meter maid bitch

today, like all days, i was a few mins late for work. i didnt want to be any later by parking in the garage so i left my car outside. it looks better to leave for a few mins to park my car than to come in even later than i already am.

but also, like many other days, i forget about the 1 hr limit and leave it in the same place longer than it should be... today, a coworker of mine looked out the window and saw me getting a ticket. when i got there, i said to the meter maid, "can i move it now?" she said to me "too late! you've been here for an hour and a half." ok i didnt argue, i deserved it. so i waited for her to finish so i can move my car.

when she was done, i lifted my hand to get the ticket but instead of handing it to me, she put it on the car anyway... uh? ok, whatever. i went to park my car. when i came back, she was still there giving another car a ticket. so i went over to her, took the ticket out and hand the envelope back to her. i said, "i dont need this, i pay for it online. you can reuse it." i was being environmental friendly. she said to me "keep it as a souvenir."

what a bitch!

The ticket doesn't count until it's placed on your car. You could have just taken off.

She didn't take your envelope back because people are known to fill/cover the envelope/ticket with urine, drugs, feces, etc.

Most meter maids are assholes.

no dude. the tickets get mailed to you if you dont pay for it. it does count! i cant argue it. if that's the case, everyone can pretend they never got the ticket!

and i give you that much about the envelope. but she could've just been nice and say something like "i'm not allow to take it back" or something like that!

Maybe, but I remember watching the reality tv meter maid show and they always said that there's nothing someone can do once it's placed on the car, but I've seen people driven off and the meter maids will go "I'll get them next time".

bc if that's the case right, i can just throw the ticket away and pretend i never got it. so i dont think that thing about it has to be placed on the car to work? esp if it's already printed out. if it's not printed out, it's a diff story.

I would assume the ticket has to not be completely written. This was in Chicago, so rules might be different?

yeah i think not completely written is a diff story :P

i wonder why they're all so disgruntled? i mean, they're giving everyone else a hard time already. so, what's with the attitude? they should be feeling pretty good about themselves for screwing ppl over. i mean, they're doing their job like they should...meeting quotas and such. if it were me, i'd be handing out tickets to ppl with a smile on my face. lol. i just made a funny cuz i don't smile. but that's besides the point!
