Oxymoron department

Several times today, I saw SJSU employees wearing their “parking services” vests. The service? Handing out $40 parking tickets.

I realize this is a fairly prosaic (and not terribly Orwellian) use of newspeak, but is this a service I can refuse? Given state (and CSU) budget cuts, perhaps we can hope for service cutbacks.
