What's more annoying? The delay caused by a defective train ahead, or the persistent, every-45-second announcement about the delay?
"Your attention please. We are experiencing a delay, and we regret this inconvenience. We expect to be moving shortly."
And I mean
And even when we finally do start moving the announcement still persists.
I've certainly been critical of the CTA in the past for not providing enough timely information to riders during emergencies. But this was ridiculous. And the operator was telling us what was going on with the defective train.
So enough already!
OK, glad I got that off my chest.
