Lovely Rita, meter maid...

Kick her in the ass.

Okay, we all know that when you park on the street, you feed the meter or risk getting a ticket. Personally, I think if you take a gamble you deserve a ticket. Generally speaking, it’s not a good idea to break the law.

Having said all of the above, laws can be very subjective, except when it comes to parking tickets. Every day I pass this knobby kneed, black sock wearing Nazi standing around with her pad, waiting for the meters to expire. Today I saw her giggle the thing as if she was going to shake off the last minute. Fucking bitch. Luckily, I had a quarter and slipped it into the meter right in front of her. “Is this your car” she asks. “Nope, it’s my friend’s car" I replied. “Well, you’re not supposed to do that” she screamed. “Yeah, neither are you, shit head”.

I clearly ruined her day. Good. I hate people that live to create misery for others. She isn’t feeling bad, or waiting five seconds. She is standing there hoping to “catch” someone who waited an extra two minutes for the doctor. That’s bullshit. I don’t ever believe that was the intent of the law. Enforce the law with reason and passion, not sadism.

Come on. Drop in a coin and ruin a meter maid’s day.

Ok, my annoyance at the previous commenter's obvious lack of grasp of the English language aside...*sigh*...I fucking hate that silly internet abbreviation shit.

Anyway, good for you.

I saw an episode of "Jackass" once where one of the guys dressed up as the "Parking Fairy" and purposefully flaunted in front of a meter maid, plugging strangers' meters until he got chased away.

Well, that's just ridiculous. Waiting around for parking meters to expire....sheesh. Aren't there some real criminals that need catching? And to give you shit about dropping a quarter in the meter? Sounds like she needs to get laid. Right. Now.

I thwart those fothermuckers whenever I can, too. Putting quarters in when needed.

The best thing you can do if you're getting a ticket is ignore them. They absolutely FEED on people who get frustrated and yell at them. One time I looked at the ticket, looked at the meter maid and said archly "That's more than you make all day, honey..." and got in the car. It was so mean, but it felt good.

I love what you it a "random act of kindness" or "paying it forward". Whatever. I would've liked to have seen the look on her face!

One question, though? You wrote "Today I saw her giggle the thing..." How, exactly, does one go about "giggling" a parking meter? And does it know its being "giggled"?

Around midtown where I work there are new parking meters to thwart people like you. One big meter per half block, you slip in your CC or quarters and get back a slip of paper that goes on your dash. Can't save someone now unless they leave their car unlocked.
The Interceptors still drive around with the long stick and chalk to mark the tires. Maybe there's something in that you can still work with.
