Parking Meters

Rows of parking meters have lined the sidewalks of New York City for decades, but no longer. Now New York has those awful machines in the middle of blocks where you have to get a slip of paper to stick in your windshield. They also have these in Los Angeles. What special hell is New York becoming? Anyway, the reason this sucks is that the old parking meters were great because sometimes they would still have time on them or sometimes they were broken and then you'd get to park for free. It felt like winning the lottery when you pulled into a broken meter. That's no longer possible. There's no use in dreaming that dream anymore. All our dreams are dead.
