Well you probably know more about this than I do so here are the pictures and you can judge for yourself.

There were only two signs. The one above is probably saying that there's no parking 4pm-6pm mon-fri. So it doesn't affect me as it was Saturday.

If you look in the very right of this picture you can see the legs of the sign. The sign is at roughly the halfway mark of my car. Putting half of my car before the sign and half behind the sign. I'm thinking now, that he gave me the ticket because of that. But there must have been room for 4 cars behind mine before you hit the corner.
I know people make mistakes. I make mistakes at my job all the time. However, I never said that he should lose his job for making a mistake.
In my original post I was talking about the possibility of the parking official giving the ticket simply because they knew that it would be highly unlikely and unfeasible for me to fight it. And if that were true, that they should lose their job. But your right, even if that were true he still probably wouldn't lose his job.
I know its just a minor parking ticket and I know its only $40 bucks. Judging by your posts, I'm guessing you are or were employed by the PEO at one time, so I apologize if I antagonized you. However, I absolutely guarantee, that if you had received a $40 dollar late fee from your credit card company even though you made all your payments on time, because of a mess up by the credit card company, and you had to go through the same kind of troubles and effort to fix it, that you would be just as pissed.Fox1971 wrote: ↑
It is just a minor parking ticket, not an eviction notice so settle down. You are just creating stress for yourself. And what if you had not missed the "lil worm"? How would things have been different? Would you have bullied the "jerk" with your razor wit until he ran away? Would you have assaulted him? Please elaborate on what you would have done because I am most curious.
To satisfy your curiosity, no I would not have bullied him and no I would definitely not have assaulted him. I'd have been pissed for sure, can't deny that. But I would tried to remain nice and reason with the person. Mainly, I would just be trying to understand why he was giving me a ticket. I'd probably ask him to at least give me the two bucks back that I spent on the parking anyway lol.
Maybe I shouldn't have referred to the person as a "lil worm", my apologies.
Well first of all, I didn't know why the ticket was given and couldn't understand, so I technically could not have accepted responsibility. I did consider the possibility that I was in the wrong, hence those 3 scenarios I thought out.
Probably the best advice one could give. Probably spent at least two hours posting on rfd about this, could have made that money back working overtime. But its not about the money. It's the principle, if you pay for the parking, you shouldn't be getting a ticket.
Anyways, if you could look at the pictures I posted and give me your opinion, I'd appreciate it. Tried calling the TAGS number 20 times today throughout the day and couldn't get through once.
