This Train Is All Stops To The Edge Of Reason

| Toronto, ON, Canada | Money, Transportation

(I’m going through the gate to the subway when I hear a woman talking to an attendant.)

Woman #1: “I only have $2 of the regular $3 fare.”

Attendant: *very amicably* “Don’t worry about it! Just go through.”

(Later on the platform, I overhear this loud exchange between the same woman, Woman #1, and her friend, Woman #2.)

Woman #1: “That’s what’s wrong with this city nowadays!”

Woman #2: “What are you talking about?”

Woman #1: “That idiot just let me pay $2 for a subway fare! TTC (our transit system) is always talking about how they don’t have any money, but he let me pay $2!”

Woman #2: “The transit system is going to h***!”

(I guess you really can’t make some people happy!)
