Leaders in ministry of railways of Central government, you, can get online everyday. You can get what you want. But we can't. We still struggle for enough food everyday.

In the past, we could buy tickets if we came to station as early as possible. It relies on the physical work. So, I always came to stand in line before dawn. But now online booking system came out and is too complicated for us. It is not practical for us. Actually, it is really unfair. The qualification of our buying a ticket is canceled. You would say, "It's very easy. You can learn to use computer!" Do we, working from day to night, have leisure time to study computer? Do we have enough money to buy a computer?

I only went back home every two year after I came to Wenzhou more than decade ago. It is really painful to buy a ticket in spring festivals. Last year, I didn't go back home. I don't have any family member in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province. I could only hear my family members’ voices through phone call in the Chinese New Year Eve. This year, I really wanna go back home. My wife has gone back home one month in advance because we were afraid that we couldn't have the opportunity to buy a ticket. My more than 60-year-old father and mother often asked me, "When could I come back?"

My daughter is 6 years old. I haven't seen her for a long time. I don't know what height she is. I don't know how many words she knows. The train ticket is RMB 190 Yuan while the bus ticket is RMB 560 Yuan. I don't wanna take bus. The bus ticket is too expensive, several hundred Yuan more. I don't have enough money and seldom buy stuff for my daughter. How good if we can save this bus ticket money for my daughter.

At this time of every year, it is a torture for us, migrant workers, to stand in lines for buying railway tickets. This year, we dream of such torture, but disappeared.
