Wow, the Clipper Card system sucks even more than I thought,
I have a handful of clipper cards that I use for commuting on light rail, and occasional use on other systems.
Never had any problems. But I ONLY add cash, at Walgreens, from time to time. I don't dare use a credit card or bank debit method.

Rin's corroboration with a female ex-classmate,
Yes this is extremely common in the 1st world. I've noticed in developing countries that men are proud of their wives and proud of their children and love life. However in place like the United States, where men are discriminated against and hated for being men, it's very hard to find peace.
Hmm, your post says a lot more than maybe you meant it to.
Because the US is a 1st world place, but it is also a developing country at the same time. So it means there's those miserable nuclear households Rin reassured himself that he's happier than, and there also the kinds of more contented nuclear households that you described. There's both. That's the American Dream: one has the possibility to be who they want to be. Rin can choose to be contented reassuring himself there's someone else more miserable than he, and folks like Peter P and myself (and maybe iwog?) can be content with our more "traditional" situations.
