I don't wanna!

It is a beautiful morning. After suffering through a hot summer, it is cool with a little breeze blowing. A perfect morning to sit on the deck, sip a cup of coffee, read the paper, and relax.

Relax? Did I say relax? Not much of a chance of that once I read the story, front and center, in the News and Record.

It seems local attorney Kevin Morse amassed a large number of parking tickets that he didn't pay. He is now fighting the City's attempt to recover the $2300.00 in unpaid parking tickets. According to the paper, he just might win his case. He might win not because he didn't owe the money because of a computer glitch and was incorrectly billed or because the City ticketed the wrong car and he was out of the country so it couldn't be HIS car that was ticketed. He might win on a technicality over the timeframe in which the suit was brought.

First let's examine his reason for not paying his ticket. "Paying parking tickets wasn't something high on my agenda at the time."

Oh, and my FAVORITE quote -- "I may look like I'm just some a------ who doesn't want to pay his parking tickets." I'm going to assume the "a------" is "asshole" which the News and Record can't print in a story that's on A-1, but I can print here. Asshole. Uh, Kevin? You MAY look like you're just some asshole? Ain't no MAY about it. You DO look like an asshole. Based solely on this article, which admittedly gives me limited knowledge about you, I would say you ARE an asshole.

I could be wrong. He could be an absolute prince. After all, "At the time I amassed this group of parking tickets, my office was downtown," he said, explaining that he let his secretary use the space he was provided for the office. Awww. He's nice to his secretary.

He found the City's efforts to collect the parking tickets to be "upsetting." He felt he was mistreated by the collections staff. "...they're a bunch of bullies down there...and I don't like bullies." Boo hoo. If he'd paid his parking tickets he wouldn't have had anyone calling him to collect. He wouldn't have had to deal with the "bullies." Furthermore, this isn't the first time he's run up a bunch of parking tickets.

While he may think a front page story about his situation is a good thing, I would be totally embarassed. He's not out there seeking justice for some wrong commited to some poor innocent person. He's now out there, on the front page, showing himself to be a first-class jerk.

"Paying parking tickets wasn't something high on my agenda at the time." He needs to think about his priorities.

"I may look like I'm just some a------ who doesn't want to pay his parking tickets." No MAY about it.
