Parking for free or not?

When finding a parking spot (in the city), will you pay for parking? Will you valet? Will go into the garage? Even when you have passed many perfectly parking spots on the street?

Quite often, I am appalled when people do such things because of “safety” issues (for the car mind you, not the people) and the impatience.

I remember when I was in Seattle, we almost gave into the $25 plus tip valet at the hotel. But my Chinese upbringing came back. And we found metered parking that was only $1.50/hr. A steal since the meters stopped metering by 6 pm and the following day was Sunday.

If I worked in valet, I probably wouldn’t park that well. Do they do thorough interviews for the valet when they’re probably not paid that much?
