So on August 4, I wrote and sent a letter to my “friends” at the Los Angeles Parking Violations Bureau contesting the totally bullshit ticket that was supposedly issued to my vehicle way back in June.
If you don’t remember the story, basically, I received a parking ticket in the mail for being illegally parked somewhere I wasn’t… on a day & time where I was at work and parked in my parking space in a private lot. (My workplace is nowhere in the vicinity of where the ticket was issued.)
So I refused to pay the ticket (so no new obscene check was written) and I wrote a letter contesting the ticket, even getting a letter from BossMan to vouch that I was indeed at work on that day & time (and that I always drove myself to work and parked in my own parking space).
So today, I got a reply in the mail from them and I got scared because the envelope was bulging.
They returned my letter, the letter from my boss, and the envelope that these items were mailed in with a note attached at the top which read:
We have received your correspondence regarding the parking ticket issued to your vehicle. Unfortunately, the information you supplied does not indicate the ticket number or vehicle license plate number.
For the record, if you flip to the front page of my letter, the FIRST LINE of text underneath the Parking Violations Bureau address is a line that says “Re: Ticket # 101xxxxxxx”
I’m going to highlight the ticket #, draw stars around it, maybe paste some stickers and post-its around it to show them that I did indeed supply the damn ticket # on my correspondence. If I could send it back to them electronically, I would have made it a flashing, animated marquee, that would scroll slowly across the monitor.
What a freaking waste of time, energy, resources, and postage.
Maybe I can find someone to donate a booger or two I can send back with their stupid letter.
