Stay classy …

Dear anonymous D6-using car owner,

I know not who you are, and I hope I never again meet you. I would, however, like to thank you. Not only did you attempt (and fail) to take two parking spots for your own vehicle, but you also managed to hit my own car with your door. Now, any decent human would have contacted parking services, left their insurance card or anything of the like. You, however, did none of these. Instead, judging from the three scuff marks and crack in my mirror, you took a second and a third swing with your door and then left.

Sir or madam, thank you for your work. You are a classy and respectful individual and have put me $290 in debt. Just know, from now on I intend to make a daily trip to the lot and record everybody’s license plate numbers.
