Wow, I had a lot of comics early on about subway construction messing up the commute. This comic is based off of a situation that never really affected me which had to do with some local stops in Brooklyn. Sometimes there would be no uptown service to R and W stations in Brooklyn. Which meant that people would have to take the train all the way to Manhattan, and then get a downtown subway back to Brooklyn in order to get to the local stops. We’re talking something like a fifteen to twenty minute detour including going to Manhattan and coming back which is pretty ridiculous.
