My first morning truly missing my car

This morning I get on the 77 to take me to red line, and my pass works just fine.  I get to Belmont, and board the train as normal with no problems.  I board my shuttle to work, and my pass is invalid.  How does a pass become invalid after I had just used it twice with no problems?  I miss my shuttle, I go back into the station to talk to the woman in the station office, she just tells me my pass is invalid, and provides no other assistance.  I sign into my CTA account on my phone, and everything is as it should be.  I get cash and buy a temporary pass so I can get to the next bus to my job.

The saga will continue when I’m able to spend an hour on the phone with CTA customer service, because I’m pissed.
