If he steals another one, his mother and father can hit each other with them.

I found a double meter laying on the ground about 10 years ago and took it home with me. Took forever to get into it - had to drill the locks out. Ended up with about 8 bucks and some token/slug-thing.

What made it worth it was telling a campus cop that came to our apartment for an unrelated bicycle theft report that I got it from a local "bargain market" and having her believe me. She didn't care as long as it didn't come from her campus!

Back when my hometown was getting rid of their parking meters in the downtown area, I got one for a Christmas present. I had it set up in my college dormitory room as a novelty item and might still have it around the house somewhere.

/it still worked

The cordless sawzall completely revolutionized the parking meter theft industry where I grew up. It turns out that you can cut the meter off the top of the pole in about 25 seconds...or so I've heard.

Still in shock that this headline was greened without the requisite C meme...
If at first you can't steal the change out of a parking meter, do you; C steal the whole thing, take it to your mother's house and put it in the closet.

I worked with a guy who enlisted under the "join the Army or go to jail" deal. His stepfather was a plumber, and would borrow a pipe-cutter and saw off the tops of parking meters. He got away with it for quite awhile.
