Welcome back my little friend

Yes, you, little brown one. It is so nice to see you back in Metrorail stations, small, squat, and silent. You do what you do without protest.

You take in my refuse, my trash, my waste without emotion, without care. And so you should.

WMATA spent $800,000 on buying you and your friends, bomb-proof trash cans that can hold my used Express or an express bomb.

Wait, my used Express should go in your friend, the newspaper recycle bin, the one exiled outside the station proper.

Oh well, do not fret, do not feel lonely. I still like you, I still use you. My little trashy friend.

    Glad to hear that these brown R2D2 look alikes are “security” friendly.

    People who aren’t supposed to be eating on the metro should find these handy. But the offenders offend further by leaving their trash on the train or on the platform – while bins emblazoned with the word “TRASH” sit underutilized just 5 feet away near the (Walk Left, Stand Right) escalators.

    Come people! Throw those half-drunken Wendy soda cups into the willing hungry mouths of a trashy friend.
