying to be on the train for 2 hours because they can’t get their shit together.
i ended up getting home smoothly tonight.
thus ends another drama filled and anti climatic day in new yawk.
what other nonsense awaits us?
we shall soon find out.
lowkey: the perfect example of ( x how new yawkers handled this morning ).
