THE GRIPE
I am so sick of shelling out my hard-earned dough on public transportation. And they’re threatening to raise prices again!

THE FIX
Chin up, straphangers. Even though the MTA is talking fare hikes yet again, TONY’s got you covered. Well, for an hour, anyway. From 8 to 9am, the TONY Fix-It Team will be handing out free single-ride MetroCards to help ease your commute. Look for them at the Union Square, 96th Street (1, 2, 3) and Bedford Avenue stations.

For crap’s sake, why can’t people learn not to block subway doors?!? Move all the way into the car, dammit!

THE FIX
We’ve heard this one before (and okay, fine, we’ve been the culprits a few times). From 5 to 6pm onboard the 6 train, the TONY Fixers will help with a bit of crowd control, directing the throngs of commuters better than that “stand clear of the closing doors” guy ever could.


THE GRIPE
Public bathrooms are nasty—do we really have to rely on Starbucks for that, too?

THE FIX
Be sure to time your throne-sitting to coincide with a walk through the Village. In the afternoon, Team TONY will be sprucing up Washington Square Park’s public johns, complete with pretty bath mats, two-ply toilet paper and flowers. Sounds better than your loo at home, doesn’t it?

THE GRIPE
I’d totally go to clubs if it weren’t for the velvet rope—and all those bouncers who only let in trampy B&T girls.

THE FIX
Bypass the rope (it’s only velour, anyway) with our special TONY VIP coupon, good at three clubs this week. It’ll get you right to the front of the line on Monday 21 at Cielo, on Tuesday 22 at Mansion and on Wednesday 23 at Santos’ Party House.

Duane. Reade. Employees. Are. So. Very. Slow. (And. Surly.)

THE FIX
Well, we were going to have certain drugstore staffers be super-extra friendly on TONY Fix-It Day, by doubling their salary via official channels. But (surprise!) the company never returned our calls. So we went ahead and did it anyway: At four key locations—we can’t reveal which ones, for fear of people getting fired—look for the cashiers to greet you with prompt service and an actual—come on, you can do it!—smile.
