Another Failmeter, courtesy of commenter Boycat:
A failure that I once encountered (but don’t have a photo of): negative time on the meter, which was then deducted from the time purchased by coin.
mine said fail yesterday! the parking guy standing there said it means you get a free 2 hours when they finally come fix it. from now on i’m all about the fail meters
Saw one of those near USC a couple weeks ago. Thought about photographing it, but then I figured FailBlog must already be full of’em.
Please say that this has been submitted to failblog.org. If not, I might need to shoulder the responsibility myself
So, if you get 2 free hours, then Fail = Win?
i do believe those are spider legs inside that second meter. perhaps that has something to do with the failure?
Man. I saw one of those parking meters, but the lighting was working against me. Couldn’t take a picture with my crappy camera phone.
I took a picture of one of these in my hometown:
i think fail for them, win for you
“Fail” is really just a four letter version of “paper clip”. It used to be that after they fixed the meters, they would put in two hours. Now it sounds like DC has got license plate scanners to get people for two hour violations regardless of working, non-working or even existent meters.
I’ve been reading about Motorolla for some time now and this looks Shopped. Just like their crappy phones.
#7 Vamidus: you forgot to mention the Krave.
