    Yuck. While I often have two $1 bills in my pocket, I don’t usually carry a dime. I can see this becoming a problem.

    I also carry the Translink/Clipper Card but the card fails periodically or is disabled due to a glitch with the credit-card charge. It usually takes ClipperCard 4-5 business days to fix the problem (I can’t use the card right now).
