Correspondence about parking

A reader emails about my car parking posts.

Hi Whale I’m a concerned reader and  I find myself in complete agreement with your shaming of idiot parkers.

I’m personally gutted that NZ on Air hasn’t thrown truckloads of cash at you to create  the much needed TV Show – The Parking Hunt!

However, I am fearful of the omnipresent Whale Army and know it was going to be matter of time before my own lack of parking prowess was exposed. Hence I am dobbing myself in and throwing my failings at the mercy of you and the Whale Army.

However, Whale, what I’m asking is am I at fault, or is the Blue Holden Commodore criminally negligent for taking up space at the front of my park? 

I understand your judgement will be binding.

But please, please don’t throw me out of the Army, because I only have you and Greypower in my life.

Having a look at the photo below it is certainly reasonable to blame the “blue” car for your distress. Your parking is certainly better than David Farrar’s efforts.

    Hard to tell what parking crime the Concerned Reader has committed, other than the obligatory having to catch a bus to get to the kerb.

    I’d say if the commodores parking caused you to then in turn take up some of the car park space behind you then you shouldn’t park there at all – because the blue car may have had the same dilemma – and it’s no excuse.

        Oh! It was your parking Blobby. Why else would you be so vulgar?

    That blue Holden has some rather distinctive attachments in the rear window. Police should know better than to park like this.

    You could have tied the drain cover to his tow ball and then hid in the bushes and produced a much better picture.

    does any “authorised business entity” feel like getting a report just for shiggles?

  • cows4me

    No it’s a scabby arsed Holden and it should have been towed and crushed.

    • Guest

      It’s a million times better than your disease ridden ford.

        V8 races today C4M and Guest. Holden won (of course) only 2 fords in the top 10.

          They just had a lucky day. :-)

    I smell Farrar.
