~Yesterday at 6pm, two of the escalator were down at the Dupont South Metro entrance. Again. This was the third straight day that at least two of the three escalator were down. At least Metro listened to my suggestion to have the one working escalator go up instead of down. When all three were out on Tuesday, there was a huge back-up as old people had to stop halfway up to rest. You have to love any system of public transportation that could lead to a massive heart attack.
~After returning home to change, I planned on taking the Friendship Heights Metro for a night out on the town. I needed to stop at an ATM so I planned on walking the extra block to the Western Avenue entrance. Naturally, that option wasn't available to me. The entire entrance had been closed due to a fire. I have lost track of the Metro fires that have occurred in the past few weeks. There have been a lot.
~Special props to the commuters this morning who closed the elevator doors on a lady in a wheelchair. You know, the elevators that are designed especially for people who can't fucking walk. I don't care how full the elevator is or how late you are. If you can walk, get the fuck out. A full elevator of people and every single person refused to delay their commute for 90 seconds for the exact person the elevator was designed for. I forget sometimes that as much as I hate the DC Metro, I hate the DC people with equal vitriol. I bet one of those douche nozzles was wearing a fucking lanyard.
