Last week I had a business trip to Topeka that required me to use a downtown parking meter, which expired while I was hung up in a construction project meeting. When I returned to my car, the notice on my window said that my mistake was being forgiven this time as only a warning, since I was a visitor to Topeka.
What a novel idea. I left there with such a pleasant impression of their city for that simple reason, and they don’t even have an entertainment district to try to entice me back.
Hey, Kansas City. Ever heard of the “long nickel vs. the short dime?”
