A Chronically Late Train Station Blames Dunkin' Donuts And Passengers Are Pissed

We've heard some pretty lame excuses before but the latest from New Jersey Transit takes the cake, or in this case the donut.


Commuters know all too well that sluggish public transportation is often just a fact of life. Lately though the problem has been getting worse for travelers in the Tri-state area and no one seems interested in taking responsibility for the constant delays and inefficiencies.

One of the worst offenders might be NJ Transit's Hamilton station, where the trains are chronically late and riders are frequently left wondering when they will get to work. Of course that's assuming they get into the station to begin with.

Recently early morning commuters hoping to catch a train have discovered the station doors locked on more than one occasion. One might think it would be the transit system's responsibility, but not according to NJT.



When a frustrated passenger brought up the persistent issue on Twitter an NJT spokesperson with the initials T.B. began pointing fingers at the people really responsible for passengers' transit nightmares, Dunkin' Donuts.


That's right. According to NJT when the coffee and donut chain purchased a location near the Hamilton train station part of the contract included Dunkin' Donuts agreeing to open the station doors on time.




Contract or not customers weren't buying NJT's excuse and wondered how and why a deal like this got made in the first place.









And for many NJT passengers it was the last straw. After chronic delays, constant mismanagement and now this, customers we're pissed a ready to see heads roll at NJT.









So far though NJ Transit has not commented further on the situation so it looks like commuters are stuck waiting for the donut guy in the morning.




And hopefully in the future NJ Transit can find someone far more reliable to open up it's station.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
