Having an annoying morning dealing with bureaucratic bullshit today. Late last week, Vivian got a parking fine for parking on our own street. Half of it was converted to permit parking a few years ago, and we were issued with permit stickers at the time, but because we were about to switch cars we didn’t apply the stickers. By the time we switched cars… we’d misplaced the stickers 🙈 I did warn Viv that it’d be safer if he parked exclusively on the non-permit side of the street, but noooooo, he insisted that council never enforces the rules and it’s totally fine if he parks on our side. Well, now he’s got fined, guess whose job it somehow is to try to appeal this fine to council 🙈🙈🙈 And it seems like I need so much documentation to prove why we should be allowed to park here, and why I’m allowed to appeal on Viv’s behalf, and ugh…
