Mta woes # 52342104

What I don't understand about the trains is why does my express train go local when its supposed to be express. Then, about 5 stops before mine, the conductor makes an announcement that the train will be going express (and bypassing my stop) because it fell behind schedule by going local. The conducter then promises there is another train "right behind us" which passengera can take to the bypassed stops. Except ... There never is another train. It's all a lie. The promised train actually doesn't appear for another 10 minutes. So, that's another 15-20 minutes added to my ride cause of all the extra stops. There there's the other 10 minutes spent waiting for a phantom train. I just don't get it at all. Sometimes it makes me want to cry. I want to cry right now. I am finding myself turning into that crazy person who yells at the PA system on the train because I am just totally fed up with the b.s. bad service and lies told by conductors. Its even worse when they thank you for being patient, because most passengers aren't really patient. They are really just hostages.
