Parking Meter

Recently while in a visit to Boston…I was waiting for my wife to come out of a shop…I noticed a parking meter with a paper sack over it upon which was written: “Broken.”

A skeptical parking officer comes down the street and removed the bag, inserted a quarter in the meter and turned the dial. It worked perfectly. As the officer began to write a parking ticket, the apparent car owner, rushed out of a nearby building.

“What are you doing?” he yelled after a quick glance at the meter. “There’s plenty of time left!”


Those of you who have been to Boston…know the parking conditions there…and can appreciate this humor!
