Then I was sick, again, and feared that I might have strep throat, again. So I left work early and went to the "doctor" (aka the quick care walk-in clinic). Because I was too lazy to pull into the parking ramp, I parked at a meter with a 30 minute limit knowing that I would most certainly be more than 30 minutes. Basically, the cost of the ticket was worth my laziness. I am irrational when I'm not feeling well. Irrational because I would have had my ramp ticket validated. Irrational because the meter really wasn't any closer than pulling into the ramp.
They told me I didn't have strep, but apparently I get a more "rare" kind of strep that the rapid test doesn't detect. So they called me back 5 days later to tell me that it was, in fact, strep.
Anyway when I came out, I was unsurprised when I found a ticket. I pulled it off the windshield and didn't even look at it until I got home.
How fortunate? I can afford that.
