Parting Shot: Complete the Tweet VIII

Folks, this has been a popular item, but we're going to give it a rest for at least a little while since Metro's tweets are usually cut off at more or less the same places, making many of the omissions repetitive.

So have at it with your best parting shot at Metro's less-than-stellar tweeting on this softball from Sept. 20.
metroopensdoors Yellow Line: Trains are sharing the same track between Mt. Vernon Sq. and Pentagon City stations due to scheduled track maintenance. Expect
Previous Complete the Tweets: here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

We'd love to hear your suggestions for something to fill Complete the Tweet's shoes!

Yellow Line: Trains are sharing the same track between Mt. Vernon Sq. and Pentagon City stations due to scheduled track maintenance. Expectations should be kept low to avoid further disappointment in our crappy service.

Expect us to have never fixed the 140-character problem, causing "Complete the Tweet" to throw up its hands in frustration.


(Honestly I thought CTT would only last a few weeks until Metro figured out how to solve the problem!)

our tweet API to be written in a new language that does not have a string truncation function.

Expectant mothers should not assume anyone will be offering their seats.

us to blame you for the problems- after all, we wouldn't have to fix the tracks if you all didn't ride the trains. You customers are SO inconsiderate.

Expect the worst, hope for the best. On second thought, expect the worst.

Expect delays from further sharing between: races, grumpy neighbors, Iran, DC Public Schools, North Korea, the "haves", Halliburton, Jim Graham, the "have nots", toddlers, motorists, cyclists...

rude passenger behavior to ensue.

us to keep getting worse and worse, the whole while blaming it on a lack of money. And don't worry, if we ever do get dedicated funding expect us to fritter that away too.

Expect no mercy. Thank you for riding Metro!

Yellow Line: Trains are sharing the same track between Mt. Vernon Sq. and Pentagon City stations due to scheduled track maintenance. Expect the very least when we say we care: flowers, perhaps, but more likely just a card.

to hear the "Is that your bag?" and "First time riding Metro?" announcements at least 59 times in every station you're waiting in on the Yellow Line.
