You know you're a jaded New Yorker...

I was doing my morning commute, waiting at 42nd for the N/R train downtown, when the E pulled in. I got in. Why? Because my brain didn't even register the letter - just the fact that it was a local train.

Why it was on the N/R track, I still don't know.

It wasn't until I had been on the train for a minute that it suddenly sank in - wait a second, what train is this? I looked at the stops. World Trade Center? WTF, this was an E!

So I got off at 34th and got on the next N/R.
