Ah, the day after the day after the day of the turkey. Not quite as famous as Black Friday, but still well regarded as one of the slowest news days of the year. Even if things of interest are going on in the world you wouldn't know it because nobody is reading or watching the news (which reminds us, why are you here? It's a beautiful day outside). OK, so now that we've got that caveat out of the way lets get to it...

So you remember the holiday metrocards that went into effect yesterday? Yes? Well, turns out that the discounts promised (y'know $1 a ride instead of the usual $2) weren't quite accurate if you take the bus in the Bronx.

The MTA claims the mess up, in which a bunch 'o buses were charging full fares, can be blamed on the fact that they need to "individually calibrate" the card reader on each bus. To which we say "Yawn. Typical MTA. No excuses, please, just fix the problem." Which, with union negotiations in full swing, we assume they will. But so you know, if you've been charged a full fare this weekend you don't have to take it. Call (212)638-7622 and ask about getting yourself a nice little refund.
