A Small, Bitter LA Victory

I’m driving into Century City Mall and pull up to the parking ticket dispenser. I punch the green button to get a parking chit.

As the dot matrix printer inside whirls into life, the machine’s LED message window informs me in glowing cash green letters:

YOUR TICKET IS BEING PRODUCED.

Really?

Not, “…is being printed”? Not, “…is coming”? Maybe just a humble, “Please wait”?

The machine spits out my greenlit ticket, and I clutch it between my fingers. The bitter irony; I can now tell the world that something of mine has been produced in LA.
