Went to a 3rd birthday party today, was traveling home on the train at 11pm and I got fined about $170 for having my feet up on the seat. Sitting quietly reading a book resting on my legs, I had my thongs/flip flops resting on the seat in front of me when a plain clothes inspector asked for my ticket, I showed it to him, he said it was fine but I had my feet on the seat and proceeded to ask me for all my ID and why I had my feet up, to rest my book, I'm tired, the seats are a lot more comfortable sitting like this.

As you may be able to guess I'm fucking pissed off, how in the fuck is that worth $170. It's not like I'm taking up the seat that someone could be sitting in when there are only a couple people in the carriage, I'm not damaging the seat, the thongs are rubber and the buttons on my jeans are much more likely to do damage to the seat, I'm not doing any anti-social behaviour, graffiting or cutting up the seats, I'm not even eating or drinking and getting food all over the seats.

Fuck you, how about putting effort into actually catching people who are doing something that negatively impacts the system, the ones who actually graffiti the seats and windows, break things and make you want to get off at the next station and just wait for the next train because a fight is going to break out soon rather than alienating people who use the system in good faith.

When I get my fine I'm writing a letter and I better fucking get out of it because $170 does not fit my supposed fucking crime, if it was $20 I would probably pay it no worries, but $170 who in hell is running this fuckery.

That is the biggest bag of bullshit I have ever heard, you shouldn't have even been fined in the first place!
I hope that shit gets overturned because $170?!? For something that could've been solved with a five second conversation of "please take your feet off that seat, thank you." BULLSHIT.

(I hate tickets)
