Lately, I’ve been working a job where I don’t start until around 10am. While this always gives me a seat on the subway, I realize I’ve been missing out on all the free stuff you get in Stockholm in the early morning rush. I think I’ve talked about this before. They often hand out free items with the paper as you enter the subway in the morning – travel toothpaste, candy bar, whatever company is having a promotion.
Well today and tomorrow my husband needs me to drop off my son as he is at a work event so I get to experience the morning freebies! Today I got tomato soup! (Not in my hand, but in a nice, sealed container.) I have an awful cold so this is actually perfect.
I am also dropping my son off tomorrow. If I could get one of those travel packs of tissues, that would be great too (just in case anyone at the transportation department is reading).
I was reading an article in the paper earlier this week about activities on the subway. Five people were polled regarding what they like to do while riding the subway. All five answered “Sleep.”
Is that really what they like to do, or what happens? I started a job last month which is 30 minutes by subway to my house. Not one day has passed that I have made it home awake. I simply can’t do it. I’m fairly sure they are pumping something into the air supply of these trains. Am I the only one blacking out every day? What if it’s a conspiracy and everyone on the train falls asleep at the same time?! What are they doing to us in there?! Someone must find out what is happening!
Or, maybe I should grab a cup of coffee each day before I leave.
