I prefer to leave my longjohns on the metro, thank you very much.

On a red train at Metro Center towards Glenmont:

"This is Metro Center, doors opening on your left. Ladies and gentlemen, please be sure to take all personal items with you, including coats, sweaters, longjohns, gloves, mittens, scarves, earmuffs, ski masks, iPhones, BlackBerrys, cell phones, PDAs, laptops, backpacks, purses, books, magazines, newspapers, and yes, that means all paper products, with you when you exit the train.

I am a train operator, and I approve this message."

Same train, upon arriving at Glenmont:

"This train is now out of service. Y'all get off my train now."

I love it when the metro operators show a sense of humor like that. It's a great reminder that even the voice in the speaker system still comes from a human being.

the voice isn't always from a real human being. there's an automated voice thingy too.

Bryce meant that some operators are trying to bring life to their jobs and make what could be boring fun. There are some actual train operators who just don't give a damn about their jobs and who do sound like robots (pissed-off ones, at that).
