Bitchin’ about another redline delay?

http://www.flickr.com/photos/gregmce According to Tanya there was a significant delay on the redline last night at the Farragut North Station. Were you standing around bitchin’ about it with other metro riders who were delayed in their evening commute? Perhaps you should read Tanya’s account and think better of the bitchin’ next time.

All the passengers remained on the car as this was happening, but a station announcment finally said that the car would be evacuated. All further travel on this line would be halted and redirected to the other side of the station. A mass sigh was let out as people began filing out of the car, not before taking one last look at the gentleman who just had the seizure.

How many people would have cared enough to stay to be sure that this gentleman was okay? My guess is not too many people at all. Kudos to Tanya for being a concerned Metro rider

    That’s fucked up, the way people walk right by situations like this or else stand around and gawk. I have seen this too many times, people thinking it’s not their business and so they don’t do anything.

    It’s good some people like Tanya are out there.

    While I agree that people should step up to the plate when there’s a need, I don’t think we should condemn people for keeping their distance. The interests of someone having a seizure or heart attack are NOT helped by a swell of people keeping folks who are ACTUALLY helping from doing what needs to be done….
