If you’re riding the Washington Metro subway, stand on the right side of the escalator and walk on the
right left. Yes, we know you don’t have subways from wherever you’re from, but surely common sense and good manners aren’t dead in the Outer Provinces. When your herd stands two abreast on the escalators, you slow down the system for everyone behind you and you will be asked curtly to move your persons. Probably by me.
Oh, and the FBI and CIA t-shirts you buy make you look stupid.
I can’t help complaining. I’ve just watched the Helsinki Complaint Choir: a brilliant piece of public performance. Such choirs are spreading across the gloomy, cold Northern reaches, but the Finns started the phenomenon.
Oh, locals: don’t eat in the subway. It’s against the law or doesn’t that apply to you?
