OK, so I happen to have a Mastercard. You know, the whole “priceless” line of ads?
With my Mastercard, I booked a flight, rented a car, and spent a night in NYC. I had a ticket there because I parked illegally by one minute. I WANT to pay the ticket, but I can’t. Turns out my card gets refused by the system they have over there because the ZIP code is not in the US.
Let me repeat that: I can’t pay my parking ticket because I’m a foreigner.
Now, where it gets tricky is if I don’t pay the ticket, next time I enter the country, there’s a good chance that they will refuse my visa because of that unpaid ticket.
The only alternative is going back there and pay it in person. If I leave the country I’ll never be able to do that.
Am I the only one to find that Kafkaian? Please advise in the comments.
