Well, I have all evening classes this semester so I refused to pay for a parking pass when I really did not need one. I arrived to campus at 4:20 on day for my 5:00 class. I wanted to get something to eat but knew I would probably get a parking ticket if I left my car.
Well, I had just came from work and I was a little tired so I decided to take a nap before class, thinking “they won’t ticket me if I am in my car.” Well, I woke up at 4:40 and to my surprise a parking ticket was blowing on my windsheild. I had gotten a ticket at 4:35pm! Only 5 minutes before waking up and the worst part was I didn’t even hear them!
I was so angry. I couldn’t believe that they would ticket someone sleeping in their car!
