monday february 9

today i headed toward the subway and - remembering what a disaster it was the last time i had to buy tokens from a ttc attendant - decided to head to the opposite entrance of lansdowne station, where i could simply buy my tokens from a machine. unfortunately, this turned into an ordeal itself when i was met at the station entrance by a guy who asked if he could swipe me in with his metrocard in exchange for a token, since he had a friend waiting for him at the station's other entrance. caught off guard, i agreed, bought my tokens, made the trade, and entered the station without incident. it only occurred to me a few seconds later, as i was walking down to the platform, what kind of scam this guy was running.
