With the advancement of technology, more and more parking lots have updated their systems so that drivers can not only pay by themselves or allow the computer to record their license plate automatically upon entering a parking lot for monthly payment.
A recent digital bug in a parking lot system, however, has led a social media user to share a funny experience of witnessing a driver in front of him being asked to pay a NT$100,000 parking fee.
According to the social media user, he was waiting in line to pay for his parking fee when he noticed the person standing in front of him, staring at the monitor incredibly puzzled.
He went forth to ask what was wrong, only to see that the monitor claimed the driver entered the parking lot in 1899, with the fee culminating NT$100,000.
The social media user wrote that he immediately burst out laughing and asked the driver if he was a time traveler.
He quickly captured the incident and shared that the driver had also attempted to contact customer service but to no avail.
In the end, the social media user jokingly asked the driver if it would be easier to just pay the NT$100,000 fee.
The post immediately went viral with social media users wondering: “How long would it take for the machine to eat 1,000 NT$100 bills?”
Others added that “the fee is relatively cheap for someone who parked for 121 years”, while another jokingly called the incident: “the time-traveling parking fee.”
