Last night, after making the mistake of going to the Trader Joe’s in Foggy Bottom (and waiting in line for 45 minutes), I had to make my way back to Eckington. After several bus plans fell through because they never showed up, my phone died and I decided to make my way to Chinatown to take the P6. Conditions were awful and at 7th & H a man fell in the middle of the street – I helped him up only to have him say a few pervy things to me. Classic DC.
All of this made for a really crappy and cold night. Then my grocery bag ripped at the bus stop that I ended up standing at for 30 minutes. I want to say THANK YOU to a man named Roger who ran across the street to Walgreens to get me a few plastic bags that I could put my groceries in. This was one of my worst DC commutes (it took 2.5 hours to go about 4 miles), but he reminded me that some people are really good. Roger – if you see this thank you from the bottom of my heart – I will pay it forward.”
