    ok maybe i'm a bit stressy at the moment, my nans in hospital and we're all kind of worried and rather stress, shes having her operation today :cry:

    ANYWAY - yesterday, me maddi and james (oh) decided to get some fresh air and blow the cobwebs away as such and go into town and have walk round and a bit of lunch, we always park in the same place - back of bhs - for £1 on a sunday, parkings quite expensive where we are but not too bad and i don't mind paying, anyhow, the machine was broke as we went in, and a note saying please pay at boothe on the way out - normally its take a ticket- pay at machine and put ticket in on the way out - if this makes sense.

    so we got back to the car three hours later and james went to the parking attendant and asked how much and he said £4 - bloody cheek i couldn't believe it and loads of people were going out without paying. the attendent then said "im not ripping you off or making money" - yeah right the cash normal goes in the machine - so james said 'we've onyl got £3 cash'[ - a lie but hey, so the attendent said he'll take that.

    i couldn't believe it when james come back to the car and told me, i'm sure the guy was taking the pee out of us and pocketing the money :grr: that will teach me for being too honest!

    ok rant over - thanks guys, sorry its length!!

    You could report it to the parking people who own the car park.
