Change is always difficult. This is especially true when the change involves something you've grown accustomed to -- something you've grown fond of, and grown to depend on -- being ripped away. Such is the case this week for many King County Metro bus riders.

And as seen on Reddit recently, not everyone is thrilled with some of the changes recently instituted by King County Metro. In particular, one presumed Magnolia resident is downright irate ... so irate, in fact, that they whipped out a pencil (or perhaps a pen, upon closer inspection) and let their voice be heard.

User "droidrage" posted this photo to Reddit two days ago under the header "I'm not sure this is an effective way to communicate with King County Metro":

In case you had trouble reading that, the message says:

Magnolia has absolutely no Metro service between 9:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. As one of Seattle's largest and most isolated areas this is UNACCEPTABLE. Fuck you Metro.

As part of the package of changes instituted Sept. 29 - which included the elimination of the "Ride Free" zone -- Route 24, which services Magnolia, now stops running at 9:30 p.m. Magnolia's Route 31 was also impacted by the changes.

And, obviously, at least one person is really pissed off about it.
