I understand the the MTA has a monopoly on mass transit, but rude and inconsiderate workers are not acceptable.
I had just gotten on the 3 train and noticed my wallet was missing. I got off at Wall street and took the next subway back. When I reached the Clark Street token booth I asked the Person working (Badge# 97384) If I could get back in because I needed to get my wallet from home. She was giving me attitude as soon as I stepped up to the booth, Like I was disturbing her. She told me to swipe my card and I did. She said that it was too long ( I assume time wise). I have no idea what I'm expected to do, I don't control the speed or distance the trains travel. It wasn't like I could tell the engineer to turn the train around. Anyway, she said she would give me 5 minutes to get my wallet. I live 4 blocks away and 5 floors
up. I ran there and back, but when I got back she shook her head NO!! and yelled at me that "I took too long". I think she said it took me 6 minutes. I showed her my Drivers License to prove my address but all she did was BARK "SWIPE IT!!!!" very rudely and Yelled at me "TWO DOLLARS". If she had just said no from the beginning, I wouldn't have been upset, but she made me run 8 blocks for no reason.
