Thank You Long Island Rail Road Ticket Puncher

I just want to send a big thank you out to the asshole ticket taker on my train this morning. You see.. i buy a monthly pass to ride the Long Island Rail Road. This helps cut down the daily costs of commuting. However, it's still expensive for the month. As much as a car payment for sure. Anyway, for the first time in 7 months, i forgot my monthly ticket. I realize this when chief dickhead comes to check.

I say, "Oh man.. i forgot my monthly pass!"

He looks at me like he gives not a shit, then shrugs his shoulders.

I say, "So you're going to make me pay huh?"

He looks at me like i'm a complete ass and puts his hand out like he doesn't have time for this.

Completely aggravated, i take out 20 bucks, becuase it costs $18 one way, which includes a $5 surcharge for buying your ticket on the train and not at a machine.. and i toss the money on the seat closest to him. I'm in a 3 seater, with no on else in the row.

King douchebag did not like this tossing of the money. So what does he do? he punches my ticket and throws it at me. The ticket then falls behind the seat into a very nasty abyss where no one will stick their hands.. He then proceeds to make my $2 change and throws that at me as well. Which also falls into the nasty abyss.

What excellent customer service you have LIRR ticket punching asshole. Is it that hard to understand that i already paid out the ass for a monthly ticket, that i might not be so happy when you bang me $20 for something i already paid for? Have a little understanding.

Another thing to note.. we have the same ticket guys pretty much everyday. It was no more than 3 days ago i saw this same ticket punching dick allow some poor young lady who forgot her monthly pass a 'free' ride. I guess my lack of cleavage makes a big difference on whether or not you provide your customers with some understanding.

Here's to you king asshole ticket puncher.. you represent the Long Island Railroad exactly how i expect you to!

You have some nerve. If I was the conductor, I'd throw the ticket & change at you as well.

So it is ok for you to be rude because he/she is following procedure but it isn't when it is given back to you.

Real mature! I bet you are one of those pompous white pricks who think they are above everyone.

I worked retail for 13 years and if someone threw money at me, I'd throw their change back at them.

I would always be nice to customers that were nice to me. But I will treat you the same way you treat me. You were in the wrong. You should have smiled, oops, my bad, forgot the pass, and moved on. Besides, is it really worth the stress that it caused? Nope.

The thing is these guys don't show common courtesy. I ride the commuter rails all around the city and litre guys are by far the biggest jerks.

I agree that the conductor's conduct was unprofessional, but you are in absolutely no position to be complaining about it considering how you conducted yourself.

I have plenty of experience with the LIRR, and they aren't great- they have more than their fair share of problems. I could make a very long list of all of the problems with the LIRR. However, a lot of complaints I hear about the LIRR are just plain stupid, such as this. You just can't expect some guy that probably deals with hundreds of people every day to remember that you have a monthly and cut you a break.

However, one thing worth noting is that I have had only a handful of rude conductors in my time on the LIRR. In fact, I've found most of them to be very courteous; maybe this has to do with the fact that I'm courteous to them,

Metrocard machine ATE my LIRR monthly ticket, station clerk says "I called the guy, he will be here in 2 hours, you gonna wait?" It's 14 degrees and I have to get to work. I ask can you hold it for me, I will be back here.. "No, we gotta send to Penn Lost and Found". Ok, give her my business card, attach this to the card when you get it out.
Ok
Get back there (Court Sq) later in the day, I see her "Hey, did the guy get my ticket out?".
"Yeah, but you shoulda tol' me you were coming back I would have held it"
I shit you not.
It's been 2 weeks, no card, I'm forced to pay DOUBLE now. Some ticket takers are nice, who know me, but that scumbag on the 6:08 out of Hunterspoint. Has the balls to say "You gotta note?"
My response was "MTA employees cant even speak right, you expect one to write me a note?"

It is 2016 and the LIRR is still paying people to punch holes in tickets, with amazing benefits by the way. Is it a mystery that costs are twice revenue*, and that the prices keep going up but the trains take just as long to get to the city as they did literally 100 years ago*?
* as of 8 years ago when I last checked

The LIRR desperately needs a method of allowing customers/riders to show proof of ownership of a monthly ticket ( i.e.; a receipt with your credit card's last 4 digits on it, Name on receipt, etc).
