    I haven’t contacted Bill Starrels about the Cupcake line, and I hate to complain about something like this, but the annoying part of it is that this problem is so solveable and yet Cupcake can’t be bothered to lift a finger.

    I called Cupcake to tell them that, while walking my 22-month-old to the library, I spent a couple minutes asking customers to step aside so we could get through, while a couple customers in line yelled at us, “Who do you think you are?”. The Cupcake employee apologized, but said there’s nothing she could do. I asked her to post a sign on the door telling people to stand against the wall, and to step outside every 15-30 minutes to ask people to stand against they wall, and she said they would.

    And they haven’t done either thing. That’s what is annoying. I’m happy for their success, and for more business in Georgetown, but they need to do the easy stuff to get along with neighbors.

    My office is in that building and I walk down that street most days. It was already a disastrous intersection. The timing of the left turn from M to 33rd seems fine, except that on most cycles, one or two drivers race through, blocking Westbound M Street traffic, nearly hitting pedestrians trying to cross, and generally ignoring peoples’ well-being. The pedestrians, anxious to cross and not realizing there is a turn arrow, often jump into the intersection just as the turn lane starts to go. Add in, now, 100s of tourists disoriented by the heat and the city, and 100s crowding the sidewalk (requiring anyone to cross to the other side or walk in the street), it’s a disaster waiting to happen.
