You gotta love DC. Especially at night. Let me set the scene. Me and my cousin are Driving down Georgia ave 1am thanksgiving day. I'm about to hit this corner and this dude walking across the street flags me down. I stop (why I don't know) he asks me what way is quicker to walk to MD. again it's 1 am and we are on the corner of Georgia and new Hampshire ave. Although I was puzzled by the question thinking that it's a good 2 hour walk to MD from there I told him he could continue up Georgia and hit Montgomery county. He then said he was going to Gaithersburg and had just been let out of prison. Apparently DC police released him downtown 2 hours ago with no money, metro card or bus fare. He said they were supposed to give him a free ride on the train but that didn't happen. Now I'm fully regretting stopping as it's 1am and I'm talking to a dude fresh from lockup who he needs a car... lol Long story short I give him some change for the bus and he walks away. BTW I had no idea the bus runs so late in the city. I saw buses full of bammas all night.
