Thanks for all the sympathies. This is my first FML to get published so I'm super happy. It's my first week back at school in four years. I received my bachelors and started working full time. I've had the luxury of parking in a parking lot all this time. I actually live in New York City so street parking is extremely difficult to find. I should have known better when I saw such a close spot to the school. #17 is completely correct. I was so convinced that it was Tuesday that I didn't even think to double check the date but I've learned my lesson now. I'm going to suck it up and pay it. I'm shaking my own head because it's such a silly reason to get a ticket.

I'm sorry about your luck, OP. However, for future reference, I'd avoid parking in certain areas altogether. Never take a chance for its better to be safe than sorry.

You will probably be able to fight it. I would if I were you.

"I'm going to fight the ticket because I messed up the day and the ticket is 100% valid. That will work!" That's a waste of everyone's time and maybe money. My city charges a dispute fee for all tickets and if you lose the dispute you forfeit the fee and have to pay the ticket at the full, non-discounted rate.

You can't really do that though... they clean most, if not all, of the streets at some point through the week. At least where I live. If you avoid all the streets with street cleaning signs you'd never be able to park anywhere. That's the whole point of putting the times when they do it- so you know when you can or cannot park there.
