The Mysterious Metro Emoticon
What is the subliminal message Metro is trying to convey here in its email and text messages? Is this
a typo or is it a previously unknown Emoticon? If it is a typo why does it appear over and over again in communications over the past few weeks?
From a message sent several times Monday concerning the derailment on the Orange Line:
ID 44490) Disruption at Court House. (Trains are sharing a track between Clarendon and Foggy Bottom due to a derailed train outside Court House station. Shuttle bus service has been established. Orange Line customers should seek an alternate form of travel.).
It certainly isn't a smile :-) or a wink ;-)
So what do you think is the emotional content Metro is trying to convey with "Orange Line customers should seek an alternate form of travel.). ?"
