Mostly True Story

Jimmy was parked in a part of the park not intended for parking.
He wanted to park in the part of the park that was intended for parking, but there were no signs listing the part of the park intended for parking where Jimmy could park.
Douggy also wanted to park in the part of the park inteded for parking, but he saw that Jimmy was so confused about parking in the part of the park that was intended for parking that he parked his car in the middle of the park.
It was not right for Douggy to park his car in the middle of the park for it wasn’t intended for parking.

In the end both their cars were towed because they were parked in a part of the park that was not intended for parking.

But it’s not MY car trouble.
I live next to a park in Kanata, and in front of this park is, what appears to be, a parking lot. It’s gravel, it’s rectangular, and by all appearances, cars can go on top of it.
So my roomies decide that they will park their cars on this seemingly innocent parking lot.
All was good for a few months, but then disaster struck, they got towed.
They got towed on Friday the 13th. Seems appropriate.
They were not notified of course, the city doesn’t work that way, but they neighbours knew about it and left a note for us.
Now it’ll cost $120 + $15/day to get the cars back. Jim has already done so, not that he was happy about it, and he will be taking it to court since there are NO signs posted stating anything about parking, good or otherwise.
Doug will probably not get his car out, in fact he’s thinking of calling a junk yard to see if they’ll give him enough money to pay for the car, he just wants the stereo.

All is not great in this land overwhich I observe, but it really can’t get any worse.

I suppose this is the advantage of owning only one car.
