The Question Club
I am going back to my "home" state in about three weeks.|
I have a choice as to which bus company to use.
Option 1 PROS
-15 dollars as of now. The prices change the closer you get to the date of departure.
-Has WiFi and electrical outlets
-On the same street as ridiculously cheap Chinese bakery that DOESN'T give me the runs
-The drivers speak clearly
OPTION 1 CONS
-No real ticket office to speak of, so if I get lost, I'm screwed.
-WiFi means that I'd have another (semi-heavy) bag to lug around
-Buses stop being hourly after the 6:30 bus. I have to take a crosstown bus and a local train to get to the intersection where the bus is, and the C train has a tendency to be a doucherocket. Therefore, I might miss my bus. And then I'd be out fifteen dollars and screwed.
OPTION 2 PROS
-15 dollars all the time. This means that if I wait until the last minute, I'm not going to pay more than 15 dollars. I will get a seat because I am leaving on a Wednesday.
-It's on a train line I use for work, which means I can take the express almost all the way and then switch to a local and get from where I work to where I need to be in 20 minutes, which (if I run like the dickens) means I could potentially nab a bus an hour earlier.
-It's ALSO near a ridiculously cheap Chinese bakery.
OPTION 2 CONS
-Bus company has a reputation for flipping over, bursting into flames
-Said Chinese bakery DOES give me the runs
-Can't understand the drivers
-No WiFi, which means I will have nothing to do. I have an iPod, but I haven't listened to music in about a month due to a traumatic event and don't need to have an emotional breakdown on a bus.
Both buses would drop me off at the same place.
WHICH ONE DO I TAKE? Serious and non-serious answers welcome!
ETA: OK, geez. The question was kind of stupid. Y'all don't have to freak out on me.
