Few months back, 'had parked our vehicle close to a weekend bazaar, after carefully checking for the parking sign. On return, we were unpleasantly surprised to to find a parking notice! Regrettably, we 'discovered' that the parking sign did mention the words "parking ticket" - but way different to the normal format!
Despite our repeated requests for the charge to be waived, we were required to attend court to defend charges. With all the deliberations with the other side proving futile, the matter was listed for hearing at the higher court, a few months later. Surprisingly, just 2 days prior to the hearing, the matter was "unconditionally" withdrawn, by the other side.
In hindsight, the whole process was not worth it, in terms of time spent in follow up, appearing at different sessions and preparing briefs. On the other hand, its very reassuring and comforting within!
The calm within, is what am trying to retain, without any ripples, once any such episode is over ... fight or flight !!
