The other day, after parking my car in my neighborhood, and walking towards my building, a car pulled up and a guy stuck his head out the passenger window and said, “hey, you live over there?”
I said, “yeah?”
“And you parked over here?”
What business does this guy have with where any residents or anyone park their car, right? So I played along and said, “yeah.”
In response he said, “well, you shouldn’t.”
And before he leaves, I shouted “I’m a resident and street parking is open to the public!”
Look, public street is open to anyone with a running car and is subject to change according to the street signs and its re-enforcers. Anyone outside of that who tries to contradict that is simply asking for trouble.
So should I encounter a similar situation again, perhaps a better approach would be to laugh and ignore anyone who’s simply a troublemaker with nothing to show for but loud non-sense.
