PreMortem: So even if you patronize the store you have to pay a $5 parking fee? wtf? And then get shaken down for $115?
gilgigamesh: In case it wasn't obvious, I can personally attest that the guys who run this store and pretty much anyone who patronizes it are scum.The world would be a better place if the doors were barred during peak business hours and it was burned to the ground.

ZAZ: It's a weird charge, but obstructing an ambulance on private property may not be a crime. I don't think it is where I live because nobody thought we needed a law on the subject.So even if you patronize the store you have to pay a $5 parking fee? wtf?Read UCLA professor Donald Shoup's writings on parking for arguments in favor of making parking non-free in general.

It's unbundling a cost that we're accustomed to having bundled.
trivial use of my dark powers: That wasn't the defense of the guy who booted the ambulance--it was the owner's explanation. FTFA, it sounds to me like he's trying to deflect all blame on that one guy and get the spotlight off of his parking racket.Barstid. How much do you want to bet he summarily fired anyone who missed a chance to boot a vehicle for any reason?
