Parking authority has taken my girlfriends car hostage, at an amount we don't have a quarter of - due in 48 hours -we are both imunno-deficient, with the car probably being our only home by years end as benefits expire.
ill try to keep my story brief and to the point; It is becoming increasinly difficult to remain undaunted by rejection and a looming deadline.
We live in a section of the city of Reading that is primarily residential. My girlfriend and I both suffer from heatlh conditions that render special care to be an absolute necessity on the rarity we go out into public ; the apprehension and anxiety caused by such outings is a nightmare.
After racking up some parking tickets that were technically written for the wrong make , and therefore invalid, our neighbor had approached us with a petition to sign in order to flip the street designation to residential, which we signed immediately. Our tickets and the presence of the parking authority faded into the background.
As the coronavirus continues to test the resolve of people around the globe, the terrifying aspect of the situation continues to be its refusal to acqueise to human demands - whether it be a polite request to slow down before the holiday season, or a dejected plea for mercy, so on - and right now the outward intentions of the covid-19 novel corona virus seem nothing short of a true disaster due to its ability to impose its will despite less than perfect but adequate preparation time on behalf of human beings across the globe. It appears as if we were doing nothing except wait for the virus to become smarter, better, meaner.
That's exactly what it did and is continuing to do.
With our mindset and spirits clearly in mind, the Reading Area Parking Authority took this opportunity to try to jolt us back into real, normal life via an otherwise-unexplained barnacle freshly deposited atop the windshield a few days ago.
