prez day is not really a holiday

two nights ago, i parked in a meter parking spot bc it's the closest available parking around. the next day (prez day), i slept in thinking the meters would be free. so wrong. i am, oh, so wrong. it used to be, but it isnt anymore!

i guess the city needs the money..... but i need the money too. *tears*

and bc of that, i say, if the meters aint free, it aint a holiday! even if i got the day off!

dont ask me why i kept using "aint" lol it just seemed to flow. and yes i'm fully aware it's grammatically incorrect

EDITED: heather sent me this: http://www.sfmta.com/cms/penf/holidayenf.htm for future references lol

They need to make a new digital meter where you can pay for it with your cell phone so you don't have to run down to the meter everytime it runs out (it's txt you 5 mins before running out)... hmmm there's an idea. I THOUGHT OF IT FIRST!

in the city, we have meters where you can pay by the phone. certain ones, you need a card and you can just pay by calling.

but i dont think they send you a text to notify you that time is going out. now THAT'S an idea lol patent it haha

so someone i knew uses it and i THOUGHT he told me he just calls them and they add in time... but they dont say that on the site. soo?? no clue.

but eddy, as i was looking to see if we can add more time by calling, i found out that europe already has the option to add in money/time by texting or/and calling.

Yeah I did.

Automatic sensor faucets...I've seen those in Japanese pachinko parlors since I was in elementary school. They are really starting to pop up all over the place here too now.

Yup, now some American will just steal the idea and make millions off it.

I still remember when Americans said texting would never catch on here like it has over in Japan. Now look at texting.
