So I got a parking ticket today in my cagerooski. I never get parking tix. I don't think I've had a parking ticket in like 7 years or something. I have secured parking at home and at work and since I live downtown, I walk pretty much everywhere anyways.
But I digress.
I get the ticket just as I'm bolting out to plug my expired meter. The meter maid (okay, he was a dude) tells me that since he just finished issuing the ticket, he can't take it back, but he suggests I call the number on the ticket and ask for a reprieve - if I have a clean record for parking on my plate #).
So I call the number and sure enough, I'm allowed **one free ticket** to be pardoned on my plate, if I request for it to be pardoned. So the ticket instantly gets pardoned but I no longer have the right to ask for any more pardons on parking tickets for as long as I own the plate on my car.
So now you know!
And knowing is half the battle.
