Before I get to the photos, I want to share something, as by the time I get home from work, 10 hours from now, it will not be as fresh in my mind.
Illegal paring paddle board chick's SUV was in its usual, illegal, spot. I temporarily parked my car, got the kayak off, and took it to the bank. Bent over to pick up a piece of green foam tubing, and water bottle, to toss in the nearby trash can. Then I saw a pile of sandals, and realized not only is illegal parking paddle board chick (IPPC) to lazy to park her SUV where she should, she's to lazy to make the short walk to her illegally parked SUV to put her belongings inside. I hope some of the Department of Corrections workers at Fort Maitland this morning grabbed the sandals for their own use.
When I returned IPPC and a male companion were putting the last paddle board on the roof. I walked over, and asked how does one get a pass to park in a no parking zone. She said she does not have a pass, and was just loading. I told her I knew that was not true, she leaves her SUV in the same spot almost every Wednesday morning. Male companion said "On Saturday, when the lot was full, people park here all the time" It was Wednesday, and there was plenty of room in the parking lot. They asked if they were in my way. I said no, but she should set a better example. After all, she brings people to the park and should encourage them to follow the rules, "You look to be in much better shape than me" I said, "you should have no problem walking from the parking lot" Lying male companion again said."We are just loading" "Bullshit" I replied. Illegal parking paddle board bitch then said she has no intention of parking anywhere else. I despise rich, self-entitled people. I'll give her a chance to see the error of her ways, but if I see the SUV illegally parked again, I'm reporting it to the City of Maitland.
If the SUV is parked where it should, she will be referred to as paddle boarding lady.
