Where You’re Most Likely to Get a Parking Ticket at the Beach
Unfortunately, this scenario has happened to me more times than I'd like to remember.
After searching for what seems like hours, I finally find a spot to park by the beach. I then try to guess how long my wife and I will be there. We always wind up staying longer than usual only to find a delightful piece of paper (a parking ticket) waiting for us when we get back. Of course I'm thrilled that my wallet will now be $31 lighter.
