Not fair! That NEVER works for us! Ha!
Aretha Franklin was out to dinner at Neely's Barbecue Parlor in NYC on Monday, when a parking enforcement officer started to write her a parking ticket for being illegally parked.
The Queen of Soul did some seriously quick thinking, and she started singing to the officer in an effort to get out of the ticket…and it worked!
Instead of writing her a ticket, the officer had Aretha write HER an autograph!
Way to beat the system, Aretha! We would have LOVED to have been there for that!
Have U ever gotten out of a ticket in a creative way?
