Rage Against the Machine

Was never a huge fan of the music, but this may be the best band name ever. See, I am so tired of being ass-fucked. It is not a loving, sensual ass-fuck, it is more the prison rape variety -- be it Comcast, or AT&T/SBC/Whoever or some airline or Dartalk or the city of Oakland.

The Ass-fuck of the Day (AFOTD) goes to AC transit, whose bus ate my $35 pass. After 15 minutes of trying to get the pass out, they give up and hand me a form to return to the cashier for a new pass. When said form goes to cashier, she tells me that they will contact me in a few weeks!?! I tell her that sucks and it means I need to buy a new pass and why can’t she just hand me the damn thing. She just stares at me, silently. Yep, I am getting ass fucked and there is nothing I can do about it.

See that is the thing about ass-fucking. The $35 is a bit of a shackle, but that is not that big a deal. The powerlessness of it is what gets me. There is not a damn thing I can do. That just riles up the rage.

Remember that Sunday night when I left your place in the inner Sunset, got on the last N, and he dropped me off inside the padlocked Van Ness station? Then 45 minutes later he comes back from sitting at the Embarcadero, I look at him like I'm gonna kill him, then rather than running back to the previous N stop a mile back, he goes all the fucking way out to West Fucking Portal? So I'm at the West Fucking Portal having no idea where the West Portal is (just that "West" is bad if you live at Van Ness and California) at 3am, and I have my internship starting at 5am downtown. I have to find the Owl that runs from here this unfamiliar stop, and I finally get to my apartment after 4am.

Sweet, sweet busfucking shackletorium times.

To update my readers. Today, I received from AC Transit, a copy of my form + a second form that is exactly the same, with one extra question on it. It appears that the bus folks gave me an older version of the form.

More to come.

Wanted to update you that on Sat. 8/19, one month after the bus ate my pass, I did receive a new bus pass in the mail.
