Forgive us our trespasses – There’s no forgiveness from the parking meter police …
A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldn’t find a space with a meter. Then he put a note under the windshield wiper that read:
‘I have circled the block 10 times. If I don’t park here, I’ll miss my appointment. As the Bible says, FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES.’
When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this note.
‘I’ve circled this block for 10 years. If I don’t give you a ticket, I’ll lose my job. As the Bible says, Lead Us Not Into Temptation.’
