"The Bitch of Living"

The title is from a tune in the musical “Spring Awakening,” which won the Tony for Best Musical on Sunday night. I highly suggest checking out the soundtrack. Good stuff.

And now for the reason behind the title. I am very pissed off at this moment. Last night I came home after a long night at work. I wore a new black jumper I bought the day before. Underneath, I wore a white shirt. My favourite white shirt. When I took off the jumper, I thought my white shirt looked a little funny. I only had my little lamp on, though, so I attributed it to the lighting. But then I turned on my big light and found that my white shirt is now a purplish color where it was covered by my jumper. I’m not impressed. I was going to throw it straight in the washing machine, but of course there were still clothes in it from 3 days before when the upstairs people came down to do their laundry. It’s been THREE days. Not happy.

THEN, today I walked back to my car after class, and I saw a parking ticket as I approached. I was a little mad that I’d have to spend $6.00, since I’d only been parked 2 hours and 10 minutes, when the sign says 2 hours allowed, but sucked it up. But when I picked up the parking ticket, I found that it was $50.00 (FIFTY!) *&^#ing dollars. WTF? It said that I had parked in a zone where parking was prohibited. There’s a No Parking sign right beside the 2 hour sign, and half of my car was in the 2 hour sign, the other half in the no parking. I thought I’d be okay because I wasn’t blocking a driveway, fire hydrant or anything, and there was still a full car-length behind me to the curb. I’m getting a $50.00 parking ticket for nothing! $50.00!!!!!!!!!!! ARGHGGHGGGHGHGHGHGHGHGH! And you know when they give you the ticket and beside the fine in little letters it says, “Pay $6.00 if within 14 days of ticket issue date.” That doesn’t apply to my ticket. Beside my $50.00, in big red letters, it says, “No reduction allowed.” So that’s $50.00 I don’t have, a $40.00 shirt possibly ruined, and I’ll be pissed off for the rest of the day. What the hell?
