Today, I tried to catch a train to get to my new job. I was stopped and told that I needed a pre-purchased ticket to enter the platform. The only way to get the ticket, they said, was by buying one on the platform. I arrived by taxi nearly an hour late for my first day. FML

While I agree with you I can understand if they had nerves being that it is their first day of work. My first day of my first job I forgot my work shoes in my car and walked in wearing flip flops. Shit happens.

Ok now I see where that may have been confused, but I still would think one could order one over the phone/Internet. Otherwise that train station wouldn't have very many people using it...

I hate to be mean, because this sucks, but YDI for not planning everything out ahead of time. There could've been any number of problems that occured; you should've already bought your ticket beforehand.

Hopefully your boss is the understanding type. On the up side of things, now you can get a ticket in advance for th next time (maybe online?) and come up with a back-up plan for things like that in the future.
