    why the professional development day in quotes? Doesn’t putting it in the quotes make it seem like it is not on the up and up?

    SOP to use quotes for terminology that is that of another agency or entity – I should find a link for that term so that those interested in what a PD day is can follow it.

    Yikes! I spent all day going from client to client downtown, just parking wherever I pleased. I used a 3-minute passenger loading zone for about an hour and never bothered to plug any meters. Truck zones, “consul vehicles only,” I used them all.
    And here it is, after the day’s work, and I read this. I guess I was lucky I didn’t get any tickets.
    I was surprised to see the Cushman making the rounds near Jefferson Square in the late afternoon. Now I discover that this wasn’t a “parking holiday.”

Sorry, comment time is over.
