No, I described his logic perfectly. Pay & Display parking permits have very definite expiry dates/times clearly printed on the face of them. Here is a picture of a P&D permit below. Notice how it clearly states on the top left "Expiration Date" and "Expiration Time" with the date and time printed in the giant font directly below them? All the OP did was pay twice for the same approximate short block of parking time, not for one extended block of parking time like he should have. You can top up pre-paid phone minutes because they don't expire. The same does not apply to paid parking which anybody with any degree of common sense knows expires at a clearly identified date/time. You get a "double" for your failed argument.
