We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for riding the Metro.

We appoligize for any inconvience this may cause, but we really don't care, so don't bother any Metro employees. Thank you for riding Metro rail, we appreciate your business.

...their sex appeal to attract the attention of passing truck drivers in the vague hope of getting a quick ride to work.
