Today, on a train to the airport, the ticket inspector pointed out that my girlfriend and I hadn't activated our tickets. He suggested one of us get off and activate them at the next station. Now I'm on the moving train with all our luggage, and she's waving from the platform with our tickets. FML
No, in Holland you have to check in by sweeping your ticket or card in front of a check in pole or gate. If you don't do that your ticket is invalid, even if you just bought it from the ticket machine but forgot to check in, and there's no way of doing so on the train.
If she has both the tickets then are you getting kicked off at the next stop too? Seems like the conductor needs to be more organized with his directions.
Oh fuck me. Wrong FML, obviously.
