My office is at the corner of 15th and I Streets NW, which makes it just about smack in the middle of the McPherson Square Metro Station. The Vermont Avenue exit is one block to the west, the 14th Street exit one block to the east.
My question to you: Which exit should I use?
Logic says it doesn’t matter which one. They are both equal distant and as I’m catching a train, neither will give me any physical advantage in departure or arrival time. Yet still I find myself going to the station in the direction of travel. Vermont Avenue if I’m heading to NoVA or 14th Street if I’m headed to Capitol Hill.
Does it matter?
