Rider Hall of Shame: Everybody Cut, Everybody Cut

@KatrinaMarie8 WTF??? only on #wmata http://twitpic.com/18fapv

From Jared: I got on the Red Line at Medical Center around 9:45 this morning. It must have been cold for the poor bicyclist sitting across from me was rubbing his feet while reading the Express (nice multi-tasking), at first in the sock.

But then to my horror and everyone around him, he peels off his sock and starts rubbing his foot, full on fingers in toes. I can appreciate that you're cold, but the Metro is public transit, not your personal locker room jerk.



I been working so hard
I'm punching my card
Eight hours. For what?
Oh, tell me what I got

I get this feeling
That Metro's just holding me down
I'll hit the ceiling
Or else I'll tear up this town

Tonight I gotta cut

(Chorus)
Loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
Pull me offa my knees
Jack, get back
C'mon before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

You're playing so cool
Obeying every rule
Dig way down in your heart
You're burning, yearning for some

Somebody to tell you
That life ain't passing you by
I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try
You can fly if you'd only cut

(Chorus)
Loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Oohwee, Marie
Shake it, shake it for me
Oh Milo
C'mon C'mon let's go
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

FIRST - We got to turn you around
SECOND - You put your feet on the ground
THIRD - Now take a hold of your soul
FOUR - Whooooooooa, I'm turning it loose,

(Chorus)
footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
Pull me offa my knees
Jack, get back

C'mon before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

I sent one in a few weeks ago. Biker rubbing his tootsies because they were cold. Then he got up and grabbed a pole on his way out the door. Jerk.

Yeah, that's just really gross. I really, really don't understand a lot of the people out there.

Sometimes I think I am the crazy one.

I dont mind this if they are wearing flip-flops during the summer and put them off for a second

But the entire time now during the cold weather?

I mean, the homeless have freakin shoes

On a positive note, whatever they use to clean the carpets that gives all Metro cars the eau de pette shoppe smell, might just burn off any stubborn corns or bunyons.

For me, no one is perfect! Who has the most the perfect feet! Nobody! I would love to see more bare feet in the metro! :) Let do it!

Get some Vibram Five Fingers that will sort that problem out

Ok, totally understand it was a tough winter and everyone's jonesing for warmer weather, but this "barefoot movement" taking place on Metro lately is just sickening! Recently saw a girl back her butt up against the pole (BARF!) then proceed to take off both her socks in front of everyone, then stick her feet back in her shoes. Some people's parents didn't do their job apparently, because I've seen a couple more similar occurrences in as many weeks. I don't care if you're just really into your feet or whatever, but no one else is! No need for bare feet on the train, so PLEASE stop it already people!!
