Spotted: Food and Drink

Favorite part of my morning commute: Hill Intern gets on blue line train this morning with large, flimsy coffee cup and huge donut. She sits down next to me and starts to eat her breakfast, wiping crumbs EVERYWHERE.

Another commuter politely explains, "Excuse me, but just so you know, food and drinks are prohibited on the Metro system."

Intern glares and huffs.

At the next stop, I stand up and tell her that this is my stop, at which point she spazzes out and drops her coffee cup, spilling everywhere.

Other commuter, less politely than before then finishes the etiquette lesson: "And that's why food and drinks aren't allowed. Well done. Really Stellar."
