Who Really Deserves the Parking Ticket?

Outside of our office, there is parking on the street from 9AM to 4PM. As most of you know, working hours tend to be a little longer than the 4PM time which creates a dilemma for some at work. If I choose to park on the street which is closer than parking a block away on a side street, will I remember to move my car before 4PM so I don't get a $70 ticket?

So, yesterday I was leaving our almost always full parking lot and I couldn't get out of the parking lot. Why? Because the parking ticket guy was parked illegally in front of the parking lot entrance giving 3 people a parking ticket for being there after 4PM.

It all seems a little comical, unjust, and ironic all at the same time. But I know it felt more unjust to my two co-workers who got a ticket :-(

Part of me wanted to honk, part of me wanted to say he had no business giving others a ticket 'cause he was blocking traffic, and part of me understood that he was doing his job. Oh, the moral dilemmas!
