I had a meeting downtown today. I knew my parking meter would expire at 11:00 a.m. At 10:55, I had my quarter out, ready to go stuff the meter. But, the conversation wasn’t at any sort of natural pause so I just hoped that the meter maid wouldn’t be in my area.
After the meeting, when I got to my car, this was on my window. I groaned inwardly and prepared myself for a $10 ticket.
Instead, I found a candy cane and this in place of a ticket.
Notice the $0 amount and the nice message? It was a delightful holiday surprise.
