Parking letter should have been booted

Dear Editor:

In response to Colin Constantine’s letter ( “The Jaws of Injustice,” The Aspen Times, Aug. 31): Colin did you just move here? You sound a lot like my ex, always blaming everyone else for his mistakes.

As someone who has driven to town only to find our company’s only parking place occupied by someone else’s car, I applaud the Boot Man! There is a sign right in front of our space alerting drivers that it is a “private” space, yet people assume that the rule doesn’t apply to them.

They inconvenience me and think nothing of it. I wish we had a boot man in our parking lot. Ignorance is never an excuse, nor is arrogance. No matter what town you are in, if you are parked in a private lot, where you don’t belong, you deserve what you get.

Try doing that in New York City. It takes hours just to figure out where the car has been towed to! At least with a boot, your car is where you left it. I think the next time someone pirates our space, I might be tempted to deflate all of their tires. They deserve to be inconvenienced too.
