I’m going to tell you a story.
Today, when I got to campus, I could not find a parking spot. I am not exaggerating when I say there were literally zero parking spots available. I circled the largest commuter lots multiple times, anxiously watching the clock as I realized that if I didn’t find a space immediately, I was going to be late to class, which I find extremely rude and have never done before today. I ended up parking illegally in a spot that was between two normal spots, but was set aside as part of a walkway. I knew I was going to get a ticket, so I ripped a piece of paper out of my notebook and quickly scrawled the note pictured above. I figured if I was going to have to pay forty bucks for a parking violation that wasn’t hurting anyone (I wasn’t in a handicapped spot or blocking traffic), I was going to give them a piece of my mind.
I went to class, resigned with the idea that I was going to get a ticket. I ended up being five minutes late, because I had to hike all the way across campus to get to the building my classes were in. When I was done, I trekked all the way back to my car, wanting to inspect the damage that the ticket had done.
When I got there, I saw a piece of paper under my windshield wiper, but it was too big to be a ticket. I opened it, and it was a piece of looseleaf that said “THAT NOTE IS SPECTACULAR.” There was no ticket. I win this time, RoPo.
