Dear People in Train Gate Queue,

Let’s calm down, alright. The gates are shit. It’s an unfortunate downgrade for Wynyard Station. But let’s not chastise the old lady that’s desperately trying to scan her card. It’s not her fault. It’s unreliable technology, it’s pressure, it’s Donald Trump.

Maybe, if they hadn’t decided on raising the heights of the barriers, she could have vaulted the gates right now.

Maybe, maybe, maybe. Too many maybe’s to get angry about.

Embrace the maybe, the uncertainty, the see-saw. It’s a fun ride.
