So today a couple get on the train at the station with no tickets. It is clearly noted that if you do not buy a ticket at the station, bought a multi ride pass or have the mobile client you will be charge an additional $3.00 …. There is also an announcement before the train moves off of the additional charge just to make sure they cover their asses.
The couple get on the train with no tickets nor the mobile app and when the conductor comes by they start to argue with him about the fee and start to get a bit belligerent with the poor guy. All us other riders turn all eyes at them in disgust and some of us take stand with the conductor saying that they not only announced it on the intercom but it is a long-standing known fact and it’s posted in the station.
They end up getting off at the first stop grumbling to themselves.
