Over Thanksgiving, one persistent New Yorker lost her $76 30-day Metrocard (payment system for the New York City subway and buses). What did she do? She called the MTA for three days straight, waiting for 100-150 minutes each day just to speak to someone.
That’s a bummer, though I like to find the humor in any situation–one commentator suggested she help the Indian economy and outsource her calling. Apparently there’s a company that would do this for $4 an hour. Ingenuity on both behalf of both parties.
Anyways, I’ve decided not to rant about how much the MTA is like every single American DMV office.
