Broke my fast after a little over 17 hours yesterday. I ate healthy - celery, salad, and chicken breast and cottage cheese later.

Went to the gym today. Did an hour of weight training and 40 minutes of cardio on the stairmaster. I dripped sweat all over the floor. :) Walked to work from the train station. Tomorrow is my bimonthly trip into San Francisco to check my mail. I should get some good walking in.

My TransLink card is all screwed up. Some idiotic cashier took my $80 of commuter checks and put them on an AC Transit monthly pass. I haven't been using monthly passes for a long time because I don't ride the bus nearly as often; I can walk many places I used to need a bus for. I wanted my $80 to be put on as regular cash and then pay per ride for the bus and train.

Unfortunately, I threw away the receipt thinking I didn't need it anymore and it didn't click in my head until last night what they did to my card. I never asked for a monthly pass! I only asked that the money be added to my card. Now I am stuck with an $80 monthly pass (and no train fare once my current paper pass runs out) that I have no use for. It's the cashier's fault, but I am the one who has to suffer the consequences of her stupidity and lose tons of money because of it!

It sounds as though her mistake or "stupidity", as you call it, was equally matched with your lack of attention to detail. I am grateful that my Lord and Savior doesn't treat me with the same "compassion" you treat/speak of others. Yes, it stinks that this happened, but not anymore than your attitude. Have you even tried to get the funds re-appropriated?

Of course I've tried to get the funds back!!!

My only mistake was getting rid of the receipt. There is no way to know that she put a monthly pass on the card until you start using it. You can't just look at the card and tell. I've been trying to work with Walgreens to work it out, but so far no luck.
