The woman who kneeled for 30 mins to avoid paying $100

I came across this story at asiaone motoring and found it so hilarious I thought I should share it with readers of this blog as well. Its about a woman who parked at a carpark with full knowledge that her car could be clamped because there was a huge sign saying 'private property' and that unauthorized parking will result in the car being wheel clamped. And she did get wheel clamped but went to the extent of begging the attendant to unclamp her car without paying the fine. This is absolute Hollywood material..

So she parked sort of illegally since it was private property, parking attendant comes and clamps her wheel since she parked for more than 15 minutes and initially came with $100 dollars in hand but refused to pay. I don't really bother about what people say about her having a domestic helper or whether she drives a 'mid-ranged Continental' car because that doesn't really 'prove' she's rich. The main point is she came with $100 dollars in hand and refused to pay. In a normal situation, I would assume that one may try to negotiate with the parking attendant for a while but eventually, you know you'd have to pay the fine or else your car is going to sit there like a log. But this woman (probably some drama queen) went down on her knees and WEPT!! I can't believe such idiocy from a person who can definitely afford to pay the fine but refuses and cries about it. We're talking about a grown, adult lady with a domestic helper and 2 kids.

Eventually her tears and sobs were heard by some passers-by who shared the cost of the fine to let her go. And I'm wondering who were these people as well. She must have really been pitiful weeping on her knees for 30 mins for some random strangers to be willing to pay the fine for her. What if it was you? Would you help her or would you let her settle her own problem? Honestly, if it was me, I'd say its her fault for trying to take the risk and weeping won't induce any pity in me.

$100 for 30 mins is GL PRC rate.

This happened in Joo Chiat?

Well worth her time then.

One lives and dies by the sword, no?
Do the crime, Do the time! In this case, pay the goddamn fine, you pathetic woman.
Your family should be absolutely ashamed of your behavior.
