Why I Hate The Fuzz Face

ladies and gentlemen,

today after school, we had our first combined indoor marching band practice. i decided to drive max and myself to washington middle school...so obviously we had to park the neon. i wanted to be as close as possible, so i parked on the side of the road...directly next to washington middle school.

now, being that we were running a little late, this was an AMAZING parking spot. the general public may have been thinking, "that's an illegal spot, isn't it?"

no.

strategically placed on the side of the road was not one...but TWO signs. they read as follows: "no parking between signs."

i parked, walked out of my car, and maxwell and i both verified that i was indeed OUTSIDE of the zone, therefore i had parked legally.

as soon as our practice was over, we walked out to the neon, and this female-dog-of-a-lady said, in a VERY rude manner, (in fact, i'm guessing she called the PO-lice) "I THINK you better check your windshield. You MIGHT have a ticket."

placed perfectly under my windshield wipers...was a $25 ticket.

granted, $25 is nothing. (if you're in high school) but, REALLY, look at these pictures--tell me--AM I BETWEEN THE SIGNS?


This is a picture of the first white sign--the neon is parked a few feet to the right. ----->

This is the 2nd sign...CLEARLY the neon is not between the signs! (if you're wondering about that handicapped thing in the background--it's NOT handicapped parking--that blue sign is indicating where the "oak street handicapped entrance" is for the school)

it looks like this is the only reasonable thing to do.

OMG! did you get my myspace comment! i too received a ticket and i was parked BEHIND YOU! (although in the wrong direction-i was in a hurry too)

i made a post earlier (no pics tho) and think we should save our lighters to burn her house. apparently four cars got tickets. i waited to see if you were coming, to explain, but i didn't trust myself around her at the time. this is soo worse than the time i got kicked off the bus!

They have this bullshit thing where you can't actually go to court for a parking ticket - your only method of contesting it is by filling out a form, which gives you two lines to explain yourself in, which is then not looked at by a judge or anything but by the boss of the police officer who ticketed you. They don't offer any sort of rebuttal - just a phonecall like a week later that says your request has been denied. Best part? There aren't actually any laws regulating placement of No Parking signs, it's all just policies of the whatever department does those sorts of things, so you can't actually reference the law in order to contest it.

The hilarious thing was, I was standing there the whole time, and when you guys drove off, the lady started talking to a parent that was coming in. The parent asked what was going on and the lady was like, "Oh, it's some band kids. I have to stay here and keep them out of OUR parking spots." Her voice was practically dripping with her passion for her righteous cause. Way to fight for those Fun'N'Friends parking spaces, lady.

Max: But we weren't between the signs.

Lady: You goddamned band kids show up here and fucking park all over the goddamn place! We've got 50 kids in there, shithead! Where the fuck are these motherfucking parents going to pick up their motherfucking kids? Huh? Riddle me that, motherfucker!

Max: Look, I'm not maligning (yes I said it) your right to have parking spaces, I'm just saying that these were not properly marked. It doesn't say "Four spaces reserved" anywhere.

Lady: You smug little jackass, I'm gonna rip your fuckin head off and shove it up your ass, then push your goddamned car off a motherfucking cliff!

Max: Hey, Precious Cargo! (points to kubas)

God forbid they have to park a little farther away and walk...

I wonder if she did it to the choir, too?

see, the difference between myself and you others...

you acutally deserved the tickets...whereas that lady influenced the fuzz into giving me a ticket when i was CLEARLY parked in a legal area.

therefore, i'm allowed to bitch.
