It happened to me again. Everything was going well until I got to the Park & Ride lot and the stupid card reader wouldn’t accept my card that opens the gate. The attendants let me in, but I didn’t have a ticket (which I would need to get out after work). So I had to take it to the office and have someone type in some stuff on her computer to fix it–which made me miss the bus and I had to wait for the next bus. I didn’t get to the office any earlier than I would have if I hadn’t tried to get there on time.
I can’t win, so I’m going to stop trying because it just frustrates me and gets me all wound up. Then I get to work and people are looking at me like there’s something wrong with me because I’m the only one who is upset about it.
And yes, I fully realize how lucky I am to be in such a situation. It’s still frustrating on a personal level.REPORT ABUSE
