Parking Hawker style

bmw parking

Mike has sent this one in:

Waiting for my wife to grab milk I spotted this BMW park up.

Just for fun I roughly counted the empty parking spots.

To his left in the main carpark I counted over 100 empty spots and 4 were within 6 metres of where he parked. To his right well over 80.

There’s no reason he should not stop there anyway. It doesn’t hinder anyone or anything.
A while ago TAMS/RoadACT just went crazy drawing all over the roads……..

You call THAT fun?

When I want to have fun, I count the cigarette butts in the gutters outside the local TAB.

But I do agree with you, totally. It’s important to do it roughly.

So I count them in a rough piratey voice. Do you use a piratey voice when you count the parking spots? Arrrr… there’s one! There’s anotherrrr…. And a thirrrrrrdd… and that makes fourrrr… within six metrrrrres….

I count them in German. Loudly. I also expectorate into a medically-approved receptacle at least once during the count. Oh, the fun I have …

Yep, see how faded those lines are? That’s because it’s the best parking spot in Hawker!

Nice choice. Looks shady too for the summertime.

There’s a category of driver that chooses to ignore painted roadlines. They cause some confusion on the merging lanes on Commonwealth Avenue.

In case you didn’t realise Brindabella, it’s not a parking spot. See the massive white lines blocking out that section of road?

Hey, this is my favourite parking spot also! Great access to the bakery, the PO boxes etc. Very convenient when you have just filled up with petrol and need a pie.

Love Hawker parking.

Maybe it’s broken down

Must be one of those “There is never enough parking at Hawker” protagonists flogging that poor, old dead horse again.

Will they never give up?
