Today did not start out good.
First I was up late watching the Lakers win in 3/OT, great game, from the night before.
Next as I was running late for work I had to fill up my car, 76$.
Finally I just found out that my dog had decided to leave me a present from the night before. Not a nice little circle or coil, but some gross @$@ "stuff"
Yet everything faded into the past when I saw this.
I was at the ATM depositing a few checks while I watched a car pull up and "park" right next to the ATM. This was not a parking spot by any means, it was in fact a very busy street in the parking lot. There was an ample amount of parking spots close to the ATM but this person belived they were better than everyone else and did not FEEL they had to walk the extra 15 feet to use the ATM. So as I finished up at the ATM I saw them....
A police officer had stopped directly behind the illegally parked car with his lights on. For fear of the upcoming ticket the owner of the "parked" car rushed back inside the car and started to drive off.
The police officer then turned on his loud speaker and demanded the driver immediately get out of the car. Yet the car continued forward until it found a parking spot no less than 15 feet away.
At this point I knew my day was about to turn around.
The police officer threw open his door with his gun drawn as he headed towards the now legally parked car. The driver finally got out of the car practically frozen with fear and crying like a newborn baby. The police officer made the driver get down to his knees while he cuffed him and brought him back to the back of his car.
I left at this point wondering if the driver would ever illegally park again, I bet not.
