Metro Ticket Inspectors with Questionable Attitude

I was shocked when  I was issued a fine last week, I own & use Gold NOL, at metro between City Centre & MOE the Inspector fined me AED 200 accusing of some malpractice. I tried to explain,  but ended up paying fine.  The Ticket checkers (Inspectors) at the Metro are quiet annoying, adamant, rude & arrogant.

The most annoying part is, they only know how to find fault and impose fine. They are ruthless, mannerless and Brain less.
