Truly incredible

It happened again. For the second time in two weeks I got a parking ticket.

This time, the car was still running.

I've done it a million times--taken an armload of papers, panels, canvas and boards up to my studio space. There's not a place to park near the studios and it's it too far to walk from the student lots (trust me, I've tried). Plus, yesterday, it was raining. Ruined art supplies anyone? I might as well suck on twenty dollar bills and flush them down the toilet.

So I left my car running, ran up the stairs and came back down in a matter of minutes and had already gotten the lovely little notification on my windshield. Incredible right?

Problem is, I'm too embarrassed to dispute this one. I was in the traffic office less than 7 days ago...

Seriously!? That's crazy! I got a parking ticket a few weeks ago for parking as a visitor (which doesn't make sense because I graduated a month ago). I went to the campus police to protest and found out that I have parking priveleges as a faculty member--I'm not sure how that happened. Luckily they waived the ticket and now anyone who drives the pt can park in any A, G, C, or Y lot. You should borrow it when you go to the art studios. :)

Oh man. I had an experience with the byu parking police a week or so ago and I thought about you while it was happening. They are so infuriating.
