Woman Gets Out Of Paying Her Parking Fine By Writing Humorous Poem

Woman Gets Out Of Paying Her Parking Fine By Writing Humorous Poem

There’s nothing more frustrating than coming back to your parked car and finding a fine on the windshield. So when this UK woman discovered one on her car recently she thought she’d try her luck with a funny poem. You won’t believe what happened next!

Jayne Parsons from the UK was recently given a fine for parking her car on yellow lines outside her home. But instead of just accepting it, the 53-year-old thought she’d write the council a funny poem explaining why she had to leave her car there. 

According to the BBC, the poem was sent to Wiltshire Council where she hilariously explained why she had to abandon her car in haste. Here’s the full poem:

“Dear Sir, or to whom it may concern,

A parking fine I did earn.

I was parked outside my house on yellow lines,

Intending to move and dodge your fines.

But on Sunday I was loading my car

With food and cakes for a horseshow; not far

Before these events, I get a nervous tum,

For the toilet I had to run.

And with not a moment to lose,

I made it indoors to release my poos!

I couldn’t move until all was done,

But when I returned the fine was done.

I thought it better was be discreet

And leave the car parked in the street.

Next time I’ll move and not be a pain,

But if I get caught short, I’ll s*** in the drain.”

Hahaha! How good is that!

The best thing though, is that the council not only waived the fine but they responded with a funny poem of their own:

“The penalty charge notice was correctly issued as the vehicle was parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours. In this instance the restriction is clearly indicated by the double yellow lines which are in effect at all times.

However, in considering people’s circumstances,

The council is often led song and dances,

It’s difficult to know the truth,

And quite often we would ask for proof,

But the photographs the officer has taken,

Shows that indeed, you had been baking,

These cakes had been loaded in your Land Rover,

On the double yellow lines it was parked over,

So on this occasion we are pleased to say,

The council accept your appeal, you do not have to pay.”

Jayne said she was shocked to discover she didn’t have to pay for the fine even though she was clearly in the wrong!
