Apparently I'm bad at math.

Last week I posted a blog about getting a $40 parking ticket while I was trying to avoid a $2 parking charge while returning an $11 pair of tights.

I was so annoyed about the ticket that I put it in my car to deal with later.

Later became this morning. I thought my $40 parking ticket was funny but when I went to write the check I realized the ticket wasn't for $40 it was for $70! WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!?! Was my "crime" really worth $70? I was in the mall for 9 minutes- so each minute cost me $7.77.

My jeep is worth is only worth about $70! (that's not true- I LOVE my jeep)

I'm going to use the "Secret" and will myself a $70 cup of coffee. (that's an inside joke to those who have watched the Secret dvd- although it's not really funny)

p.s. If you're a meter-maid punch yourself in the face and get a new job.

Here's my post from last week in case you care...


Last Friday I bought a pair of $11 black tights for the 3 Way Premiere. When I went to get ready for the party I noticed the tights were torn within the package.

Today I finally went back to the Beverly Center to return the tights but I didn't want to pay $2 for parking in their lot. (why pay $2 when I'm only getting $11 back?)

I ended up driving around for 15 minutes to find a local parking meter and put in $.35 to save some cash. Winston was in the car so I ran in and out of the mall in 9 minutes. (yes I timed it because I'm a dork)

When I returned to my car there was a $39 parking ticket on my car.

Apparently the parking signs said:

2 Hour Parking from 9am-4pm
No Parking from 4pm-7pm...and of course it was 4:07pm. (why didn't I notice that sign?)

In summary by returning my $11 tights to save $2 on parking it cost me $39.35.

i really think they make the signs as confusing as possible to rake in the bucks. damn sneaky metermaids.

You are not bad at math, you just need a new pair of glasses!

Aww that totally sucks! There should be more free parking garages.
