Select Bus Ticket Machine Woes

One of my former high school classmates, RR, posted the following Facebook status last night. I saw it this morning and thought it would be a great post here. He graciously allowed me to use it…Thanks, RR!!

I can understand his frustration. Those “Select Bus” ticket machines are a-holes! If they’re not misreading or unable to read your ATM/credit card, they’ll double charge you, they’ll do what it did to RR or his friend, who’s card the machine stole. You’d think that with the $1 they’re charging to get a new card, they’ll have the funds to make sure the machine work properly, not steal from you! And good luck dealing with customer service!!!

All I can say is I’m glad I wasn’t on that train…
