This comic was meant for last week… I’ll try to get an extra one out this week to compensate… Darn you summer and your wonderful distractions!
Could our hero have swiped twice to get her on?
Why is life so difficult!
Yeah actually I guess you’re right… I guess they never thought of that…WE never thought of it a couple of weeks ago when this actually happened to us! doh
I’ve just been told that the reason is that the bus system will not allow you to double-swipe… maybe it’s a safety feature to prevent you from getting double-charged for a ride?
There must be a timeout on the swipe to allow a 2nd swipe, like after 10 or 15 seconds or something. I would think a 10 second lapse would be more than enough to ensure a double-swipe didn’t happen.
Another solution is to become enraged, rip the rear axle off the bus and ride it like a log jam.
So many options…
Steve, you gotta inject some optimism into your readers. It’s becoming very sad to follow these guys. Is there any hope?
bah.. optimism’s overrated… I say let em suffer! don’t worry, soon it will all be over — one way or another
