Petty, Vindictive Bureaucrats

Sunday, December 28, 2008

We drove around looking for parking, and settled for a metered space. We put money in the meter, but to no avail; the meter remained expired. So we gave up and left a note to the Meter Police. But we forgot: DC is filled with petty, vindictive bureaucrats, and writing tickets makes them feel Big. So it cost us $27 for parking: $2 for the meter, and $25 for the ticket.
