No Fare

For those of you living under a rock, bus, subway and train fares in NYC went up this weekend...Makes me glad I don't commute all the time!  On my way to Manhattan this morning, I stopped at a machine to add more money to my MetroCard. The machine gobbled up my $10.00 and then informed me that there was an error encoding my MetroCard. Are you kidding me?!?!?! So I had to spend another $10.00 with the clerk at the booth. This did not make me happy... I freelance and write-off, so rather than mailing in the card and my receipt, um, I need that MetroCard to get around, I'll just cut my losses...
