I had to run into a small mom and pop hardware in Venice today. Quick trip. I figured I’d be in and out in under 6 minutes. I pulled into a metered spot right out front — my lucky day! — and popped in a dime.
And got nada. No minutes.
Then I checked below the coin slot and saw it only took quarters, dollar coins or credit cards. Dollar coins? Who uses these?
Dimes and nickels last useful purpose was the parking meter.
Thanks LA. You suck.
