Parking Tuggeranong style

By 13 August 2012 31

tuggpark

Tuggeranong people park pretty perfectly.

This car is perhaps a tad to the rear of the allocated rectangle, but isn’t parked over a line.

Lolz, all the shops are empty and no-one wants to be there…the driver had all day to pick one of many spots and get the park just right.

Great, the parking is tops. But did you go back 30 minutes later to see how much more of the car had been pilfered?

You didn’t have to go to all that trouble, Johnboy would have put a black stripe over the number plate for you.

The driver came back to his car from the booze shop nearby as I was pulling out. I saw him settling into his seat with brown bagged bottle in hand, so I made tracks, figuratively speaking.

In Tuggeranong they can only afford to buy four fifths of a Peugot!

Next month he might be able to afford the rest.

Either that or he pawned the parts to buy alcohol!

Maybe the last time they parked towards the front of the parking bay, they ended up tearing off the front end of their car on a barrier – so now they’d like to have the rear torn off so that it matches?

Well when you have three kids in the back seat on long trips you need something to pass the time. Considering 6 year olds are not Rhodes Scholars, it is perfectly suitable.

Our kids were spottoing anything that was remotely yellow such as gold & really pale greens so we introsuced the rule that is must be yellow, nothing else. The other thing was the tally count was being exaggerated so someone else in the car has to see it or it didnt happen.

Parked cars are fair game.

Including parked cars with spoto activity occurring within?

Definitely. I like and agree with your spotto rules. However, one must yell “PARKED SPOTTO” in order to get that spotto.

Never come across one.

However in such a case, a switched on parent might simply yell: “Look, a HORSE!” and point in the opposite direction of the dodgy spotto.

It’s not only Tuggerabong, there are a couple of cars in the Gungahlin area that have missing bumpers, and one of them is even a VL Commodore!!

So what’s the issue here? The car is parked straight and within the lines. Is it simply the missing bumper making this pic worthy of such comment from the brilliant minds of the hard hitting RA community?

It’s a Peugeot Convertible. The bumper has obviously been damaged and it’s hardly the model of car Franks Parts Plus has in high demand. A new genuine one is probably worth similar money to the whole car and no doubt needs to be shipped via slow boat from France.

Is this website starting to turn into a localised online version of Today Tonight? Sure feels like it at times.
