Why My Friday Was a Financial Disaster

Friday should have been a wonderful day for me: early finish from work had been planned, chance of some good surf, and dinner at home with my wife.

However, it wasn’t to be.

Work royally sucked: it was very, very busy and it was stressful, so much so that I didn’t get to leave work early as I was supposed to do. So busy in fact, that I forgot to move my car from a clearway. I have ended up with a $197 fine which I have no chance of avoiding. So here comes a nasty little expense for my credit card.

Friday was a financial disaster – I really should have stayed in bed.

So here I am, I admit that I was remiss in not moving my car from the clearway (sorry to all the commuters who had to dodge my car) but I’m protesting the egregious size of the fine! $197 for a simple parking offense is excessive. I’m guilty for a parking offense and I will pay it but North Sydney Council are guilty of robbery.

Rant over.
