I must lead a sheltered life..
As I read this morning's paper,
it related that the people who
went to see the OCC motorcycle
show.. not only had to pay the big
bucks for the tickets to get in..but
also had to pay $10 a car, and $5
for a motorcycle to park.
So you bought your ticket for $39
and then add on to that $10 making
a grand total of $49.
The producer of the event said
he paid $20 for valet parking
at the local Spokane hotel.
And he quoted a parking fee in
New York was $56!!!.
He was quoted, that the people could
park for free on the street near the
fair grounds. Right! Anyone who has
been around that area knows that is
an impossible thing.
Outrageous to have to pay that kind
of money, when you have to pay to
get into the event, that you are going
to. I know, I know, there are a lot of
you out there who pay it all the time
and think nothing of it.
I guess this country girl is going to
stay in the country where parking is
free. Or if there is a $1 or $2 parking
fee, and the event is free, then I will
see how bad I want to go.
But it just isn't right.
