Monday parking mayhem

By Barcham - 17 June 2013 27

Happy second day of the new week Rioters!

Let’s start our working week off with a bang by shaking our fingers and looking sternly at those uncouth individuals who cannot or will not park correctly.


1. One of our legion of anonymous Rioters has started the ball rolling this week:

This pic was taken Friday afternoon in the laneway behind the Southern Cross Club in Pitman St, Greenway.

All 3 cars are parked illegally. An hour later when I came back out after 10 year old’s basketball match, seven cars were parked illegally (in exactly the same way they do every time I go there).

Zip


2. Miranda has sent us this glowing image from Dickson tradies. I’m not sure quite what’s going on here, but I’ll trust her judgement.

Zim!


3. The Bus Driver has hauled in a magnificent load of photos:

Bad parking from Anzac Park West. The Green Daewoo was blocking in 2 cars.

Zop!

Zag!

Zog!

Zeb!

Zan!

Zud!

Zew!

Bad parking from Anslie Ave west, and a Volvo from Ried. The white car had nothing behind it but still needed to take up space from 2 parking spaces.

Zug!

Zef!

Zac!

Zir!

Zod!

Zaw!


4. The ever reliable Bubzie shot this for us:

Spotted in Dickson.

Zet!


5. Our mate Kate has our backs with this tiny picture:

Tuggeranong hyperdome underground parking Saturday morning

Zom!


6. Loxmyf returns to familiar territory:

Jamison features again. This twit has not only parked the wrong side of the No Standing sign, he’s also well over the line and into the lane. Yes, he’s napping behind the wheel.

Ziv!


7. BigRed has his eye on the time:

Spotted this cab in Furzer St Woden, about 4:15 last Friday. I estimate it sat in the no stopping zone for approx
15 minutes.

Zok!


8. Jason brings a touch of elegance to our parking photos:

A touch of bad parking spotted behind the realm.

Zoy!

Sorry people, but Sunday is indeed the first day of the week.

Who seriously gets up on Sunday morning thinking its the first day of the week??

Pedants who want to make regular people feel stupid. You know, despite the fact that everyone, including these pedants, consider Sunday a part of the weekend, with Monday therefore logically being the first day of the new week.

No offense, Barchy :p

Wait… what?

Monday is the second day of the week.

Have I missed something?

Why would anyone think otherwise? Because some people start work on Monday? Do they believe that 9am is the first hour of the day too?

I’ve not made a conscious decision to pretend Sunday is the first day of the week in order to look smart, it just is the start of the week so why would I pretend otherwise?

Logic has nothing to do with it.

Arbitrary unit of time called a week starts on arbitrary day of said week.

7 days starting Sunday.

I am honestly surprised that this is a topic of discussion, I was unaware of rogue calendar factions.

The idea is appealing though, can I start up a group that believes Thursday is the start of the week because that’s when new movies come out?

That would generally be the Arab states of the Persian Gulf where Barkum’s roots lie,well ostensibly at least 🙂

Sorry, I must have missed the part where it somehow became JB’s fault that these people chose to park illegally in a public place.

No doubt it relates to his riding a bicycle with malice aforethought.

But you could collate them all and publish them on Hate Mail Friday!

Do you think some of them are knowingly trolling RA?

If so … genius!

Might have to go and park my bicycle badly and take a pic. Imagine the incandescent rage …

Fair enough. I just thought it might have been some screwball legal thing . . .

Hi all – at the risk of receiving thousands of ‘Doh!s’, why aren’t we allowed to see the number plates of these thoughtless, slovenly individuals’ vehicles?
