Dad pays son's $11,040 worth of parking tickets
No, I'm not kidding. Jaime Rodriguez shares the same first name as his son. Apparently this fact cause the city of Chicago to put all his son's parking tickets in his name. From the story:
The teacher, who topped Chicago's list of city employees with unpaid tickets, explained that it was his 26-year-old son--also named Jaime--who accumulated the citations, not him.
The younger Rodriguez collected tickets both on his own car and his dad's car. His father said the city "took the easy way out" and stuck him with the citations because his name is the same as his son's.
The elder Rodriguez says he has learned a lesson: "Not to lend my car to my kid -- or to change my son's name to Peter, or something."
