Don’t shoot the messenger on this one. Ok, maybe but we’re just the messenger relaying a message from another messenger who reblogged a message from the original messenger.
Yes, this allegedly happened in Brooklyn Heights as told to the NY Post through the lens of Gothamist:
Gothamist: “The first station at Montague and Clinton isn’t operating yet so I rushed over here and now I’m late,” Justin Hugh, 27, told a totally unbiased Post reporter who had not been frantically interviewing three dozen people already in search of the perfect smear quote. Hugh made his remarks at the station at Montague and Hicks streets, which is TWO BLOCKS AWAY from the first station he tried. The Post reports that those two blocks made Hugh “15 minutes late to his Union Square tech job,” presumably because he paused to enjoy the world’s tiniest violinist performing on Henry Street.
Hugh added that the Citi Bike program, which had been live for 24 hours, was “cool but it is not up to speed yet.” Other sporadic glitches were reported in the Post, including another man who says Citi Bike made him 20 minutes late for his job in advertising (which in the advertising world is generally considered “on time”). It’s unclear why the largest bike share system in the nation wasn’t functioning without any flaws on its second day of operation, but it goes without saying that all the docking stations should immediately be doused in kerosene and set ablaze.
