QUESTION: If I lost my old Watcard and got a replacement card, but found my old one afterwards, can I get my old one reactivated again?

  1. Nope. Cut it up. Maybe see a therapist about your attachment disorder.

  2. OP here: the old one has a longer expiry date.

    1. You should just keep it and use it for the bus and gym, then (since I don't know what else you'd use it for). When I got my graduate student card, I said that I lost my old one so they didn't take and destroy it. It seems that bus drivers only go by the expiry date they see on the card. It won't matter if it looks like the old card (if you have the green one).

    2. tl;dr It doesn't have to be active for you to use it for the bus or gym (unless you get in trouble and they really scrutinize it -> unlikely)

    3. @ 3b Never in 4 years of attending UW have I been asked to show my Watcard at PAC or CIF (they should really do this though, as there seems to be many people that do not look like students/profs/other staff).

  3. This is how human cloning is done.
