Letter to Parking Jackass #1

Dear jackass in the truck on Lincoln,

I was parked in the metered spot behind your truck at about 8:30 last night. The meter at my spot was broken, and I was almost out of quarters, so I was relieved when I saw you get into your car. I jumped back in my car and waited for you to pull out so I could take a non-broken metered spot. I might have been being anal (Removed for bad grammar by grammar police). It was only a half hour till ’til the meter was free. I probably should have just flown in the face of danger and taken my chance on making it ticket-free to 9pm. But, being the law abiding citizen I am, I decided instead to wait for you to move. And wait. And wait. And wait. After about 5 minutes I gave up. I unearthed a grocery bag from the backseat, wrote a note that the meter was broken, and tied it around the meter. As soon as I completed doing this, you drove away. Thanks a lot for the kick in the pants.

    Maybe you’re still groggy from whoopin’ it up last night but I’d like to point out that “I might have been being anal.” is redundant and “till” should actually be “’til.”

    Good Morning, Grammar police!

    You weren’t joking around about that drinking game. Fuk, I better start watching my mouth. Or figure out a way to incorporate grammar check into MT.

    “…And put my out of a job?”

    Man, we need to check our hiring policies.
