Welcome to DC ~ 2013-0626

2010 Union Station

Dear Tourists,

We see you. We know who you are.  It is easy to tell with your head tilted back trying to take it all in and your eyes wide with excitement.

We stop you from stepping off the curb when you think the walk light is for you but it is really for a small street you haven’t even noticed. We offer directions and suggestions willingly because we want you to enjoy DC as much as we do. We even defend you when others complain because you are standing on the left side of the metro stairs instead of the right. You do not know that the left side is for people walking the escalator stairs not people just riding up or down them.

However, it is so much easier to defend you and for you to enjoy yourselves in DC if you do not stop at the top or bottom of the escalator stairs.  People please!  We are used to walking around you, but we cannot do so if you are blocking our path at the tops and bottoms of the escalator stairs. Thank you.

Signed,

A weary commuter
