I left early today for work … and as soon as I get to the Red Line platform at Fort Totten, I hear, “Attention Red Line customers — expect delays in both directions because of a switching problem at the Cleveland Park station.” Fannnnnnntastic. I only made it to Metro Center before I had to get off for the quiet refuge of the Blue/Orange because the angry guy beside me on the Red had a stand alone ‘stache and dark sunglasses and every time we’d sit at the platform (hence the “expected delay”) he’s start huffing and yelling to me, well, I guess anybody, “I don’t know why this F$@*ING SYSTEM can’t get it right!!!!!!”
Yeah, buddy, I get your frustration. But you were scary. So I had to leave. I didn’t want to be front-page news today.
I’ve been dealing with a headache most of the day. I just thought I’d share that with the group.
In other news, according to a handy quiz I took on the Internets, I’m living in the wrong city. At FindYourSpot.com, you can take a handy little quiz based on preferences about climate, housing, crime, stuff to do, etc., and it’ll tell you where you’d be happiest. My winner?
That’s right, boys and girls. Oakland, Calif. As in “Oaktown.” As in “East Bay.” As in “right the hell across the water from San Francisco.” As in “TELL HER WHAT SHE’S WON, BOB!!”
This pleases me. Almost as much as an Amy Fisher movie marathon.
Also coming up in tonight’s report — a weekend perhaps spend IN Maryland rather than ON the road? Could it be true? Tune in at 11.
