What "get my goat up" (although, I don't own a goat) is the type of double digit brain celled morons who subscribe fully, unflaggingly and incessantly to idiotic and illogical rules and laws. I am sure that you are the type to demand your taxi driver has a full bail of hay in the trunk of their carriage at all times, and you quite happily make stool on public streets, happy in the knowledge you are breaking no laws as long as a number 1 doesn't come out too.
WHAT DRUGS ARE YOU ON?? (Thats in reference to the second paragraph).
As for the first paragraph.... what is so complicated about selecting the station you are going to and either the word "single" or "return". Both my 11 and 10 year old sons can do this. I really dont know if you are just another one of those bored WUMs we find on the C&T board every so often or weather you truly need to see a shrink. Whatever it is, that post cannot be taken seriously, and so neither can you.

bit of a shambles
If there were many people not buying tickets, and therefore many people all being stopped at Pearse - all saying the same story - alarm bells would be going off and payment would be accepted at the station in those circumstances. Your post lacks credibility to me.
I really do not understand what the problem is here. These yokes have been in service for a good while now. It has been a long long time since the clampdown on not having a ticket was implemented. If you are a regular commuter (like every day or even once a week) you know
the story that paying at the end is over and has been for a long time. Trying that one is a non starter.
