Parking Woes...

If you are parked on the sidewalk, and I walk up to your driver window and ask you to refrain from parking on the sidewalk in the future, do me a favor...

Just say "Okay, I will refrain from parking on the sidewalk in the future, Officer." and remove your vehicle from my sidewalk.

Do not, however, tell me you only parked there because your daughter needs to get to school.

If you tell me this, and I point out a legal parking space twenty feet away, do not tell me "That's too far for her to walk."

If you should, for some reason, decide to say this to me anyway, and I reiterate that you should not park on the sidewalk unless you'd like to receive a parking ticket, do not, under any circumstances, tell me "Well, it's raining and I have a baby in the car."

If you do tell me this, and I decide to write you the parking ticket for parking on the sidewalk instead of letting you leave with the warning I had originally intended to give you, please do not get pissed off and squeal your tires as you pull away.

Finally, if you do decide to squeal your tires as you pull away, do not be surprised when I pull you over and cite you for exhibition of speed.

You have been warned...

Oh, there is nothing I hate more than school drop-off!! If they'd just follow the rules - pull up, put out kid out of car, drive off.. Drop off in the drop off lane is like the drive-thru, it doesn't mean driver parks, gets out and goes in! But, so many think that their precious darling deserves so much better than the other kids.. Why?! Don't you understand that Lyndsi, Jaden, River, et al, is special!?! Sheesh...

I get assigned to work "parking problems" at a particular school every now and then. It's entire 550 yard sidewalk is posted no unattended vehicles / drop off only. Well, geez, if that isn't an excuse to just walk back and forth and slap parking tickets on all the unattended vehicles. I get many parents, some teachers, and even a vice principal who argued, "I was just dropping off some supplies, and then going to park! Your out here to police the parents!" Not so much there sporty. I'm here to bring equal humiliation to all who defy the almighty sign! - Officer

Lyndsi, Jayden, River...

Shareeka, Shaquanna, Lamichael...

We run the gamut here.

We have the hippie names from Berkeley and the "ethnic" names from Oakland.

I'm just waiting for some confused parent to name their child Latoya Lyndsi or something like that...
