  1. These pre-recorded messages are annoying as hell! Get rid of them!! Especially the Spanish speaking lady that comes on 5,000 decibels louder than anything! It sounds like she is yelling at us! All of it is the last thing I want to hear when I get on the train at 4:30 in the morning and want to nap!
