Not a clear as I would like to have had photo, but look at the woman in the reddish tank top on the right.
I don’t know why the fuck I let my guard down….. Saw a bunch of emergency equipment nearby and during my break, went into the Metro Center station to see if this was abut Metro….again. It wasn’t.
While I was down there, the woman got my attention, showed me a paper metro fare card with too little value to get back in the Metro system so could I spare some change.
Gave her a dollar bill and then 2 hours later as I again descended in the station this time to board a train to take me back to my car, there she was as you see in the picture… still trying to get money to “get back on the Metro”….
Shit & fuck, that’s one of the oldest tricks these shiftless panhandlers use and I should have known damned well better to even give her the time of day! What is even more pissed off worthy is that I an others work for our money, we provide our various services and we are paid…give and take. Panhandlers are an affront to all of this.
So while you who read this may never make it to Washington, DC, if you do, forewarned is forearmed and your pocket change will thank you.
