  •  I got a parking ticket for a day that I could (0+ / 0-)

    prove I was not even on campus, and they excuse they gave me all the way up through various supervisors was "our software looks at a range of numbers..." and apparently that means they just send out bills almost randomly, assuming that parents will pay the bill so their kid can graduate. Not being your typical undergrad, I fought it until they let go of the bill, but I'm sure it happened to plenty of people.

      w/a cop going in the opposite direction.  He turned around.
      Pulled me over and said "'we made eye contact, you know I had to pull you over".  He ticketed me for some absurd violation. The judge smiled when I told him what the cop said and asked me if I'd settle for a parking ticket instead.
