The Parking Ticket Geek

The Geek is an idiot, who gets a lot of parking tickets, and knows how to fight back.

It seems people all over the world have problems with overly aggressive ticket writers.

One story that's gone viral globally takes place in Melbourne, Australia.

It seems this one gentleman parks, saunters over to the pay and display machine to get his receipt and when he returns to his vehicle, he's already receiving a parking ticket.

Ouch!

But the gentleman tries to fight his ticket with a hilarious letter to the City of Melbourne for what the offense of what he contends is "failure to pay for parking ticket within apparent allotted time of approximately 38 seconds from the time car was parked."


As funny as this letter is, perhaps the response from the city is even more hilarious.

Or should I say pathetic.

We'll let you decide.


Thanks to the many nice readers that tipped me off to the story as well as Consumerist Editor Meg Marco where I came across the story as well.
