Complete the Tweet II

Metro often ignores the 140-character limit on its tweets, which can lead to some pretty baffling messages. So let's help Metro out and complete the tweets. Use the comments to finish the thought on this gem from Monday, when there were more than a few cryptic tweets.
No Line: Due to mechanical difficulties, all the station's entrance escalators are out of service. The street elevator is operational. Shut

...shut your door and stay inside. You aren't going anywhere today.

...Shut down your computer later. You might as well stay at work until we get the mess cleared up.

Just give us your $4.35 and squeeze yourself in next to the sweaty tourist who got on the wrong train. Quit asking for Catoe's head, you're not going to get it.

...shuttle bus may or may not arrive and if they do, they're not worth it. Take a cab.

...Shut down your preconceived notions of reality. The escalators work if you believe they are stairs.

...Shutting your eyes and throwing yourself down said escalators is probably safer than continuing to ride Metro. Thank you for your patience.

No Line: Due to mechanical difficulties, all the station's entrance escalators are out of service. The street elevator is operational. Shut down of the entire metrorail system is imminent. Not that you'd notice the difference, but we enjoy sharing useless information that doesn't improve your situation. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for riding metrorail.

...Shut up about our incompetence. If you think you can do better why don't you build your own damn transit system.

...shut your eyes and imagine you're on a break. That's what we do whenever there's mechanical problems!

Shut-off valves for a/c, elevators and nearby water fountains have also been tripped. Thank you for riding Metro.
