A clever McSweeneys article this morning about underheard phrases in New York got the We Love DC Authors thinking: What are some quips that you just don’t hear enough in DC?
I proudly present, our attempts at #UnderheardInDC:
“You know, Chinatown really captures the spirit and history of a cultural neighborhood like any other city.”
“My cabbie tonight was so awesome! He spoke perfect English and I didn’t have to give him directions!”
“Getting tickets to tonight’s Wizards game was so hard.”
“All the parking meters are reasonably priced and in working order the majority of the time!”
“The HHS building fits so perfectly with the architectural character of downtown DC!”
“Waiting in line to get into a club is so worth it!”
“Wow, DC’s Metro is always on time, clean, and cheap – and the staff is so courteous!”
“My morning metro commute was so smooth. Everyone smelled nice, and I watched a teenage boy give up his seat to a pregnant woman.”
“You know, people seem to be standing on the left, but I’m ok with it because everyone has had a long day and this Rosslyn escalator is really long. I don’t need to push or give anyone a dirty look right now.”
Alright, readers, what else do you have? Comment it or tweet it with the #UnderheardInDC tag.
