Oopsies!

Today was NOT a great day!  Although, it could have been worse, it was not a very good start to the week.

Since when is there a no parking / handicap only parking space in front of the Shawville Post Office?  I've been parking in that spot forever, as many others do, and never noticed the sign!?  It MUST be new.  As luck would have it, a police officer was called to the Post Office for some reason and I found him standing near my car as I exited... Eek. 

Officer: "Ms., do you know why I'm standing here?"
Me: "No sir..."
Officer: "Look at the sign"
Me: "Oh my God, I'm so sorry... has that always been here?!"
Officer: "This is a $200 fine..."
Me: "... okay."
Officer: "I don't have time to deal with this right now."
Me: "Oh, thank you... so sorry!"
Officer: "You better get your windshield fixed"
Me: "Of course!"

Great! I have a piece of crap 1995 Chrysler Intrepid.  It runs well, and is in decent shape. It's cheap. But it has a cracked windshield... and has for the past 2 years.  I just couldn't bring myself to pay for a windshield knowing that as soon as I did the car would probably die the next day.  However, this is a small town.  The cop knows my car now, and if I don't get it fixed, I'm sure he'll track me down sooner or later.  I have an appointment for tomorrow... Goodbye $260 I could have spent on something else.  At least I didn't have to pay a $200 fine PLUS the new windshield, right?  I'll never park THERE again, that's for sure.

Here's a little song I had stuck in my head all day!  Enjoy!
