A Pennsylvania man who was rebuffed when he tried to pay a $25 parking ticket he owed to his borough entirely in pennies should’ve been able to use those coins, a local official said, but really, it was kind of rude for him to do so.
The handyman had found the $25 ticket on his work truck, after he parked it the wrong way on a street while he was picking up some tools at a house for about 10 minutes, he told the Chambersburg Public Opinion, and was annoyed at the amount.
“I just thought the amount of the ticket was ridiculous. I wasn’t parked at a hydrant, wasn’t blocking traffic or emergency vehicles,” he said.
He decided to use coins to tick someone off.
“I work too hard for my money and thought it would be fun to get back at someone, inconvenience them like they inconvenienced me,” he told the paper.
