Today started off a little rough. I woke up early to move my car so that the street cleaner could do its thing. Unfortunately, when I turned the key, I got nothing. My battery was dead. Despite my best efforts I was unable to find anyone to give me a jump and resorted to calling AAA. However, they told me that it was going to be 30 minutes before they could send someone out to my location and within that 30-minute time frame I was issued a ticket. So that concludes the amazing story of my first parking ticket in Chicago.
