I think I've told this story before, but several years ago when I was a part-time student at Syracuse University, I went up the hill to buy textbooks. Parking is notoriously difficult on the hill and I was delighted to find a spot at a parking meter. I put some coins in, bought my books and, when I got back to my car, found a parking ticket. The time on the meter had not run out. However, the meter was in a no-parking zone. I didn't notice the signs -- I just figured a meter meant it was fair game. That really torqued me!
