We’ve all be victim to the cruel bite of the parking ticket officer. You could be late by five minutes or just rocking up with a fistful of shopping bags and the buggers probably wouldn’t blink when handing you an $80 fine. It takes a certain type of person to be a parking ticket inspector, and let’s just say they’re not the type of people I’d like to crack open a cold one with.

You’d think that ambo’s, police and the fire services would cop an exemption from unjust fines but according to a disgruntled nurse looks like they’re just as susceptible as anyone.
Sally Plummer recently spoke to Good Morning Britain about how she was charged £80 for parking after she’d already had mandatory parking fees deducted from her wages because she stayed after her shift due to her patient going into cardiac arrest.
“We would have a certain amount of money taken out of our wages which wasn’t a problem, we didn’t mind alongside other hospital staff paying for parking,” Sally said.
“But you’re not guaranteed a parking space so therefore have to park in public parking spaces.
“In the end, I had to pay £80 on top.”
Imagine having to pay a parking fee where you aren’t guaranteed a park and if you do have to risk parking in public spaces, they won’t give a shit that you’re late even though you’ve been saving lives.
A bloody disgrace, our medical professionals deserve better.
