i've never seen people/guys so tough on a girl before. anyway, you won't get your money back. See if you can get a parking spot, the concierge might give you one, but that's another long shot. I liked your story though, I wish my girlfriend was more like you. She kinda sucks and complains a lot since she too needs a parking pass every time she visits. We don't tow because it's illegal to do that in Canada, but she gets tickets if she doesn't get a pass.
Should she have been treated differently because she was playing damsel in distress? I don't think so. It was technically her mistake and she paid for it. I don't see how people pointing that out is being tough on her
guys normally don't come down hard on girls in here. And for a girl to come down hard looks like jealousy to me. But what do I know
