iPhone Metro Times app contest: The Touching part

Find a Metro DC

Not that kind of touching you perv. The most adorable, or sweet, or heart-warming.

Just like yesterday, we’re going to give away a code for a free copy of JRBApps’ Find a Metro DC [iTunes] app. It’ll let you see the times projected for when the next train comes in as well as check NextBus and plan trips. In 24 hours we’ll close the contest and pick one winner at random. Friday we’ll give away three more codes – one more random selection as well as the two winning story entries.

Also like yesterday you can just post a comment saying something like “gimmie” so long as you enter a valid email address for us to contact you if you win. That puts your name in the hat for the day’s random drawing as well as Friday’s random pick.

If you want a shot at the “bonus round” then just tell us your touching mass transit story.

Have at it, and remember: not that kind of touching. I’d say Katie’s story yesterday took care of that…

UPDATE: Well Norm, guess your life is going to get easier then – you’re the winner. Random.org, asked to choose a number between 1 and 14, spat out number three. We’ll email you the code and thr rest of you can check back tomorrow afternoon to see who our remaining winners are.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. My most touching story is when, on a packed redline, rush hour train, a woman who came on who was using a cane to walk (she looked really unstable) got on our car. We all shoved together even closer for her to get through. Honestly, I could barely move at the stop before, but we managed to let her get to a seat.
    I’ve only been here since April, so I’m hoping for another, more interesting, touching story.

  2. Yesterday on my ride home, we got to a station where a passenger sitting nearby me realized a bit too late that this was his stop. To my surprise, he placed his arm in the closing door and left it there. 10 seconds later the door opened and he popped out.

    Seriously. It worked. Ballsy, but I’ll have to keep that one in mind.
