Aiyyo the bottom line is I’ma crook with a deal
There has been a lot of hype over on MARTA’s Facebook page regarding refunding passes from last week due to the snow storm. MARTA has caved in and decided to go ahead and issue passes for two days of travel to qualifying Breeze card holders. To this I have three responses:
A. The train was running. Since there was some level of service I don’t see the justification in the refunds. Y’all could have walked uphill, in the snow, three miles, both ways, like me, in order to go see your friends downtown, play in the street, and buy groceries. It was loads of fun; y’all were just lazy.
B. Wait, weekly passes are like, weekly. And the week starts on Monday. And the storm hit on Sunday. So when did y’all activate that pass, anyways?
C. MARTA owes me 50 cents (and when did the cents symbol disappear off keyboards?). I keep cash on my Breeze card because CCT doesn’t accept Breeze passes, only cash value or CCT passes, which MARTA doesn’t accept. CCT bus fare used to be $1.50, however, in the round of the most recent service changes in November, the fare was increased to $2. There is now a random 50 cents balance on my card. The smallest amount you can add to your card at a Breeze machine is $1, and there is no way that I can use 50 cents on the system, so MARTA has officially stolen 50 cents off of me. I demand my refund!
It don’t matter, if you got it and I need it I want it
50 Cents ain’t f*ckin around
Track Masters ain’t f*ckin around
Crazy Cat ain’t f*ckin around
The Madd Rapper aint f*ckin around
So watch your backs, watch your pocket book, watch your pockets
Watch everybody on the train, watch everybody on the bus
Cause we gonna get you whether you like it or not
