I was thinking the same thing after reading the other thread only to realize all the arguing back and forth among ppl replying, the SP's death threat, the whole bru-haha, was all over a forgoten pass?? WTF? I thought they caught him ducking ropes or sum shit. (...I didn't watch the clip. Slow mobile connection.)
I suppose if they didn't have the policy or tell ppl that "this is a one time deal?" They would have to dedicate staff to handling that kind of thing all day, every day! That and maybe the worry that you gave it to someone and you're trying to snake a freebie. That is my guess anyhoo.
But I am also with you in feeling that since I paid a shitload for the pass, if I forgot it and you have a record that I bought one? STFU and give me a temp pass!
Isn't that the way it works if you buy a day ticket, it gets ripped or lost and you have a receipt?
My 2¢ anyway.
