Some things aren’t necessarily a scam, but they ARE sketchy. Take this airport parking scenario, for instance. We happened upon this parking situation near the airport. 

Our team was on our way to a meeting near the airport and was looking for parking. We pulled into a nearby parking lot and noticed signage stating that guest parking was $35. But we quickly realized we were in the wrong place, so we went to the front desk to let them know we’d made a mistake and needed to leave, having been parked there for just a moment. You won’t believe the response!

Although we explained our situation and asked to exit, we were told, “Nope, not without $30!” We had literally been there just three minutes! What gives?

Clearly, the lot was nearly empty. They weren’t exactly doing big business here. Thus, they were using sketchy tactics, trying to generate some revenue however they could. Come on, really? That’s no way to do business. At all!

But I suppose we learned a valuable lesson ourselves. Always be sure to read the signage before entering a paid lot. You may come across some sketchy business owners - and be out more cash than it’s worth.
