Bus Tales

I charged my CTA card today with $10. So of course I was surprised when the bus driver said my card was invalid. "I just loaded it," I said. She rudely replied, "Don't tell me you don't have any more money on you." Then after a sigh she said, "Go ahead." I wanted to advise her it's not my fault the machine can't read my card. But I thought an exchange of words wasn't necessary so I just moved along. As I sat down, I thought, "How dare she treat me like some crazy person."
