So, I finally heard the new Metro chimes. I know I'm the last one.
Final verdict: Ehhhh.
I don't really like the "boop" sounds because my brain isn't used to them yet. And the new voice seems weirdly human. I keep looking over my shoulder expecting a stern woman telling me to "stand back" since the doors are about to close. But, overall, hearing the new "door closing" announcement filled me with a profound sense of "whatever." I know I'll get used to it.
Also of note: It's been three straight weekdays with a Red Line Metro delay. Metro is so incompetent that I now have to set my alarm clock 10 minutes earlier just in case the trains switch to one track.
If the Metro messes up again tomorrow, they can expect a strongly worded letter.
That'll show 'em.
