Something happened to me one time that I swear was a hustle of some sort, but I didn't have time to prove it. I had travelled up to Chicago to see a preview showing of the movie Serenity months before it came out. I parked in the lot right next to the theatre, because, well, convenience...
I did arrive early, but not more than an hour or so before the showing. The movie lasted 2 hours maximum, and so I was back in my car and headed out inside of 3 hours. I had prepared the amount I needed to pay for that amount of time. Handed the ticket to the person in the booth. Who then said that I had been there since very early that morning and now needed to pay an exorbitant amount. (About 30 dollars instead of the 5 I had planned on)
I tried to tell her that there was a mistake, but she was insistent I had been there since early morning. People started honking behind me, and I just kinda yelled "ALRIGHT, HERE'S YOUR MONEY YOU EXTORTIONIST, NOW LET ME OUT!". She gave me a look, took the money, gave me my change and I charged out of there.
Don't think it was a hustle of any sort, it was just bleedin' annoying and dumb.
