This is me, during a week when my car DIDN’T get towed twice.
The first tow was my fault. Last week, I parked in front of a driveway I didn’t see, and came home from work to see my car was gone. That was $300 with the parking ticket.
Today I came out of a coffee shop. It was absolutely pouring and I had no jacket, no umbrella. And my car was gone, on a street that said it should be fine parked there until 6. I had the worst day — between a big screw up in my work and this, I broke down in the cars Another $300 later, sopping wet, I vowed to seek vengeance. 😂😂😂
Although it beyond sucks — I would have rather used that money for literally anything else — I can afford it. It sucks but I can afford it. Which immediately makes me think about the folks who can’t. What if you’re already living paycheck to paycheck? What if you rely on your car for transportation to your job? What if your car is barely worth more than the price of the tow? What if you can’t pay, so the price just increases every day? 🤭🤭🤭
These sorts of systems are meant to keep poor people poor. The cyclical nature of poverty doesn’t allow people to get ahead. And simple mistakes or misunderstandings or tragic circumstances can alter someone’s life, and the lives of their family.
So how can we change the system? We educate. We vote. We donate. We help those in need.
So while this is the kind of problem I’ve dedicated my life to solving, the more immediate problem I will solve is getting my ticket overturned. See ya soon, traffic court. 💕
Un dimanche après-midi plutôt agréable avant d'aller faire mes courses pour les deux semaines à venir (il n'y a pas de supermarché où je vis, je suis obligée de me taper une heure de voiture). Les hot springs de Katherine sont très très sympas sauf quand toute la smala se ramène et fait des bombes dans l'eau à côté de toi.
Yesterday I said bye to my mum after a fab 2 weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia.
One of my favourite days was exploring the beautiful Cambodian countryside and visiting Sothy's pepper farm.
Who knew peppercorns grew like this?!?! Miss you already Shazza xoxo
The main reason why I go to CNE is to win toys for @mojo_toypoodle! I won this soft pink ilama at Wack-A-Mole and I thought Mojo might play with it...I guess he kinda did cuz he tried to chew his eyes out.
OMG! Did anyone win at that game where you hang onto the monkey bar? I really wanna see someone win!!! @letsgototheex
