"This Is Us" character William started courting a young woman he would see on the bus every day.
This got me thinking about the wonderful people I've met in my travels. I mean the people that were literally sitting next to me on planes, trains, and buses. Have you ever made friends with someone on a bus or train? Are you still in touch?
There are some things about NJ Transit trains that puzzle me. What exactly does that hole puncher do and why do the conductors have to squeeze it so many times for each passenger's ticket? I worry that they may get Carpel Tunnel Syndrome! Is all that punching really necessary in these days of computer and smart phone technology? Why do they then stick a piece of paper in the slot in front of each seat? What exactly does that indicate? I understand why they would offer seating for families and friends who want to stay together, but why isn't there any legroom between those two rows of seats that face each other?

I’m a big fan of New Jersey Transit. The bus out of Toms River is great as is the North Jersey Coast Line train or the train you might take out of the bigger stations like MetroPark or Hamilton...

I get car sick. I've struggled with it most of my life...
