People tend to check in during these times:
Love the metro...
Get used to "Single Tracking."
If your fare card is not working, get out of the way.
Actually the longest escalator on the Red Line is at the Wheaton Station with more than 370 steps and yet neither has taken a life. @imateomorris
Go all the way to the platform elevator if you're going to gallery place. It'll drop you off right at the transfer point and the arena entrance. Also, metro blows and its never on time.
I swear WMATA's longest escalator is here...an it's almost always broken.
Doors open on the left.
You should really check out dealchicken.com. It doesn't make escalators work but it does save you money.
The third door of the third car headed to Shady Grove (from downtown) will let you off at the foot of the escalators!
Make a good impression and leave the rest behind
The long escalators are frequently broken. Ask the newspaper distributors if they're working.
The Metro licks balls!
Never on schedule!
If a crazy person yells at you on the metro make sure to yell back to show your dominance.
If you're heading toward Glenmont after 8 pm, you're gonna be waiting for at least half an hour, no matter what the ETA is. Bring an ipod or a book or a razor to slit your wrists with.
