Back to work, back to school, and back to bad Canberra parking.

1) Kicking off proceedings we have this in from Greg:

5pm at the Dickson shops. Driver and passengers actually came back to their car as I was leaving – three young twenty-something men in construction high-visibility shirts.

10) Rounding out the count Simon came across this at the Farmers’ Markets:

Queensland here is obviously living in the future, where reversing/turning circles are history and it’s all about hover cars.

We could all take a leaf out of Larry David’s book on this matter..

To be fair, that little car-park at Jamison is always full.

It’s not like we should expect people to drive another 30 metres down the road and park in the giant empty car-park that involves a whole extra minute of walking to the shops.

Pleasing to know that the hi-vis behaviour is consistent whether stationary or in motion.

I have developed a general theory relating to hi-vis clothing – If they’re wearing it, they’re a s*** driver.

Also applies to blonde females with anything pink in their car.

It’s terrible, but every stereotype we have about certain groups of drivers – be it the colour of their hair, their age, their ethnicity, or even those knobs who think they’re someone cos they’re an EL2 and drive a cheap Mazda soft top – they’re all true!

One of my calming mechanisms when I’m caught behind a crap driver isn’t something that I’m particularly proud of – but I like to guess which of these categories the rubbish driver is according to their driving style. You’d be horrified by how accurate I can be…

In general, everyone from Cooma is a cock…

Or anyone driving while wearing a hat.

2 and 3 – that carpark at Jamison Plaza. You could spend a day there and see that happen all day long – with the Post Office, CBA and St George all at that end, it sees a lot of that action.

I still don’t know why the registraion plates need to be obscured. They are parked in a public place where thousands of people can view them, no different really to having a picture on the internet.

Enjoying these, and will continue to right up until I see my own car here 🙂

#8 and #9 may well be legitimately differently-abled individuals making valid use of the extra space provided. I sure hope not, but maybe …
