@&*#%$

WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT, METRO!?! SERIOUSLY. I HAD TO GO TO THE FUCKING MEDICAL CENTER METRO TO CATCH A FUCKING TRAIN AND EVEN THEN IT WAS PACKED LIKE A TIN OF SARDINES.

THE TRIP FROM FREINDSHIP HEIGHTS TO DUPONT CIRCLE SHOULD NOT REQUIRE A THREE FUCKING MILE DETOUR INTO MOTHERFUCKING MARYLAND!!!

  1. Fuck Metro. I started driving a month ago and it is SO much better and faster. This is good because I knew that after one more week of riding Metro, I'd be flippng off the train operators when they pulled into the station. That probably would have gotten me arrested.

  2. Red Line was horrible today. It's like the fucking Great Chicago Fire with these morons. Lemme guess - did someone's copy of Express hit the third rail at Farragut North or some shit?

  5. I got to work at my government cube hell and forgot my name tag. I had to go back to my house to get it before the central cubicle commission would let me through the pearly gates. So I got the honor of riding metro 4 times already today!
    I f---ing hate this town so much!

  6. That's why I drive--from Virginia, bitches--even though I live less than one block from a subway station.

  7. I leave later in the morning. I catch the Red Line at the Silver Spring around 9:30 a.m. That way, I don't have to deal with the bull shit delays and crowds between 7:00-9:00 a.m. each day.

    Taking the Red Line from Glenmont/Silver Spring is a WHOLE different experience than riding on the other side of the Red Line. I feel really bad for the motherfuckers who take the Red Line from/to downtown DC up/from Shady Grove. When I catch the train home at Metro Center, I always notice that the Shady Grove/Grosvenor side of the platform is jam packed with commuters--even at 7:00 p.m. in the evening! Poor bastards. That's the price you pay for wanting to live in swanky communities such as: Bethesda-Chevy Chase/Rockville/Tenleytown/ Friendship Heights/VanNess and Cleveland Park.

  8. btw...the best Metro line is the Green Line. They always have the newest train cars. The trains are always on schedule. You don't hear about delays about the Green Line. And the trains are not crowded as the Red or Orange lines.

    Then again, Anacostia on one end and Greenbelt, MD on the other are not exactly desirable areas for residents. Maybe that's why the Green Line is never that crowded.

  9. I live on the Green line. It is fantastic and worth the risk of getting knifed. See also: the Red line between NY Ave. and Takoma.

    If you want to live on the Red line northwest of Metro Center, you deserve evey delay and pain-in-the-ass you have coming to you.

  10. Orange line from Metro Center to New Carrollton (and reverse) is always on time and rarely a sweaty balls kind of crowded. If it makes you so angry maybe you should think about moving. The area isn't as nice, but in my five years in residence I've never been stabbed, jacked, or sexually assualted. Well there was that one time that someone stole a hubcap off my ford focus...

  11. They can't even fix the escalators
    I highly doubt that the trains would
    get any better

  12. The metro is about as realible as Bush is well-articulated.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The green line? Anyone notice that even after they installed all those uber expensive yet highly stylish canopies...that the 13th station at U street still has a broken escalator?! awesome work, metro!

  14. So, when do you guys roll into work? Because at 9 this morning, there wasn't any issue.

    Not trying to be a dick, but curious about what actually was up with Metro because I apparently missed it completely.

  15. I got to the Metro at 8:38am and got to Dupont Circle at 9:12am.

  16. I walked into the Friendship Heights Metro at about 8:25 a.m. and was fucked in the ass by Metro until I exited Rosslyn at 9:15.

  17. New Carrollton at 8:10. Rolled smoothly into Metro Center at 8:45.

  18. I'd rather be stuck on the red line heading the wrong way than have to go to Fuckville New Carrollton 5 days a week. You poor soul. Move to the city.

  19. When will you people learn that D.C. is not "the city?" Living in Tenleytown with your old frat buddies doesn't constitute living in "the city." Get over yourself, tool. You'd last one day in a real city.

    ReplyDelete
  20. ahem, I've lived in Los Angeles = A REAL CITY!

    And you're right DC is not a real city but suburban MD and VA is total toolsville!

    ReplyDelete
  21. ah, the vitriol of the anonymous. soothes my brain.

    in any case, rusty, that's shitty - there's no way a trip from friendship to dupont (hey, we're metro route buddies) should take 40 minutes, especially since trains leaving at 9 got there around the same time as your train. how that is even logistically possible is beyond me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Get a bike, you fat-ass.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Rusty, I might have seen you pressed up against the window as I took the opposite train from Tenleytown to up to Rockville. Those empty trains offer a really nice view.

  24. "And you're right DC is not a real city but suburban MD and VA is total toolsville!"

    Oh, I totally agree with you -- but DC is total toolsville, too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Are some of these anon posters Metro employees or something??? Who the hell argues "you should move in closer to the city" or "I didnt see any delays."

  26. I Hate DC MoreMarch 09, 2007

    well DC is toolsville but a lot of us are stuck here because of our jobs. so we might as well bitch about it and metro and anything else we can claim sucks...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ok so New Carrollton may suck, but according to most of you "city" livin douchbags your metro rides also sucks. Complain all you want...but nobody likes a whiner. Get over it or get out!

  28. my plan is to move within a mile or two of my office and commute via rickshaw. sayonara, metro suckers.

  31. Again, I'd love to know who these retards are that think complaining about Metro is out-of-line?

    Our tax money and metro fare goes to a public service that is horrible and dangerous, and it CAN BE IMPROVED. It's not like Rusty is complaining about the weather which nobody has control of. This is a public service funded by public money controlled by public officials collecting a taxpayer salary. Would you tell a parent that they need to stop whining about thier child's public education standards just because "nobody likes a whiner???"
    How do you people survive in life??? Somebody call Charles Darwin!!

  33. perhaps if we had had those illustrius musicians around the stations playing their honkeytonk guitars you wouldnt be so angry rusty.

  34. No problems this morning around 8:00 am from Capitol South to Foggy Bottom -- even with two four-car trains in a row (one blue, one orange).

    Though I will admit I was a little confused about why they were running four-car trains at the height of rush hour.

  35. I got to the Metro Center platform at 12 am last night, and seeing that the platform was full, I assumed that a train was coming momentarily. Wrong! Because of the "single tracking", the train didn't come until 12:30 and it was jam packed. And then it stopped and started the whole way to White Flint-- it took a full hour to get to that station. It was absurd! So much for an early evening. F*#$ing metro.

  36. I am obviously a bit late in commenting to the MOM blog, but do you still plan on coming home in April? I taught you everything you know about music! Great writing and wit!
