For the sake of 10 cents

Yesterday morning, went to town to do some payment for the company. Decided to drop by Guardian to buy something, and I know I will be quick. Happy when I found a parking - walking distance to Guardian. Got down and left hurriedly, knowing that I have not insert any coins into the parking meter (there were 10 minutes left on the meter and I thought it will be enough). Well, I thought it will only takes me a minute since I already know what to buy.

When I went back to my car after my quickie shopping, I saw 'that' man in 'that' uniform standing next to my car. DAMN IT ! I was just late by a few sec. and he had already plastered 'that' piece of paper onto my windscreen.


Hate to see it, but I know, it is my fault ;(
.
He must be standing next to my car waiting for the meter to turn 0.00. My clock shows 10.43 too when I arrived at my car.

RM10 fined. If only I put in another 10 cents, I can save RM9.90. I know, it is my fault. But still ... DAMN IT !

Note : This is my 2nd summons. The 1st one was in year 2008 for the same offence. Never learnt, ya ! hehe

  1. If it was the type of machine that dispenses parking tickets, you would have saved your RM10 fine. It happened to me before. That man in uniform has just had the summon printed out when I walked back to my car. I quickly went to the machine and bought a parking ticket. I had to pay a visit to their office to void the summon but it saved me RM30. :P

  17. Aiyo... so bad luck... but RM10 is cheap lor. Here in KL I think is RM30. I kena once before - totally forgotten to buy the parking ticket!!! Why? Because that place was always free parking, totally forgotten implemented parking charges already.

  26. These uniformed fellars in Seremban are super efficient 1. Next time better not "han" your 10sen haha. One thing I like abt the parking system in Sban is, you can pay 10sen for 10mins, 20sen for 20mins and so on, unlike other towns where the min charge is 50sen.
