The Seven Minor Annoyances That Drive Everyone in Miami Insane
Sometimes it's the smaller annoyances that really make us want to catch the next flight to Milwaukee and never look back.
Getting Stuck Behind Someone in the Midtown Miami Parking Garage Who Doesn't Understand the Ticket Machine

There are hundreds of parking garages in Miami-Dade, and the vast majority of them have their own little quirk that will occasionally make you want to rip your eyes out.
This is hands down the worst, though. Getting stuck behind someone in an automated ticketed garage who for whatever reason does not understand the simple concept of paying on foot beforehand and sticking in their ticket the correct way into the machine is literal hell. You never know when it'll happen! Everything is moving along smoothly, and then -- boom! -- you're stuck waiting for an idiot to have someone come over and help them figure out something ten people in front of them did without any problem. The fact that the Shops at Midtown eliminated the free first hour of parking has only made it worse.

This is a weird time to gripe about this because we've had a good stretch of reasonably sunny days, but you know it's coming back, and it's coming back with a vengeance. Don't be caught anytime between 2 and 6 p.m. without an umbrella.
