Today, I accidentally left my concession card in the photocopier. I then got fined for not having a concession card on the train. I was photocopying it for a letter to get out of a fine for not having a concession card. FML

What the heck is a concession card?

i have been to melbourne and i've heard how the connex (the train company) officers fine people unreasonably. concession cards are like lower fare train tickets for students/kids. most of the stories i've heard from people involve forgetting their tickets... if you photocopy your existing ticket (which has a date stamp that proves you've bought one while you were on a ride at that time) and send the photocopy in, they might believe you and not fine you. i know how sucky those officers are so i agree fyl. but i don't get why you didn't show them the photocopy you just made, or did you forget that too... which is too stupid because what was the point of going to photocopy and leaving emptyhanded.

I'm sure that happened. Yeah.

I modded this one :D haha this so sucks for you, how about explaining the situation?

Trying to explain the situation results in getting beaten up (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNC-nIYb7fs for example). If it gets to court and they don't accept your excuse, you're fined twice.

Guys what does OP mean

#6, original poster; in this context, the poster of the FML.

why not just make 5 photocopies of the concession card next time. lol

#2 a concession card is like a season pass, only for a train
