Baltimore is such a dirt city. I parked my car legally on the street, where there were no signs indicating that I couldn't park there. I came back a little over a day later, and they had put up temporary NO PARKING signs, and given me (as well as several other cars parked on the street) a $27 ticket. How hard would it be for them to give a warning a couple days in advance?

Also, it's usually impossible to find parking on the street I live on, which is why I only go shopping at night, when there's a better chance I will return to find a spot. When I can't park on this street, there is one not too far away that I use as my reserve, since it almost always has something available. I pulled by it the other night, looking for a spot, and saw that now only residents can park on that street. I think it took me another 20 minutes to find a space.

At least I'll be home in less than a week. I'm not staying in this place for one second after I graduate.
