I’d been wanting to take public transportation from home in Pasadena to work in Beverly Hills, and today I finally did it. The train and bus were great, much more pleasant than driving, and it didn’t take that much longer. And given the prices of an LA Metro day pass and a gallon of gas, it’s actually cheaper.
The only problem was one I caused myself - I use my work ID to get into my office, and guess where it’s sitting right now? That’s right; it’s in my car. Live and learn. Or rather, live, learn and depend on the kindness of co-workers.
