Whining Warning: Whining Ahead

Hi. My day sucks.

From the queasy feeling in my stomach to the $92 parking ticket (while I was IN the car, i.e. not actually parked) to the plans that got all fucked up, to the other plans that appear to be getting all fucked up ... just meh.

Specifics: I intend to fight the ticket. I probably deserved it, though it was also a solid case of a cop having a bad day and taking it out on me because I was there. Worst case scenario: I lose and end up still having to pay the fine anyway.

And more specifics: I was supposed to meet up with Sprout this morning. It didn't happen, and he managed to call when I was in the pool. Then I called him back when he was in a meeting. Fantastic. I was trying to arrange getting together so that it wouldn't interfere with my dinner plans with my Mom, but now those plans appear to be falling apart as well.

Signs from above that it's time to call today off and climb back into bed? Perhaps.

You can get a parking ticket while merely stopped? I'll bet that gets tossed when you fight it.

Sorry things aren't going well today. Perhaps tomorrow will be better!

I pulled over and got on the phone. He drove up as I was listening to my voicemail, pulled over across the street, got out and said something which I couldn't hear. I rolled down my window. He said I had one minute to move and then he would ticket me. I nodded OK. The he said "don't move," came over, wrote out a ticket, threw it at me, said that's what I got for ignoring him, and stormed away. I got out and walked over to his car and, as I approached, he sped away, leaving me standing in the literal middle of the street, shaking my head.

Oy. Definitely contest, and print the above out to share with them.

yeah DEFINITELY fight that. go down there and be really nice and dress nicely and just explain what happened and mention that you didn't want to drive and be on the phone, and that you didn't have any intention of staying in that space. i think you'll get it reduced at least.
