Pros: driving around in that golf cart
Cons: when all is said and done there is no where to go
This was such a great job and being in the sixties it paid well and meter maids were sort of popularized by the song. It just happened for me at the right time raising three children. The Gables is a City so there is quite a lot of land to traverse and over the years we had more responsibilities added to our jobs We no longer wrote meter tickets but anything that was in an area with signage.
we drove golf carts, and they had no covers so we did not work in bad weather. andthey found other tasks for usbut in the summer we went to the local pool for lunch to eat and cool off! A dream job! Of course in the winter we froze so it balances out. We worked hard because that is the only job where they know where you are every minute by the time on your tickets and you carry a phone in case your boss has need of you.
Other than the fact that you were out in the sun all day and we were not aware of the damage it was a great jobfor 13 years and then i decided to go to school and change direction.
