Everyday Life: 'Free' Parking???!!!

On a weekday a fortnight ago, as I went to return and pick up books at Burke Library, I encountered for the first time after many years, a security guard. Since the parking lot was full, I had pulled up to the curb where he was standing for a quick in and out. Nothing I had not done many times before. He "greeted" me by quizzing me on my intended destination and threatening to tow my car. As a longtime patron of the facility, I was shocked and offended.
