‘Sexy Meter Maid’ Costume Always A Great Choice For Halloween
GEEK EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a mildly revised reposting of a Halloween themed story we did two years ago. Feeling kind of lazy, and suffering a bit of a sugar hangover after attending a handful of Halloween themed children’s parties this weekend, we thought it made sense to revisit in advance of Monday’s holiday.

Yeah, everyone should know by now that the term “meter maid” is an outdated term and is not considered politically correct in these so-called enlightened times.
Historically, nationally, internationally and here in Chicago, parking meter enforcement has been done by women. It was only in 1978 that “meter maids” officially began being called Parking Enforcement Aides here in Chicago, according to the Chicago Department of Revenue’s in-house newsletter Revenue Buzz. It then was another 12 years before the first male PEA was hired.
Be that as it may, with Halloween looming, The Expired Meter has found an all around un-PC costume for all those readers looking for that parking enforcement themed costume. With the compelling title of Money Maker Mama Sexy Meter Maid Costume and manufactured by the always classy Shirley of Hollywood, you can never go wrong.
We here at The Expired Meter, with only a scant recollection of the Psych 101 class taken freshman year in college so many years ago, don’t even want to begin to delve into the psychology behind why this costume may be appealing to some. We would suggest taking it up with your therapist or other licensed mental health expert.
Again, if this doesn’t work for you and you’re completely desperate, check out the officially licensed Parking Ticket Geek mask for this Halloween.
