Longtime riders of Washington DC's Metro system
will recognize that Metro announcements rarely communicate this much specific information. Usually, the drivers come on and just tell us that they've been instructed to hold or that there's a train stopped ahead of us. So we're left to ponder for ourselves just why the fuck we've paid our hard earned dollars to be stuck in a tunnel.
Seriously, Metro would do itself a great service if they just told us what the fuck was going on. Transparency might engender some measure of sympathy. For instance, if we knew that the train ahead of us was stopped because someone puked their guts out, we would feel sorry for that poor passenger and maybe not direct our anger at the ineptness of the entire Metro system and fire off angry twitter messages declaring the system horribly fucked
So another mini contest for this strip. There are fourteen passengers besides Kane who are riding this train. If you can identify all fourteen, I'll send you a sketch of your favorite one of the fourteen. Send your answers to my email addy with the subject "Stuck Mini Contest." First correct answer wins!
