I got a kick one day watching a 20 something after finding out that it took a minumum $5 dollar purchase to use the card, searching for somethin extra to purchase along with his bottle of water.

Based on the amount of time he was looking, I assumed he had zero cash in his pocket. After a while he decided he didn't want to buy anything else, and would pay in cash. He proceeded to pull out a bankroll of greenbacks big enough to choke a horse.

Another incident, a 20 something was making a huge, huge fuss on my commuter train because the on-board fee was more expensive than the machines at the station, but mostly because the conductor required cash as he is not allowed to accept credit cards. The inability to use a credit card was what really set him off. This all for a $12 fare.
