Here at Grub Street, we read Joanne Chang’s tasty tweets almost as compulsively as we eat her pastries. What other chef would confess that customers complain about low-quality straws, or ‘fess up to not being able to use an iPhone?
Today, we’re grateful to her for sharing this gem about Boston’s hyper-vigilant meter maids: “How do the meter ppl do it? The minute my meter is up, they’re on it and I have a ticket. Should hire them to pull stuff out of oven for us.”
Please do this, Joanne! You succeed at pretty much everything you try, so if anyone can spearhead this initiative, it’s you. Pluck ‘em off the streets and away from our car. Thanks! [Jbchang/Twitter, Earlier]
