Department of Revenue
Nobody likes a meter maid. And, in turn, nobody likes this disgraced sportswriter, who resigned from his Sun-Times post in a much publicized hissy fit earlier this year and drew criticism—and several howls of “good riddance”—from readers, athletes and even colleagues (ouch). It seems a likely employment path for Jay the Joke would be to somehow continue to make everyone’s life just a little bit worse through parking tickets, all the while, just with his presence, keeping his responsibility as an overall plague on Chicago. If he writes you a ticket, though, be sure to contest away—it’s unlikely he’ll show up to court to defend his actions.
Audience comments: “Talking to himself in the mirror”; “As far away from chicago as possible”; “garbage man…although that’s an insult to garbage workers”;“Wendella Boat Tour guide: Hand him the mic, he loves to hear himself talk.”
