Metro - boulot - motto

Si vous croyez que vous êtes les seuls à courber l'échine le lundi matin en allant au travail, un petit malin aura trouvé le moyen de vous faire sourire, du moins si vous prenez le metro du coté de Times Square ... enfin, si bien entendu, la courbure de l'échine ne vous empêche pas de pointer le bout de votre nez en l'air! Ci dessous, un morceau d'une oeuvre d'art que j'aime bien, même si incomplete dans mes photos

The IRT platforms have been connected to each other as a transfer station as the lines opened: first between the 42nd Street Shuttle and the Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line in 1918, then the transfer was incorporated with the Flushing Line in 1927. The free transfer between the IRT and BMT was added on July 1, 1948.[10] The block-long passageway that runs west to the 42nd Street – Port Authority Bus Terminal station on the IND Eighth Avenue Line was added within fare control in the mid-1980s. Since 1991, this passageway has contained a piece of public art inspired by the Burma-Shave ads; Norman B. Colp's The Commuter's Lament, or A Close Shave consists of a series of signs attached to the roof of the passageway, reading:
Overslept,
So tired.
If late,
Get fired.
Why bother?
Why the pain?
Just go home
Do it again.
with the last panel being a picture of a bed. The panels were part of an art project that was supposed to last only one year, but was never removed
