    Baaadddd parking

    There's a disabled chap down my road and his mum and dad come to visit every now and then, and this is how the father parks









    I could 'almost' understand it if he had the son in the car (he's a big guy), and it might be hard for him to get out of the car and up the curb straight away, but this fella really shouldn't be driving IMO. He slips the clutch soooooooooo badly when he's reversing, the car screams, and he is the only person I know who can get from his parking space to the end of the road (approx 200 yards) in first gear, but at about 20mph and doesn't notice the poor car protesting lol

    But with that parking, god knows how it hasn't been hit yet!

    Get a tape measure and piece of chalk, draw a double-ended arrow from the kerb to the side of the car, then write the distance in feet and inches alongside the arrow.

    Not sure what it will accomplish, but it's the sort of thing I'd do

    The road is too wet, and I might get spotted as its parked right outside where the guy lives lol

    Oh, and my blinking tapemeasure has gone missing

    Just tell them you're with the council, measuring up to see how much pavement needs laying to reach the car
