This is the oddest thing I have ever read. lol I wonder if you or I would try this if we could get away with it. lol CALUMET, Mich. - Better late than never. An unidentified woman has paid off a parking ticket she got in Calumet on Sept. 1, 1976. Police in the Upper Michigan town had long ago written off the $1 ticket and were surprised when it showed up in the mail, along with a $20 bill and a note. The message: "I always had good intentions of paying it. I put it aside and every once in a while I would come across it and said 'someday I'm going to pay it.' Now I think it's time." The woman apparently hopes the matter is closed. There's no return address on the envelope. And the note says, "Please don't try and track me down. I am a respectable lady." http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24569889/?GT1=43001

Good for her, and the twenty was probably enough to cover the extra charges the government would have tacked on my now..
