Space issues

The number of dumpsters and contruction sites grows every other day in my neighbourhood. Whenever I get home, someone else parked his freaking dumpster on the street occupying another 2-4 parking spaces. Then add or take a couple moving companies putting up a “no parking” sign for half the street or maybe another movie production company – make that a block.

And last but not least there’s the notorious “I don’t give a fuck” type of driver who parks just like the parking space to person ratio is 10:1.

All of theses factors made the “finding a parking space” game (aka the infamous Parkplatzroulett) reach a new degree of difficulty.

Good thing there is people watching out when you park a bit un-common.

At first, there is police patroling the streets – giving out tickets for everyone who was too late last night. And then there are always the nice neighbours from next door who call the cops on you and in the meantime break off your windshield wipers or leave marks on your car using keys and what not.

    I am considering the horse. Will have to talk to my land lord though – but since we got a backyard, there might not be a problem. 8)

    Btw, I got a bike. I use it frequently. Just not always. Sometimes I need to get to the other side of the city without needing a shower before I talk to clients. :P
