$30 for someone else’s trumpet

trumpet%20case.jpg I was taking SEPTA to get to an 8:00 flight after work on Friday, but right as I was making the switch from subway to regional rail at Market East, they evacuated the station. Everyone had to leave; it was pretty dramatic.

I ended up taking a taxi rather than waiting to see what panned out (thus the $30), but I read the next day that the culprit was an abandoned trumpet case that they had to call the hazmat team in to search. It turned out it actually did have a trumpet inside, but it took them an hour to figure that out, so it’s a good thing I hopped the taxi.
