  • Great day to be working from home 🙂

  • OMG WHY IS METRO SO BAD? we give them all this money. they keep raising fares. and why? they never fricking improve. *screams*

  • And the escalator at Woodley was down, leading to long lines for the elevator.

  • A green line train went went out of service around 6:30 am at Navy Yard. Fortunately, another came within a few minutes. How is it that a train goes out of service and once everyone has cleared out the doors close and it takes off? I suppose there’s a difference in out of service and disabled. Good old metro.

  • So in other words, it’s Wednesday.

  • Fare readers and escalators broken at Columbia Heights station. HUGE lines to get inside.

  • Not to mention that ALL escalators at woodley park were out so everyone had to use the elevator. 2 block line at 8 am. Nightmare.

      Why weren’t they letting people walk down?? (“Escalator temporarily stairs, sorry for the convenience,” etc….)
