It’s not your fault

Cars trying to park on Centre Road

Dear Car 2, it’s not your fault.

Car 1 has parked in a stupid way, in the middle of two spots.

But you can’t fit there.

Really, you can’t. No matter how many times you try. Whatever angle you come in at.

Your car is bigger than the space that is left.

You might as well give up, and find another spot.

Dear oh dear. What possesses people to park as close as they possibly can to their destination? With the obvious exception of disabled drivers (and there are designated spaces for them), the majority of us should at least be able to park a distance away and walk up to 400 metres without too much difficulty. You watched this bloke for at least a couple of minutes Daniel?

That is a shocker!!!!! I can’t believe someone would leave their car parked at such an angle and actually walk away. Of course, they’d fully expect to return to it without it having been struck by another vehicle, or scratched, dented, etc. etc. And if the car is damaged, they’d probably blame the owner of Car # 1, not themselves. On the other hand, the owner of Car # 2 is probably trying to make a point to the owner of Car # 1, but really, it’s just NOT THAT IMPORTANT….!

Shan: he was still trying to park when this picture was taken. He tried another couple of times before giving up.

PDX: was watching for maybe a minute. I’m with you — I’d rather keep driving to find a spot, then walk back.
