from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. One who writes or paints show-cards for shop-windows, etc.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
He did some samples of showcard and window tickets and endeavoured to get some orders by canvassing the shops in the town, but this was also a failure, for these people generally had a ticket-writer to whom they usually gave their work.
They refuse to pay and instead attempt to shame the ticket-writer.
It's clear that the ticket-writer is writing "white panel van" yet entering the wrong license number on the ticket but try to get them to believe that.
When Chief Stone fires the Paradise Police Department’s most enthusiastic ticket-writer, the city’s main source of revenue takes a serious hit.
Only now there's this added threat of some psychotic ticket-writer pulling you over for nothing worse than matching the speed of every other f***ing car on the road.
