Every time I visit my mom, she asks which train I took: the regular train (New Jersey Transit) or the fancy one (Amtrak), and every time I tell her the latter, I know she pictures me with big sunglasses, hatboxes full of purchases from posh shops, and a butler. What she doesn't realize is that the shorter ride on the nicer train, the quiet car, and the comfortable seats are worth shelling out more money for, even though it may mean I can't go out to lunch with friends the next three times they ask me. Everything's a tradeoff indeed.
