The $30 parking fine was due yesterday. It was my moms fault. My dad was overseas this week so my mom had been using his car for the past week. 

My mom dropped me off at a friend's apartment for a Christmas party, saying that she would pay the fine on the way home after that. 

The next morning I woke up a little hungover and she was sitting on the sofa watching TV. I asked her, so did you go pay the fine last night? She looked at me and said no, she will go pay it later. 

In the evening we were going to pick up my dad from the airport. On the way there I asked her, so did you go pay the fine today? She paused for a while and said no. 

My dad got in the car. He told us about his trip. About halfway he asked us if we had paid the parking fine yet and I said "Yes". 

When we got home my dad got his bags and I told him "We need to go to mummy's office to put down some things, we will come back later."

We drove to Thomson Plaza. Before I got out of the car my mother said “阿颖,你真的是个很好的女孩。谁放弃你没有眼光。”

I got out of the car and went to the machine to pay the fine. The $30 fine dated 27/11/2014 was there, unpaid. 

And below that I saw another fine of $10. It was dated 17/12/2014.
