that what i was thinking. you need to provide a stub proving you paid BEFORE you got ticketed. 15 min is a pretty big time difference to be off.

lets ignore that discrepency for a sec, you could have argued the attendant was blind, as you had proof of payment.

RE: Hurricane & Turbo E

I was actually pacing back and forth while on the phone. I was not paying attention to my car (though in retrospect everything is 20/20). It was 8 minutes between when I parked and got the ticket. Not 15 minutes. I'm not sure if you have had the chance to call into a CC company by phone but it there is a hold time and the time it gets through verification.

If you add up the times, it is actually rather quick for that to happen.

** Edit:

Ticket got cancelled.

these parking companies are a bunch of leeches.

impark charged my credit card at my work parking lot on a day i wasnt even working.

i was no where near that parking lot the day they charged the card... let alone the fact that the credit card that was charged is sitting at my cousins house in california, so im curious how i managed to swipe my own credit card when it was sitting in san francisco and i wasnt even at work that day.

fuck impark.

That's... odd. They may be slimey, but I don't see how they could have done this.

Are you sure you're not looking at the posted date rather than the transaction date?

about 10yrs ago before the machines approved the card right away I used a friends cancelled card to pay for my tickets everyday. Worked for 3 years no questions asked and then they got smart. Just like the skytrain day pass you used to scratch the dates and if you were not checked you wouldn't scratch it.

I so miss those days

You need to figure out which part of the property belongs to the city, and which part belongs to the house owner. In Vancouver, if there is a sidewalk, the sidewalk, and any grass between the sidewalk and road belongs to the city.

If there is no curb/sidewalk - you can do whatever - drive onto the middle of your lawn, etc - because it belongs to the house owner.

Yeah.. Thats the weird part. There is NO sidewalk. Just a a small rounded old ass curb where the grass starts. I guess technically the city owns that 2.5 foot portion of grass before the trees / my lawn.. So gay.. Paid the ticket since it was cheap and my times more valuble than the trouble of disputing a parking ticket, but if it happens again ill defiantly look into what belong to the city & dispute if i can

What is your point? Pace back and forth within eyesight of your car, or go sit in it. It's common sense. I have not only called my credit card company before, but I have been in the exact same situation as you on multiple occasions. I have even seen the enforcement guy coming, and interjected before he had a chance to write me a ticket.

Glad they cancelled it for you.

I'm not sure why you seem so butthurt about my story.

It's simply just that. My story.

I understand that I probably should have been paying more attention to my car but then again, having my credit card rejected on a small purposes raises flags about someone who has potentially stolen my CC info. I was more worried about that than I was about an enforcement guy ticketing my car.

What is YOUR point?

To exercise common sense in retrospect? Well thanks, Captain Obvious. I'll be sure to do those things the next time it comes up.

lol this reminds of last night i was parking on the street on alexandra road and i went to pay the parking meter that issues the parking ticket, it was 8:22 so i only put in a dollar for 30 mins (free after 9) when i put the dollar in, the meter says the ticket will expire at 8:10! called the "automated service" and entered the meter number, then the automated voice just said "goodbye" and hung up!

Butthurt? What are you 8 years old?

I could care less about your story. It was not relevant to this thread, as you seemed to have thought, so I called you out. Are you 'butthurt' for getting called out?

Keep making excuses all you want; parking enforcement did nothing wrong.

You are lucky they cancelled the ticket.

Damn, you really called me out. I'm really not sure what to do with myself anymore....

You could care less about my story? Then why "call me out" at all? Or better yet, why keep replying to me?

A tad bit ironic, don't you think?

P.S.

If the collectors call you, just tell them you wish to be contacted only through writing. According to BC Law, you have the right of being communicated to through writing instead.

I wasnt referring to your urban dictionary, b-boy circle, after school knife fight definition of the phrase, so the quotations are just making you look stupid.

In the real world, its actually a phrase used by grownups to describe a situation where someone feels another persons contribution is dishonest, deceiving, or unworthy in general and wants them to answer for it.

I feel bad for you, because you cant even accept the facts like a man, and move on. Its really a huge step in a persons life when they can laugh off a mistake, and carry on. Apparently its not your time yetoh well.

I didnt care about your story - I did on the other hand, care about your empty, ignorant contribution to the thread. So I guess the irony is lost on me.

If you dont like me replying, then feel free to leave the conversation anytime.

Cheers.

Please tell me what my definition of calling out someone is vs. yours because that was clearly lost on me. By how you've defined it, its the very much the same.

Not accepting the facts like a man? Really? I accepted the facts when I specifically said "I was not paying attention to my car" and once again when I said "I understand that I probably should have been paying more attention to my car". I was in the PROCESS of getting a receipt/pushing the transaction through when I got the ticket. It could not have been more than 10 secs for the enforcement guy write and issue the ticket.

Why don't we hear your side of the story? OH WAIT. You weren't there so you're really just going by speculation and assumptions (at best).

So let's summarize here, you think that my post is "dishonest, deceiving, or unworthy". Wowzers, did you come up with that all on your own? From what I see, it's you who can't accept the facts.

I am not saying that the parking enforcement guy was wrong to have issued me to ticket. Not at all. Provided the circumstances and his job, he did what he should have done. He saw a car that did not have a receipt so he issued a ticket. However, you can't expect someone to just pay something they don't feel is just. Especially when the person was not trying to do anything wrong and was, in fact, trying to rectify the situation.

At the end of the day, it must suck thinking the world is inherently evil and that people are go about their day trying to be dishonest and deceiving. I just hope for you that you can get past that.

This has already gone too far and strayed way too off topic. This will be my last post here and should you want to continue, please feel free to PM me.
