Salem, Massachusetts USA; Magically Disappearing Money. What Witchcraft!

Updated: Oct 5, 2019

As I was in Massachusetts for the week, and as it was October 1st, I headed to Salem to indulge in that Fall Feeling of Halloween. Witchcraft was in the air as my GPS forced me into one way streets and circular drives before directing me to the parking lot. The same lot I had already passed by three times. I estimated my length of stay, two hours, multiplied by the 1.50 per hour parking fee (four dollars) and attempted to pay. New-fangled parking meters accept credit cards, except for the one I have, so I got out my cash. I entered a $10. note and waited for change. Nothing, no change given. I magically lost six dollars before my adventure in Salem had even began.
