More on that ticket

RE: An ex­pen­sive park­ing ticket (Let­ter Dec. 1)

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

I felt I just had to ad­dress Mr. David O’Brien from Belleville’s (where one as­sumes no one re­ceives park­ing tick­ets) vit­ri­olic let­ter. Such rage over a park­ing ticket, it would be funny if it wasn’t so sad. It’s in­dica­tive of a so­ci­ety where a per­ceived in­jus­tice in­curs this wrath be­cause of a sense of en­ti­tle­ment.

That his daugh­ter’s park­ing ticket would cause Mr. O’Brien to be “the least sup­port­ive person in Canada of the City of Hamil­ton” and McMaster grad­u­ates (who were forced to deal with this “abuse” in the pur­suit of their ed­u­ca­tion), is com­pletely out of per­spec­tive. Tsk, tsk Mr. O’Brien, pay the ticket and be proud of your daugh­ters’ achieve­ments with­out blud­geon­ing peo­ple over the head with them. Nadine Stout, Dun­das
