Complete the Tweet V

** Complete the Tweet mentioned in the Post **

Metro often ignores the 140-character limit on its tweets, and it provides some serious softballs for teeing off on them.

...There is not word yet as to which station, but we thought we'd scare the bejesus out of you anyway.

Thank you for not riding Metro. In other words, just walk.

...To compensate for this abrubt loss of power, we have arranged for Chinese rickshaw drivers to transport Metro riders in and out of the station. Please tip them appropriately.

There's an even better incomplete on their Twitter page right now, though...

No Line: Beginning this evening at 9:30 pm, Red line trains will not operate between Brookland, Fort Totten, and Takoma stations while Metro...

...works to close the space-time discontinuity which has developed as is currently resulting in trains being transported to Alpha Centauri.

...There will, however, be no shuttle service. Good luck getting... wherever it is you wanted to go.

Two protons expelled at each coupling site creates the mode of force, the embryo becomes a fish that we don't enter until a plate, we're here to experience evolve the little toe, atrophy, don't ask me how I'll be dead in a thousand light years, thank you, thank you. End of line.

Those customers wishing to enter the station anyhow are advised to bring candles, marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate, and roasting sticks. Metro will provide fire barrels for customers' use in preparing Smores for their refreshment while they wait for power and train service to be restored to the station.

I posted (yet again) to them today on twitter about it. You would think someone there would notice the character count when you enter something on twitter's site or that their tweets were always getting truncated (quality control? whazat?). Who puts important info at the end (like station name) while typing something like a list of what things do not work because of a power outage anyway?

This utterly useless message is brought to you by the same people who give you "Ms. Gibson," the finger-lickin' bus driver, the kidnapping and false imprisoning bus driver, the law-breaking cell phone using bus driver, screwdriver-thrusting-and-twisting-mechanics, use-of-all-images-and-likenesses-prohibited station managers. Jog on, loser, because we just don't care. Scram before I flip you off, and don't bother asking me which bus to take!
