I heard this morning’s commute described best by Chris Needham on Twitter, who wrote, “I’m pretty sure this is how “Falling Down” started.” DC summers are usually the province of easier commutes, but this morning’s increased road presence due to the Metro fare increase, and significant arterial delays due to accidents and road construction, meant what should have been a cakewalk was instead the equivalent of the fourth ring of hell.
We know that you guys work hard to be on time, so feel free to vent like crazy about that crazy jackass in the SUV that cut you off, or the guy who just had to squeeze into that spot in front of you, or the bus driver who passed you by because his bus was all full. Just let it out. We can’t have anyone going that crazy this early in the summer. So just breathe, DC, and let it all out.
