So the Kleiner is commuting from the Kleinette's Mt. P pad, from Columbia Heights to Pentagon City. So, of course, the Branch Ave. train breaks down at Shaw Howard. And of course the next Branch Ave. train is two cars shorter so the Kleiner can't even get on. And if course the NEXT train closes its doors while folks are still boarding and there's still room, so the Kleiner is nearly dismembered. And so the Kleiner has to wait 25min to take a Green line train ONE STOP so he can switch to the Yellow line so he can get to work, woefully late and profoundly irritable.
Metro, I love you, but you're bringing me down.
