Corporate legend at a place I used to work many years ago had it that the CEO once flew back into DFW after one particularly long trip and had some exorbitant parking fees to pay.  Being the smart guy that he is he called a tow truck and paid for the tow instead.

They charged the tow truck to enter and leave, but not the car it left with and he saved the company a bunch of money on airport parking..

Cormee: £500 in fees, how long was he parked there?


It's the UK.  Probably 90 minutes.

Many moons ago I opened up a Mad Magazine which contained phony bumper stickers. My father took the one that said OFFICIAL USA then in small letters underneath was written taxpayer. He thought it was clever and put it on the front bumper of his VW.
He was trying to find a place to park in Manhattan and some parking attendant waved him in and allowed him to park for free

I went on a long road trip years ago, cross country. I bought one of those goofy fake Route 66 license plates in Arizona and stuck it on the front of my car (I was registered in a state with no front plate). Driving through California, I realized crossing a bridge that I had insufficient cash for a toll bridge. The toll attendant walked around to the front of my car, wrote down the license plate number, told me I'd receive a citation in the mail, and sent me on my way.

It never came, but if anyone in Cali had a RTE 66 vanity plate, I bet they were pissed off.

To be fair, he's disqualified from driving, not disqualified from parking.

/park in a driveway, drive on a parkway

Kids these days. No patience. My mom will drive around Manhattan for an hour trying to find free parking. I've fought with her when offering to pay peak garage rates.

Izunbacol: Ragin' Asian: Kids these days. No patience. My mom will drive around Manhattan for an hour trying to find free parking. I've fought with her when offering to pay peak garage rates.

Is she one of those people who does 10 over then jabs the brakes to do 5 under when she sees a speed camera?

A speed camera that's inactive. And only gives you a $40 ticket when it is?  That won't ping until 12 over?  That doesn't report to insurance?  That doesn't count as points on your license.

If so, I've seen her every single morning in suburban Maryland.

I'd be happy to Zelle these guys the money for a ticket if they just speed up or get the fark out of the way.


Hell no. She doesn't give a shiat about speed limits. She will, though, block a one way street waiting for someone to pack their shopping and get a child into a car seat while ten cars behind her are honking. Hence, why a fight ensues.
