I had to take a class this summer (and one this fall) to completely finish my degree. I thought I was too smart for the CSUN parking patrol officers and decided not to pay for the $180 summer parking pass.
I only had class twice a week so I figured that the probability of getting a ticket was slim to none.
Plus I like to beat the system. (Especially after paying $2300 for a 5 credit class).
Regardless of my calculated parking, on the last day of class I found a pink slip on my windshield. After mumbling a few choice words directed at the parking officers, I was somewhat relieved to find that my citation was only $45.
I was angry but as I sat at my desk to write the check out, I rationalized that I received an entire semester of parking for $45. That is a $135 savings.
Take that CSUN.
Instead of writing obscenities on the envelope I did this instead:
I win again. amen.
