“What hap­pened? How could I be given a ‘fine’ for my car if I have parked it in the garage?”

So said a man sur­named Zhang who found a ticket at­tached to his car win­dow af­ter he fin­ished his meal in a shop­ping mall in Tongzhou district, Bei­jing. How­ever, when he looked closer he found that the “fine” was ac­tu­ally a real es­tate ad that looked sim­i­lar to a traf­fic ticket. And there were words ex­plain­ing that, “In or­der to catch your at­ten­tion, we have drained our brain to de­sign an ad like this… for a sur­prise.” Zhang no­ticed that cars parked nearby had the same “fines” at­tached. While Zhang said he un­der­stands some sales­men’s work is not easy, he dis­likes this way of pro­mo­tion. (Source: Bei­jing Evening News)
