merc in the tradies

David has sent in this picture taken in the Dickson Tradies.

Will we ever tire of badly parked cars?

Einstein said: “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the the universe.”

This series is in keeping with the spirit of those fine words.

Whenever that happens at Belconnen Mall i always let my trolley do the talking for me.

My mate had this happen to his car at Belco mall. I wonder if that was you?

Could have been, i was in a hurry to get back to ADFA.

Aha! Now we have an explanation for the attitude and behaviour…

I drive a Merc and it’s black and it’s value is more than two small cars, so I get two spaces!

Compensating for something?

If only your mate had a thin cotton cover over his car, it would have saved the damage!

you’re an ass-hole. Unless you see the person park, you don’t know what was in the way prior to that person parking.

And proud of it, whinger! People should always try to park properley. 131114, here is lifeline’s number, tell someone who cares what you think.

I think it’s important to spell properly before learning to park properly

Fair call, I will cop that! There is no reason for unlitteracy.

It’s obvious.

Tradies parking in handicapped parks – now that I can believe.

“The tradies took my spot, so I’m just going to park like an idiot because I have to, Boo hoo.”
Who cares what the excuse or how angelic the driver is, still not right.If the disabled person wasn’t driving, why park that far away from the column, it’d make more sense to scrunch up against it and make more room on the passenger side.

clearly, the text on the concrete has been tampered with and some words removed – the driver knew that the sign really meant to say ‘small part of your car only’ and was just being compliant in a befitting germanic efficient manner..?

Mercs, the cars you drive when you’re not a driver but a passenger who wants to finger tip the wheel while using a lumbar log to offset the ache of your wallet.
