Runaway Train

Right. I have been known, on occasion, to vent my frustration at the inadequateness (it's a word) of SL, the company that runs the busses, subways and commuter trains of Stockholm. Every year they seem to express surprise at the snow, and they are completely worthless at letting their passengers know what's going on. One would think they are the worst at what they do. And I tend to live under that illusion. Today I am reminded that they still have a lot to learn when it comes to being inept. SJ, I salute you. Today's relatively simple journey from A to B has turned into a farce of near Basil Fawltian proportions. Fuck you. Fuck you very much.

"Ja, vi beklagar, men någon har lagt en fimp på spåret mellan Skärmarbrink och Gullmarsplan, så alla tåg dras in."

Vi bor i Sverige. Det faller snö. Hur kan det överrumpla dem år efter år efter år efter år. My tax dollar, Goddammit!!!

Fimp? Grässtrå. Hårstrå. Andetag.

Mitt problem nu var dock inte SL. Utan SJ. Som för det hela till helt nya katastrofala nivåer.

Ja, SJ är också riktiga fuckfaces.
