Advice, Books, and Fail: Sylvia J. @justviasyl On 10/24, I had 12 days remaining on my monthly MetroCard when it read "invalid" Just 30 minutes ago, it read invalid again, and it doesn't expire until 12/6. How much more time and money do I have to waste, #MTA? Your best advice is for me to mail it in. You must be jokin 8:04 PM-12 Nov 2018 2 Likes 2 li 2 NYCT Subway@NYCTSubway-8h wReplying to @justviasyl Hi Sylvia - -we know how frustrating this can be. Unfortunately, yes, a malfunctioning Unlimited Ride MetroCard must be mailed into us for investigation. Please do so right away as the reimbursement is based on the postmark date. (12) ABD NYCT Subway@NYCTSubway 8h Replying to @justviasyl The good news is that we are working on a new fare payment system that will include contactless and mobile payment options and, we believe, will be far more reliable and efficient. See mtainfo/press-release/ for more details. (2/2) л BD a J. @justviasyl 1h Replying to @NYCTSubway 1/3: 1) Visited the MetroCard Customer Service Centre-expecting reimbursement within 2 weeks like I was told. 2) Can you please clarify whether we get a new card/money is deposited baclk into the acc. we purchased the MetroCard with? 3) Still haven't heard about 10/24's incident Sylvia J. @justviasyl 60m Replying to @NYCTSubway 2/3: and I'm supposed to consistently waste more money when these issues occur and play the waiting game. My mom also sent in a claim form on 9/23 and has received nothing. Worst service ever. Don't make promises and fail to deliver, please Syia J. @justviasyl 59m Replying to @NYCTSubway 3/3: What are the statistics like for issues like this? This happens a lot in my neighborhood and I know a lot of people who would not come forward and chase after these happenings because of the lengthy process and/or language arrier Sylia J. @justviasyl 43m Replying to @NYCTSubway Great, it really is about time for contactless and mobile payment options to be available. More time should be spent on implementing more efficient processes. justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: My friend said: “You’re such a millennial - taking the fight to social media.” Yep. That I did. I’m just livid.  I’ll stop sharing this when the MTA stops taking all my hard-earned money I could be using for tuition, stickers, books, food, and other expenses. (Oh wait, that’s never…) Reblogging one week later…nope, I still have not heard anything regarding my 10/24 incident. I WILL NOT LET THE MTA get away with any of this so easily  The MTA has been even more upsetting this week. It has been taking two hours to get to work and get home…four hours of my life being stuck on trains that constantly seem to be experiencing extensive delays. OH AND STILL NOTHING from the MTA…I WANT MY REIMBURSEMENTS. Two weeks. It has been over a month since my first incident. The funny thing is that I’ve noticed MTA workers seated by the train station stairs and guys in uniform looking over the turnstiles. Let me just flatter myself for a moment and pretend they’ve seen posts like this going around and they sense more people will try to get through without paying. I have not done that but that just gets me even more frustrated. I am NOT at all well off to be in this position right now. MTA, you are absolutely dead in my books.

It was way closer to my home, and I had almost a decade of experience working in a coffee shop at that point.  Got to the interview, and it turned out they didn’t want a barista, they wanted someone to spearhead their new cafe, as the cafe that had been in the store before didn’t want to resign their lease with the bookshop. They wanted to put their own cafe in its place, all new menus etc. They needed someone experienced to train their new staff, to handle window displays, to communicate with the bookstore owners about changes and needs of the cafe, to be able to handle inventory and ordering. Okay, I had basically done most of that stuff at my previous job. I asked if cafe positions would also be required/trained to work the bookstore.They would. They would be required to run the book sale counter, stock and reshelf books, and help bookshop customers find things. They would also–despite having an outside cleaning company–have to help maintain bathroom cleanliness. They’d have to take out trash, and clean spills, and vacuum. Wow, that’s a lot, I said. Is this a manager’s position, then? No, I was told, it wasn’t, but there was a chance that after a training period it might become one. And that made me pause, because I’d been working as the front-of-house manager at my cafe, and I knew how much work that entailed, and what kind of money I was making, and it was only the commute that had me looking for a new job.So I asked what the job paid.$8. E I G H T  D O L L A R S. Per hour. Barely above minimum. For all of that work. For someone they expected to get an entirely new cafe up and running, and then also do the work of the bookstore and the cleaning company as well. I thanked the woman for the interview, said I’d have to talk to my significant other about the impact a four dollar pay cut would have on our finances, and that I wasn’t sure it was the job for me. She asked me to sleep on it, and she’d call me the next day. This is a job I was way more than qualified for. I had years of experience doing exactly the things they wanted. It was a convenient location, close to my home–I could walk there if I absolutely had to. I did not go home and talk about that four dollar pay cut and what it would do to our finances. I knew as soon as she told me that not only was it not feasible for us, it was downright insulting. That little money? For a frankly ridiculous list of responsibilities and expectations?She called back the next day. I thanked her again, and told her in no uncertain terms that my time was worth way more than what they were offering.And whenever people bitch about Millennials being lazy, not spending money, not buying houses…whatever the complaint of the month is…I think about the very nice lady who conducted this interview, and how confused she was that I didn’t want the job.

I’ll be honest with you it was the strength of my wife who trained me and told me, “If this situation happens, let’s leave.” And the training worked because I did not go into my first reaction, I grabbed her hand, we left, but the next day I went right to the agency. I have texts, I have phone conversations, and I said, “This is unacceptable!” And I told them how -you know- I almost got violent, but I didn’t. And I said, “What are you going to do about this predator that you have roaming your hallways?” And -you know- I was told, “We are going to do everything in our power.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked.
