I absolutely hate, despise, loathe, abhor the new parking meter ticket prices. Actually, I hate tickets in general, but to add insult to injury, the city has decided to cheer on parking enforcement as they issue out $14 tickets instead of $8 tickets when I'm a minute late getting to my car. A 175% increase? Honestly, I paid my $2 to park for 2 hours, don't you think that you could give me a break for a MINUTE?! No, that would be too kind. And besides, meter maids, you have to fill quota, I get it. But don't you think it's a little unethical to issue tickets 2 minutes before my time has expired? Yeah, that has happened to me before. I even checked my cell phone, which is set on GMT. Oh sure, I can get it protested you say. Who is going to believe me? No one. So the next morning you find gum jammed in all the coin slots on your meters, don't be surprised. It's your boss' fault.
