Monthly unlimited renewal day was today for SUBWAYblogger. That’s never a fun day. It’s early in the morning, clearly there has not been enough coffee in the picture, then wham! $76 right out of your pocket. That’s not a fun way to start the day.
It was funny and annoying at the same time this morning. Apparently, SUBWAYblogger’s MetroCard renewal day was shared by many.
Lots of riders went up to the turnstile only to get hit with the dreaded “Insufficient Fare” notice. The funny ones are the people who don’t pay attention as they swipe their cards.
You’ve all seen them. They swipe without even slowing down. Then they ram into the bar when it doesn’t rotate. This usually happens to iPod people because they can’t hear the beep. One woman almost did a complete flip over the bar!
Anyway, lots of people were denied at that gate, and needed to head for the machines.
My stop has a lot of machines, but people still act like it is a test or something. As if they will be trapped if they answer a question wrong. C’mon people, it isn’t that hard.
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…

The Oyster card in London was the best invention… you can top up online or on your phone… you still have to remember off course.
Holland does not have anything like that because I think they like giving out fines. I honestly forgot my mouthy pass needed renewing a few days ago but the train conductor was happy to point it out and fine me for it.
The way she treated me like a criminal annoyed me more then having to pay the fine itself.
