Watch out for efficient meter maids in Pelham Bay

(Credit: Urbanite)

So frustrated are the proprietors of the All American Laundry in Pelham Bay with overly efficient meter maids that they've created a sign warning customers of the massive fines that await. Apparently making a quick drop-off or pick-up is dangerous for customers' fiscal health. And it's "killing" the business too, Mr. Mayor.

We have to hand it to the shop for its creative way of coping with a chronic frustration. The sign doesn't hold any particular mayor accountable, so we'd imagine whoever succeeds Michael Bloomberg will be on the hook, too.
