What's the opposite of a snowflake?

March 7th, 2013 at 05:48 am

Stupid tax, I guess.

I just wrote a $105 check for a having my car towed on a snow day. I thought I was following the rules, but I was reading them the wrong way. I thought I was SUPPOSED to park on the even side on even days. Instead, it is NO parking on the even side on even days. Sheesh! I looked up the rules on the website and it is clear. My brain just switched it for some reason.

Very dispiriting, especially now when I am trying to conserve money for the taxes and the rug payment.

I saw the ticket this morning when I was going to move my car (to the wrong side!) Confused, I decided to just drive to work, since I didn't know where I was supposed to park. On the way, I consoled myself with breakfast at Starbuck's ($6). I know, I know, why throw MORE money away? But such was my mood.

At least I feel better now that I know what I did wrong. I will use having the car here today as an opportunity -- to get a haircut with my old hairdresser, to get cheaper gas, to stay a bit longer today to get some extra stuff done.

The weather is much better today and it was an easy ride into work.

I didn't get much sleep last night, but it was not my usual insomnia. My upstairs neighbors were having a big fight in the wee hours of the morning. I feel for them -- I've been there -- but they were LOUD! I couldn't tell what they were saying, but it was all, YOU, YOU, YOU! Isn't it always? Smile I hope they have resolved whatever the issue was and we can all get some sleep tonight.

    Oh darn. That isn't fun. I'm glad you have it figured out now. Maybe a $100 snowflake will come your way to compensate for that?!

    Bummer on the tow! I used to live in the city and some of the parking signs just made me scratch my head in confusion.

    Not even a warning ticket the first time? City revenue must be down, I guess.

    No, and not a break for having an out-of-county license plate. They are serious about city revenue here.
