My next job interview is in downtown DC and I need a plan for getting around. Normally I would drive my own car and just find a parking garage near the building. But I’m going to fly up and I think I can get by without the hassle of renting and parking a car. The DC Metroliner has great, regular service all throughout the Northern Virginia/DC/Suburban Maryland area. So if I find a good map and book a hotel near a Metro line, I’ll skip getting a car this trip, that will save a butt load of money right there. I just hope the weather isn’t too shitty for those two days that I’ll be dealing with public transportation.
One of the areas that I would be interested in living is the Washington DC/Maryland/Virginia area. It is a vital, dynamic, exciting place to live and work. It is close to all types of bodies of water, beautiful beaches and the Blue Ridge Mountains are fucking magnificent. There was a recent survey that states this area is the hottest area for young, affluent singles. So I decided to try a Maryland chat site and see if there was anyone interesting to talk to, and perhaps meet when I go for my job interview in Rockville, Maryland next week. Wish me luck, this could be just what I’ve been looking for.
My neighbor is so frustrated with his daughter that I would laugh with him but he’s not laughing. Knowing that her car’s battery was giving her trouble, she came to his house yesterday on her way to work to borrow his jumper cables. He has nice tools and a nice, well-kept garage and workshop. I am sure that the jumper cables he loaned her cost at least $60. They were the heavy gauge, heavy fucking duty cables – not those cheap ass ones you get at Wal Mart for $10. So he loans the jumper cables to her, in case she has trouble after work getting the car to start. But when she comes out to the car after work, she finds that the jumper cables have been stolen from her car and she had to call a tow truck to come help her.Not real clear on how she paid for the tow job.
Now, I want to know why the cables were not in the car trunk, out of sight. You just don’t leave something valuable just fucking lying out on the car seat or out in the open in that part of town. You are just asking for trouble if you do that. Plus, a reasonable person would lock the car doors. It’s not my problem, but I think the girl or her “Piece Of Shit” boyfriend took the jumper cables to a pawn shop and pawned them. It would be just the thing that a cock sucker like him would pull And now she is over there trying to get her daddy to buy a new car battery for her car today. Like I said, it would be funny as shit, but it really isn’t. I feel so bad for my neighbor – he’s in a lose-lose situation no matter what he does.
One thing this area is woefully lacking is high speed commuter trains, subway or monorail service to downtown. In fact, in the past of the lack of commuter services is why so many high profile companies are choosing to locate south of the city, in the Cool Springs area, instead of downtown. Cool Springs has a variety of restaurants and fast food options for the thousands of those suit and tie wearing cocksuckers who report to the high rise offices each day. There is plenty of free parking for all, and there are many back roads and surface roads to give people alternate ways to drive in to work each morning
when if the Interstate gets jammed up.
Personally, I would like to see a monorail built from Franklin to the Airport, with a spur to the downtown and uptown districts and a spur to the East ending just past Lebanon. The monorails could be built in the middle or alongside most of the existing highways and would be a fast, easy as shit commute, a fast and easy way to access the airport for the tens of thousands of executives and corporate people who need to fly. Worst case, the least they could do is add a few more trains to the existing tracks and help with the highway congestion each morning. But that is not the real answer to our area’s transit issues. We can talk about that another time. I’ll have to a bit of research and see some numbers before saying anything.
