Is it me, or does getting a new MetroCard throw off your morning “flow?”
I’m talking about the days when you don’t realize that your monthly pass has expired. You swipe in your normal hurry, and DENIED.
Without fail, there will then be a empty train filled with open seats approaching your stop. Of course, there’s no way you’ll make it in time because there’s a line at the MetroCard machine. But you’ll try anyway, only to make it down to the platform as the doors close.
So I guess there’s something to be said for Transit Check. At least you know that someone else will keep track of when you need a new card. However, there’s something about that system that I just don’t trust. I don’t know what it is, I just don’t like to be at someone else’s mercy. I prefer to screw up my own commute.
So anyway, new card day is a sure way to ruin your transit mojo. Plus, it sucks to shell out
$78 $76 bucks for a new card.
