Crazy for PATH card!
Remember former Hoboken resident (and aspiring soccer player) Nick Gkionis?
I wrote about him back in April, and how he was in Cyprus trying out for various soccer teams.
However, this time, while he’s in England trying to situate himself on yet another soccer team, he wrote this email about a friend of his in Hoboken!:
Did any of you witness this asinine act?
Crazy friend jumps on tracks to retrieve PATH card
I am still in England doing my soccer thing, but my friend today told me something I couldn’t keep in.
She was waiting for the PATH today to go to the city for her job, and she dropped her path-card on the rail tracks.
She apparently thought that path-card was precious so she jumped down on the tracks to get it, in full work outfit. Little did she know that 2 cops were watching the whole thing and quickly gave her a ticket. Not really sure what the ticket would be for though. Maybe ‘the stupidest way to get yourself critically injured’.
She was very upset but I figure to cheer her up by exploiting her die-hard committment not to lose the pathcard.”
Was the girl stupid for jumping on the tracks? Are economic times so tough that you’ll endanger your life?
