I paid it, dammit.

So I bit the bullet and paid the dumbass parking ticket.

But I didn't want to. And it wasn't fun.

But I did leave a nice little message on my check... THAT was kind of fun...

Yes, I really did this.


UPDATE:
I really didn't give a flying fuck if they couldn't cash it, but Mike says that I better be careful because they might not deposit it (and therefore charge more, come after me, etc, etc.)

Call me chicken, but to save myself a potential headache (& more money), I re-opened my envelope and put a line through the word "Fucking" and initialed it.

So the check is now properly made out to "The City of Fucking L.A."

Did you really send that off. I don't know that they'll be able to bank that sweetie? LOL!

Posted by: Jessica Parker at March 1, 2003 02:23 PM

Yes, I really did send it (well it's all stamped and ready to go for Monday, anyway).

And I really don't give a flying fuck if they can't deposit it. I paid it, dammit.

Posted by: edd at March 1, 2003 05:17 PM

Oh, thats just priceless. When I was in College my roomates and I would always put dumb stuff down in the comment line when we'd write our checks for certain things. The pizza guy got pissed when I put BJ there, even though I gave him a nice tip. ;)

Posted by: Kevin at March 1, 2003 08:01 PM

Heh..that's awesome. I just hope they can cash it...

Posted by: Michael Doss at March 1, 2003 10:24 PM


In NY, last year sometime there was a judge that actually fined someone for doing something similar. I was a little afraid, because I received a parking ticket for parking in front of a fire hydrant... Only when I parked there, I couldn't see it because there was snow piled on top of it...

In the memo line, I put "to pay bullshit fine, enjoy the donuts".

So, this judge issues people (not me, thankfully) fines for indecency or contempt or something like that... I wish I saved the yahoo link to the story.

Well even if you commented out the line, the message is stll there for them to read. A+

Posted by: Cat at March 2, 2003 02:53 PM

omg, that's something I totally would do. I bet they will cash it, or they could be total dicks about it, but you did pay it, not much they can do about it. lol

...then there was the bad-ass motorcycle cop who pulled me over for starting my walk through the intersection agains the blinking red hand. The fine, you ask? SEVENTY BLINKING DOLLARS.

My state SO doesn't take checks when paying for tickets, cash, cashier's check, or money orders only!!!

Posted by: Drew at March 3, 2003 02:25 PM

Jason, I think I got the checks from some designer check place. I am moving, so everything is packed up... they're actually Sesame Street checks... with Elmo, Big Bird, the Count, etc.

The most amusing thing to me was Grover's perky, smiling face all over this thing. For some reason, I now have this mental image of Grover talking about "The City of Fucking L.A." - it's an interesting juxtaposition!

Thanks for the chortle!
