A big glass of WTF???
Okay City of Ottawa, you were feeling all warm and fuzzy before Christmas during the strike and granted us all reprieve from paying metered parking. And I thank you for that. But what happened over the holidays? Did you not get the present you wanted? Did Mayor Larry not pay you enough attention over the holidays? Did Toronto say something to hurt your feelings? Are you pms-ing? What else could explain the sudden decision to take away metered parking (without warning, I might add) and start issuing tickets? Seriously. Imagine the bile in my throat when I walked to my car the other day and found a ticket, for $95, for stopping in a no stopping zone. There is no way this way a no stopping zone – there was no signage ANYWHERE to indicate that it was a no-stopping zone. I have been parking there for the past 4 weeks without any indication that I was doing anything wrong. Well, City, I took pictures, from every freaking angle. I’m not scared to fight for what is right. See you in parking violation court bitch.
(errr, if I’m wrong about the parking thing bloggers, please let me know. I’m feeling feisty right now, but I don’t want to don my white wig in court and embarrass myself)
