Back in 2003, Metro released a series of trading cards called "Metro Manners". My friend and former colleague Irving found them while cleaning out a cubicle a few months ago. Some of the messages are hilarious. My favorites include the following:

  • Booming Beats Boy: Music makes us feel alive, but you must wear headphones to enjoy your tunes while riding Metro.
  • Always Late Nate: Rushing to catch a bus or train isn't safe. Take it slow, and watch out for other passengers as you board.
  • Sadie Snake Charmer: Pets are great, but not on Metro. Animals are not allowed on buses or trains.
