Ever since I got back to work about 7 weeks ago, it has been hard to find a parking spot, because somebody in the parking department of the town I work in, thought it necessary to close the parking spots we were using. They were free you see, and they want the money coming in from paid parking. Or, we could use public transport to come to work! Which is a joke of course, since we are the drivers driving the first shifts!
Be that as it may however, until now I have been able to find parking places every day. I have had to pay twice when no spot was to be found, but all other times I was in luck. And recently I found the perfect spot.
This morning however, the perfect spot seemed quite tiny. I have a tiny car, but even then I felt I was living on the edge. And today at work we were talking about it as well. About how until now I had been lucky. About how the traffic wardens didn't come out as often anymore.
I walked to my car after work and saw it from a distance: the little notice under my windscreen wipers. My luck had run out. I had parked too close to the crossing (as I had already feared) and was fined 500 kroner! Which is money I would have preferred to use on other things. Ah well, live and learn I guess. Tomorrow I will have to scout around for a better place still!
