Parking tickets suck, but they suck a whole lot more when your TV character is being taken off life support that same day.

Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane (Mark Sloan) was spotted getting a ticket while  leaving the gym in LA yesterday (September 27). You mean to tell us that the cops didn't know Mark Sloan was going to die that night and therefore spare Eric the ticket?! We're appalled.

Plus, while sources “close to Grey’s and ABC” tell E! that Chyler Leigh (Lexie Grey) asked to leave Grey's, it looks like it wasn't Eric's choice to go — yet another reason why the cops could have spared Eric that nuisance of a ticket!

What did you think of the Season 9 premiere and Mark's passing? Let us know in the reaction buttons below.

Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
