Neurotics are looking for problems. They want things to get worse. They want to be right. (Dr. Wayne Dyer, Staying On The Path, p. 178)
The Metro subway system is trying to raise fares this week. They didn't mention that they were also changing the computer system that reads the plastic fare cards. The old system worked well. All it took to open the fare gate was a quick swipe of the card over the spot that reads the card. Yesterday there were problems at a couple of the stations. Some people had to take their cards out of the protective plastic covers they were using. Others had to lay the card down on top of the circular spot that reads the cards and then pick up the card after the gate opened. Some fare gates wouldn't read the cards at all. I'll bet management has already written the check to the contractor that installed the new system. Murphy's Law Rules!
