Parking Ticket in the Morning, Oh Yes

This morning, I woke up and thought to myself, "oh, this is going to be a great day... wait, the weather is slightly gloomy but oh well! That's not going to bring..." then I approached my car and saw a yellow slip on top of my window, "...me do(wn)-arnit!"

Buttercup

I really don't understand at times why such an ordinary and simple act of parking a car would be a crime. Maybe it's a crime when the city needs income. Maybe I'm just venting. I am. In any case, these tickets (yes, it's my second one- apparently non-metaphorical lightning, the ticket police, do strike at the same spot... twice) just make me a bit more cynical about parking... anywhere.

Truth is, is that I violated the overnight parking statute that isn't posted anywhere near my neighborhood, only at the borderlines entering the city. Which I would have to say, I never noticed until I had a ticket. The signs are so sma... I think I'm finished venting about that.

Nothing like a parking ticket to start the day. Whoop-dee-doo.

p.s. {Don't ask me about the pig... I really think it brings the humor out of the situation.}
