RM50 for 2 hours parking

A few days ago I was at this office building for a meeting. I parked my car in the basement carpark and the machine gave me a ticket that looked something like this one from KLCC.

So fine... I went for my meeting and about two hours later I was ready to leave. I first headed to the Auto-pay machine to pay for parking. I put in the card and the machine said I needed to pay about RM4.00.

Fair enough, I put in a RM5.00 note and soon after the change came out. I took the change out of the machine and went down the elevator into the basement where my car was parked.

Then as I was walking towards my car... I noticed something. What did I miss out?

Can you guys guess?

I TOOK MY CHANGE BUT I LEFT MY PARKING TICKET IN THE MACHINE!!!

I rushed back up to get it praying that it would be there but by the time I got back, it was missing. Someone had already taken it. Why would someone wanna take my parking ticket? To save his RM4.00 on parking?

So I went back down and had to pay the penalty for losing my ticket. The penalty... RM50.00 for just 2 hours parking.

Aihh.. I guess they call this tuition fees.

Something similar nearly happened to me before. I was in Mid-Valley when it happened, I actually lost the ticket the moment I stepped down from the car and only realized it 5 minutes later when I was on a date. My date was paranoid about it but I was acting all cool and all till we were about to leave.

Walked up to the ticketing office, looked for the supervisor and told him that I am foreign to this place and I lost my ticket; I do not have enough cash with me to pay for the fine. Nice guy, lucky me. He gave me a form to fill up and gave me a new ticket for Rm1 :D

He tought me the way to not pay fines in shopping malls..this might work for everyone out there though.

The excuse? "I paid my ticket but I dropped the ticket into the escalator and I could not retrieve it."

:D
