Shelly was stuck between a rock and a hard place. Shelly knew it didn’t take much alcohol to make a difference behind the wheel. "You don’t have to be drunk to be impaired," she told Today. "I wasn’t some crazy drunk lady, but I definitely had no business driving.” Yet considering her history with parking tickets, the last thing she wanted was to leave her car. But what choice did she have?

Sherwood Park is a rural town, where hardly any cabs are spotted. Their only other option was Uber, but even that wasn’t ideal. They knew drivers would be coming from other towns and it would take a long time. The couple were eager to get home, but in the end, they did the responsible thing and called an Uber. Shelly planned to come back for her car the next day, but as soon as she stepped outside she knew that wasn't going to happen.

The next day, there was a snowstorm. Though Canadians are used to heavy snowfall, sometimes they just have to stay indoors and ride it out - it’s too dangerous to be out there on the street. So Shelly was unable to retrieve her car from where she’d left it. Although she know she couldn't afford another parking ticket, she had no choice. Almost 48 hours later, she finally made it back. And guess what was waiting for her?

As soon as she saw her car, Shelly knew it wasn’t good. It was under four inches of snow, and she felt embarrassed for having left it there for so long. She started brushing off the layers of snow and ice so she could drive off. Then she noticed a note pinned to her windshield. It would seem as if she had really hit rock bottom this time.

Given that she’d left the car there for so long, Shelly could only imagine what trouble she was now in. With her luck, she was sure it was another parking ticket, even though she’d never seen parking attendants at that lot. So she assumed it must be from the bar, angry that she’d blocked their entryway for almost two days. But when she looked closer at the note, her face turned beet red.
