I was walking home from the Greenbelt metro station on the College Park side, when a Metro Access shuttle pulled along side of me. The driver mumbled something out of his window at me and when I asked him to repeat it, I still couldn’t hear him. He finally yelled, “Can I call you sometime?” I gave him an incredulous look, held up my left hand and yelled, “I’m married.” He said okay and sped off. Does that pick-up tactic work on anyone? Let alone on tired, married commuters who just want to get home in the evenings?
