Touch and go at temporary prison’
On Saturday at 2.30pm, I joined an orderly group of nice people waiting to pay their parking ticket, which would allow them to exit this “temporary prison” — only to find not all of the machines were working,
I started to bite my nails; any longer in this queue and I would end up having to pay a fine of $80 for staying beyond my allotted time.
I finally got to the front, tried to use my card, and was rejected twice. I used my debit card, had success and hurried to my car to join the other queue of cars trying to get through the barrier, which seemed to be asleep. Remember, we have only ten minutes to get out.
Hurrah, I got out and went home for a stiff drink; too much excitement for a senior citizen.
Will take the bus next time.
