Parking tickets

Every now and again I watch the show "Parking Wars" and even though I hate to get tickets, I find it hard as heck to feel sympathy for the people on this show who get ticketed and booted.

For example, there will be people who owe hundreds of dollars in unpaid tickets and then the car gets booted and they get mad. But you owe money for unpaid tickets! It's not like it's a random booting.

Or they will park in a no parking zone so they can run in and get a sandwich then get mad when they get a ticket. OK, it only took you 2 mins, but you were in a NO PARKING ZONE. That doesn't mean no parking for everybody but you. That doesn't mean no parking except for the couple of minutes people need to go get their sandwich. It means no parking. None. Nada. Zilch.

Yeah, yeah, they cut the film to show the parking folks in the best light, but still they couldn't show these meltdowns if they didn't happen.

Now, where I *do* feel sorry for people is when they get to the impound lot, cause it seems really disorganized and often people seem to get lots of wrong information from the workers there. I would have a full on meltdown at the impound lot based on some of the situations I've seen on the show.
