The reaction to the news that Metro is planning on closing several stops, including DCA, along the Blue and Yellow lines this coming holiday weekend, was, well, not particularly well received.
Getting in or out on Friday might not be that bad, as the stations won't close until 9:30 p.m., but for Monday, return day, we predict a suckathon.
Cabbies are probably the only people in town who support this decision.
Here are some representative highlights from Twitter. It would be impossible to post them all.
hostagehoosier this just in #wmata makes another retarded decision.
DChi606 Son of a bitch. I'm back into DCA on Monday. What a bunch of IDIOTS! #epicfail
AlwaysAPeach Wow metro is really ridiculous... who closes over Labor Day weekend at the airport stop? #metro #FAIL
ScottGentzen Hey. It's better than doing it for Thanksgiving weekend.
alexlundryWhat an astonishingly TERRIBLE idea
ConvertSpndthft Seriously, stuck now that #Wmata is closing over the weekend. What idiot is in charge over there? Flying in Saturday.
suz429 @Space_Fan no kidding... not enough to close 3 stops, but they pick the most inconvenient ones to close on a holiday weekend. #fail #WMATA
map408psu @mikemadden Makes no sense. WMATA says it's been planned far in advance but I'm pretty sure Labor Day was planned even further in advance...
the_dp Metro is closing the National Airport station during Labor Day weekend? Maybe we should fire Catoe. #WMATA FAIL
xantha WMATA, you are DUMB. Closing the airport metro station on a HOLIDAY weekend?! IDIOTS.
DCDivaAbeer Brilliant idea! (sarcasm drip drip)
andywhitedc Catoe's annual salary: 300k. His housing allowance: 60k. Closing DCA on Labor Day: Priceless. #wmata #metrofail #fuckcatoe
pneedleman RT @ashleydc It has been a while since WMATA did something stupid, oh wait they are closing the DCA on labor day wknd!
NatNatinDC Metro closing National Airport stop over Labor Day weekend is the dumbest thing that I've heard in a long, long time #wmata #metrosucks

bfpetrillo #wmata epic fail for closing the National Airport station on Labor Day weekend. What part of major travel holiday don't you understand?
tntsandy That has to be a joke, right?! #wmata
jdar @haynie agree. that's barely justifiable even if the whole thing is an underground hindenburg. #wmata
jakemcintyre WTF? RT @bradbaumn RT @cksieloff: srsly question competence of Metro. are they just evil? WTF!!! WHOTF RUNS #WMATA?
urbanbohemian Also... #wmata can't proofread: "Ronald Regan"? Really? (to their credit, it only appears once)
metro_man iMetro UPDATE WMATA: We Must Aggravate Travelers Again: Metro is truly living up to it's reputation..
ToddThurman @MichelleOddis wow. That is a stupid move. That's even stupid for WMATA #metrosucks
