Busriders Who Talk Too Loudly on Their Cellphone

Los Autobus

Second in our series of “Busriders Who Talk Too Loudly on Their Cellphone”, GM presents Woman Who Moved Here From LA. If you employ this woman, she’s not happy that you’re not paying for Blackberry, home Internet, and dinner at the office.  If you’re dating her, you might be the person that she has “trust issues with”. It’s not entirely clear because at some point she realized that she’s “on the bus…on the BUS…the BUS…AUTOBUS, estoy en la AUTOBUS!” so an ounce of awareness finally crept in, although not enough to get her to hang up.

GM admits this isn’t the most embarrassing cell phone blather he’s heard on the bus, but just let it serve as a reminder: if you feel like having a loud cell phone conversation on the D2, a transcript very well may end up here.

D2 to Remain the Same

The D2 Remains the Same

One more thing from Monday’s ANC meeting: Commissioner Ron Lewis announced that in response to ANC2E’s resolution, WMATA wrote to the commission announcing that they decided not to make any changes to the D2. This seemed to be the likely outcome after Glover Park and Georgetown let WMATA know of their objections, but it’s good to hear confirmation.

Busriders Who Talk Too Loudly On The Phone

In the first of an ongoing series, GM presents “Busriders Who Talk Too Loudly on their Cellphones”. Today we introduce, Blonde Guy Talking About Some Girl He’s Sort Of Dating. GM apologizes about the blurry photo (in the future he’ll steady his hand better) but if you recognize this man, and you’re dating him, the 6:45 D2 bus would like to inform you that he likes you but doesn’t want to commit because he’s probably moving back to the Midwest.

Next episode: someone else talking too loudly about really personal stuff who doesn’t realize everyone wishes he’d just shut up.

ANC Round Up: Apple Redux, Reuse, Recycle

If last month’s ANC seemed quick and efficient, this month was pretty much the exact opposite: slow and tortuous. In the end, not much happened, but any ANC agenda with the Apple Store on the agenda is significant in some way. Plus GM got a resolution passed! Find out more after the jump:

Obscure Blogger Effects Minor Change!

The D2 Remains the Same

GM was informed today that the ANC will address the D Bus study after he bugged them about it. It’s not clear whether they will adopt a resolution against the change to to the D2 (WMATA’s thinking about turning it into a cross-town route). But it may not be necessary. According to reader Brian, WMATA got an earful from a group of Glover Park residents angry about the proposed change. They are significantly more dependent on the D2 than Georgetown is. A decrease in service levels would affect them greatly, and probably put a lot of them back into cars. Apparently the WMATA rep left the Glover Parkers (Parkonians? Parkistanis?) with the impression that Metro would drop the proposal.

Let’s hope that ANC2E will weigh in and put it beyond doubt. Thanks goes to Commissioners Lewis, Starrels, and Eason for getting this on the agenda.
