As if to celebrate that fact, a couple Metro trains bumped uglies yesterday:
Turns out one train lost it brakes, and simply rolled backward into the station. (Safety systems designed to prevent such an occurrence didn't activate.)
Meanwhile, Metro CEO Richard White gave us the understatement of the forever:
"Lately we've got a serious perception and credibility problem about what it is we're doing and how hard we're working on behalf of our customers," White said.Oh my God... they're finally starting to admit their suckitude! Eat that, "Lisa Farbstein"!
The weirdest thing about this story is that it kept getting worse as the day went on; the first reports talked about two trains "bumping" and injuring four people. Obviously it was a lot worse than that, and scary too; the driver yelled for everyone to "get off the train, run if you have to!"
Twenty people were hurt, and travel's obviously going to be delayed all week. Good times!
