I totally just fucking Bo Duke’d my way out of a parking ticket.
Growing up watching “The Dukes of Hazzard,” I’ve always wished I could be a Robin Hood-style outlaw, constantly getting over on the sheriff and running wild all over town. But mostly I’ve just wanted to hood slide across my car with legitimate reason.
While I have had a few run-ins with the law, it is rare that I get the better end of the deal. Today ended up being my day and I got to fulfill a childhood dream in process.
I saw the meter maid pull up next to the car as I was going to move it. She left about a foot gap between my car and her vehicle, so I was hitting unlock while sprinting toward the car.
I jumped up and slid across the rear wheel well seamlessly (thanks to a light rain), splitting the cars. I hopped in the driver’s seat and skirted off. She tried to follow, but a car pulled out in front and I hit the corner.
It felt amazing to pull that off, especially since I’ve all ready been hit with four tickets in the past 10 days. My adrenaline was through the roof and the sweet slide made it that much better.
That, and with my long standing issues with authority, it’s always nice to get over on the man Duke-style.
