It took me nearly 15 minutes to get a new Metrocard today. What a freaking cluster f*ck.
I happen to be at a station that is under construction, so it only has two machines at this entrance. Of course, there’s always a line because there’s only the two machines.
So I got in line. Once I finally got to the front of the line, I’ll bet you can guess what happened. No credit cards.
For whatever reason, the credit card reader wasn’t able to read my card. At first I thought it was just me.
So I got back into line for the second machine. From there, I saw that other people were having the same issue I did with my original machine. So I had to wait in line all overagain.
You know, I really need to get involved with TransitChex or something. I’m getting pretty sick of this crap.
