“Doors closing, *ding dong*”
Riding the Metro can be a frustrating experience. There’s no denying that. However, following a week in which I drove to work in the city from Takoma Park, MD practically every morning for a variety of reasons, I am actually looking forward to getting back on the train tomorrow.
Next train…8 minutes?!? During rush hour? No problem. Just don’t send me back out on 295 with my stick shift in bumper-to-bumper traffic. “We regret any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.” You’re welcome! Take your time! As long as I don’t have to navigate Dupont Circle EVER AGAIN.
Besides, the Metro is a much safer place to grap a quick cat nap before work. That is…if I can find a seat.
