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!

The Hebrew or traditional Christian calendars designated Sunday as the first day of the week but the secular among us generally ascribe to the International Organization for Standardization ISO 8601 where Sunday is the seventh and last day of the week.

Do we? I missed that memo.

The ISO system as far as I knew was a date keeping system to help make like easier for government departments and the like to use in their book keeping, when did it become the official calendar of atheism?

Look it seems I’ve inadvertently opened a barrel of monkeys here when I wasn’t aware or a barrel to begin with. I wonder does else anyone actually believe that the idea of switching around the first day of the week is an odd and pointless thing or is it just me?

I’m not really fussed as to whether Sunday or Monday is considered the first day (like I said, I kinda think Thursday should be), but I find the idea that it has changed, or that different people believe different things about it, or that it’s somehow tied to your stance on religion, to be rather silly.

The idea that people obviously care enough about this to call me out on it (let alone accuse me of being a pedant or ignorant) is very strange.

We jest because we love you, don’t get too worked up about it :p

But On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work… Are you suggesting that God created the second day of the week first, and the first day of the week seventh? That is as whacky as using the bible as a reference in an argument.

I was unaware

Ignorant, darling. The word you’re looking for is ‘ignorant’.

Yes! In your face, Barcham! :p 😀
