    Government bureaucracy

    It never fails to amaze me.

    I had to attend some Oil/Gas Drilling safety training at the Federal Building in downtown Anchorage. So, I parked my POV in one of the pay lots and put in $10 cash. It's one of those ones where you just put the money in the paybox of the # where you parked. No receipts. So I took a picture of the paybox, my truck, and the stall # with my phone and turn it for reimbursement.

    Reimbursement denied because I didn't get a receipt.

    If I had been in travel status (say gone to training in Fairbanks) or used my State credit card to pay at credit card pay lot, I wouldn't need to submit the receipt (we only need to submit receipts for charges of $25 or more).

    I should have gone to the office, taken a g-ride, and just parked it at a meter all day.

    It's not that I need the money, it's the principle.
