The Old Expired Student ID Scam

Tyler Coates often uses his expired grad school ID to save money, because he is smart and thrifty (“I have no shame, because I also don’t have a lot of money”). (He is not alone!)

While in line to buy play tickets this weekend, he encountered an old-student-ID-user’s worst nightmare—a ticket clerk who actually cares about rules and regulations, ugh. Tyler made it out alive with student tickets in hand(no expiration date on his ID, so lucky ) but a woman in front of him was REJECTED.

I lost my student ID many years ago, but I would never have ever used it to for EXACTLY THIS REASON, even though this is the first time I’ve ever heard of this happening, ever ever ever. Ever.
