when parking in a public lot downtown, do you:
[A] put your debit card in the parking card machine,
get an official receipt,
and then place the officially printed receipt on the hood of your car.
[B] give $20 cash (for a $10 lot) to the ginormous, unofficial looking man who walks up to your car and tells you the parking machine doesn't work on the weekends.
result of choice A:
result of choice B:
[if you picked B, you're a sucker too.]
