Are you giving it time to charge your cell phone battery, or are you trying to run your phone directly off of the 9 volt battery?

We cannot turn our back to crime like this. It robs the system. If the law is not enforced more will cheat. Plus those cops being there help deter other drimes also. Money well spent.

Before they raise fees they need to make people think twice about jumping the turnstyle. They also need to eliminate the free pss for employees and others. They are heading in the right direction with more »

Yes there is fraud and abuse at the T. There is fraud and abuse at most companies as well. We need to get The T back to square one with no debts and then forbid them from going back into debt. Do not more »

Are the tax payers getting any benefit out of this at all? Do we have to do this because every other state and Canada do it? It may be the price to play ball, but we should tweek this law so that we a more »
