In a weekly series on WZLX.com, we examine the many crazy things we see on the MBTA all the time – and the life lessons we take from it.

Another week, another seven days filled with annoyance, disgust and frustration with the MBTA.

Our favorite public transportation service we love to hate didn’t offer up much news in the past seven days, although a man accused of sexual assault at Haymarket is set to be charged. So, that’s good, we guess?

Nothing we learn from the T every week is shocking anymore. But riders continue to roll out gems on Twitter that still have us learning new things every day. Here’s the best of what we learned last week.

You don’t need to actually ride the T to fall victim to them.

Nobody who makes the train early is ever busy with anything.

The T’s air ventilation system has only two settings: blazing hot and freezing cold.

That time the T closed the doors on you at the exact last moment? That was a cold, calculated move.

The T doesn’t want you to be late for work. It just wants to give you less time to work so you work harder.

The T just misplaces cars sometimes, kind of like how we lose our car keys.

The MBTA only deals in extremes.

We now know why the T gets in accidents sometimes…

The T is public transportation, but for whatever reason smells like a public restroom.

It comes with the territory for the T to brush up against crime every now and then.

Weather unbearably cold? Blame the T.
