BART sanitizer dispenser empty!

Budget cuts or just an increasing caution amidst flu season? Perhaps it was broken? Whatever it was, the sanitizer dispenser was on empty. I don't use it often but I had forgotten my bottle of Purell and decided to try it out for the first time. To my surprise, nothing came out. Perhaps it was just put there by BART to pretend they care about H1N1? Joking. I'll be trying again before my next BART ride-- hope they will refill soon. Maybe with union contracts, they are only allowed to refill within a certain amount of time otherwise it would require overtime pay? Ha, joking again.

Are you kidding, the money the management took from the working people at BART and Riders goes towards bonuses and an Airport connector.. Plus a few other under the table deals. Overtime is abundant due to management understaffing anywhere they can since leftover money adds to the bonus of the management.

I think they need to hire more of those "your black muslim bakery" folks.

Hope you are washing you hands too because alcohol doesn't do much for flu.

The dispensers are sometimes fussy about dispensing the cleanser and sometimes you have to move your hands around to get it to work. I use the ones in Embarcadero and 12th St. all the time and it works fine.
