I put it in 2 garbage bags and placed it in the luggage area on the Amtrak train. Then I sat in a seat right in front of the luggage area next to an incredibly hot but uninterested hipster boy, and fell asleep (almost not waking up for Penn Station, fabulous!) I grabbed my 2 bags and the double bagged poster and jetted off the train, anticipating a ridiculous taxi line because of the rain (I was right.) As I'm hurrying, I hear a clinking sound from inside the garbage bag...because someone fucking thought it was a garbage receptacle and dumped potato chip wrappers and Diet Pepsi cans into it. What the fuck people? There are clearly marked trash cans all over the Amtrak trains, and the conductor came through the aisles at least twice (probably more while I was sleeping) asking if anyone had trash. You really thought the flat looking black bag leaned up against all the other luggage in the luggage area was an appropriate place to throw your trash? Ugh.
My poster board is mostly fine, kind of soggy and sticky on the one edge but it's okay...but really, that was such an unnecessary addition to my day.
