Metroverheard: P.I.

Summer vacation is coming to an end, which means a probable decrease in tourist conversations on the Metro like this one:

Tourist 1: So where do we get off?
Tourist 2: “Metro Central,” I think. It’s after Gallery Place. Is this it?
Tourist 1: I don’t think so. This is Gallery P.I.
Tourist 2: What’s “P.I.” stand for?
Tourist 1: No idea.
Me: *facepalm*

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
