"Upset by attitude of parking attendant"

My husband was taken to GRI in an ambulance suffering chest pain. It was late in the evening so I drove myself to the hospital. My husband was to be admitted but there was no bed for him so I decided to come home at 5am.
It was a cold windy wet night and after paying for my parking ticket I drove to the barrier but it would not operate. I had to park the car and go to the attendants office.
He told me the reason the barrier would not open was because I hadn't paid. I asked him how I had a ticket if I hadn't paid but he just kept on saying that I hadn't paid. I ended up paying again for a ticket just to get me out.
I was worried about my husband and felt vulnerable driving home at this time of the morning. If this attendant had any decency in him he would have looked at the facts and let me through the barrier
Did this man really think that a seventy two year old woman was trying to get free parking when all I wanted was to get out of the wind and rain and get home?
