I’ve never been one to spontaneously overindulge. If and when I’m enjoying a few (many) beverages, I usually prepare for it ahead of time with a ride planned, designated driver, or a cab. There are some folks however, who find themselves incapable of taking the vehicle home at the end of the evening and need to make a choice. Just so we’re clear, the choice should never be getting behind the wheel – one ought to make a safer choice .. like this.
Consider this note: “Please take pity on me. I walked home … Safe choices.”
The parking officer, obviously appreciates the effort, and the overall choice, so decides to let this person off the hook.
This way, everyone gets all the great feels.
