Metro PDA

August 3, 2007 at 10:37 am 4 comments

Each morning I have the rare opportunity to get a true peek into the lives of my fellow citizens at the metro “Kiss and Ride” area, where train riders are dropped at the curb by their significant other. If I were quicker on the draw with my cell phone camera like another patron of IRF, I could share with you what I saw yesterday morning behind the wheel. This situation marked the end of my patience with Kiss and Ride offenders.

First of all, it’s always the people you least suspect that are going to engage in borderline uncomfortable displays of public affection while bidding their spouse/partner/friendly associate adieu for a long eight hours. Yesterday it was a tall, gangly, pale red head with an ever so slight pony tail. His girlfriend was mousy with very large spectacles. They looked like avid Lord of the Ring devotees. In the Altima, they leaned in over and over and over again, saying sweet nothings in between each lusty smooch. This was forced viewing because they were parked directly in front of my car and I was stuck watching their early morning expressions of love. Average kiss time at my metro stop is .5 seconds. They went on for over a minute.

After tearing himself from the passenger seat, Minnie rolled down the window to shout, “I love you,” which caused Lover Boy to tap the top of the car like a drum and give her a thumbs-up sign. It’s uncommon for people to violate the unspoken Kiss and Ride rules and these people may have just been visiting the area. (He certainly wasn’t going to a corporate or government job dressed in a Hane’s t-shirt and cargo shorts). However, it was still disrespectful to everyone within a 50-yard radius and next time I hope to send my train passenger to the car ahead to tell any violators that his son can’t tolerate such lewdness.

    You mean to tell me, that you witnessed this debaucle for over 60 seconds and still you were not quick enough on the draw to snap a quick cell phone pic?
    That is utter Bullroar!

    A thumbs up as an answer to “I love you?”

    Who is he, the Fonz?

    Careful, JL. I happen to know that a gangly, pale redhead is a frequent peruser of this blog.

    I concur with your general point, however. The monstrous are always more likely to engage in public displays of affliction. Sometimes it’s rather like watching “Nova”—one of those episodes on the mating of manatees with the weird music.

    I kept waiting to hear about the heavy petting.

    What a letdown!
