The cost of parking for 30 minutes charged by the Municipal Council is 40 sen (or some places only 30 sen).
But these bloodsucker ‘si gi na’ wanted RM2 for parking outside Gurney Plaza.Â Talk about Gurney Plaza, the other day their basement parking was flooded with fishy water smell (believed from some leaky sewage pipe).Â Puke!
Once, the attendant wanted RM2 from my hubby but was quickly brushed off by my calculative hubby.Â He insisted to pay only half an hour parking because we were just killing time while waiting to pick our children.Â The attendant wanted to bluff that it is the Council’s order but my hubby asked him to call the Council’s staff who were nearby issuing parking summons to motorcyclists (WTF!) parking on kerbs.Â The attendant quickly shut up and gave us a receipt for 40 sen.
Few days ago, I was alone with my kids and the same thing happened again.Â “Dua ringgit!Â (Two ringgit)”. the parking boy insisted.Â So, I told him I only want half an hour and paid him 40 sen.
So, Penangites, don’t get conned by them because an hour is only 80 sen.Â I don’t care if they have to keep updating every half an hour because it is their job.Â If they don’t like working as parking attendants, then, go find other jobs.Â If they don’t have the manpower to update, then don’t take the contract from MPPP.Â And if MPPP never change the parking system, then, no one can cut-throat us public.Â They want the easy way out of never updating the parking tickets and charge you RM2 flat.
Hahaha, of course, if you are driving a spanking new, shiny paintworks new car, you may not want to mess with them.Â I can’t guarantee your car will be safe after trying to save RM1.20.Â Frankly, it is not the money but rather the principle of it.
