Here a little slice
There a little cut
Three percent for sleeping with the window shut
When it comes to fixing prices
There are lots of tricks he knows
How it all increases
All them bits and pieces Jesus!
It’s amazing how it grows!
—”Master of the House”
Friend and spirits author Kevin R. Kosar was more than a little irked when he was recently ticketed for a sticker violation. No, it wasn’t that he forgot to renew. His up-to-date sticker is right there on his windshield. But because he says the old one is a pain to remove, he simply left it there. As if District parking cops were going to let that slide!
Remember when D.C. started ticketing people who parked their cars in their own driveways?
I told him he’s fortunate his tags haven’t expired—that sort of crime could land him in jail.
