I hate that this kid is driving a BMW because it just adds to the stereotype. It’s the one thing I don’t like about my car, and I try to, you know, use my blinker, and only take up one handicapped space at the grocery store (Kidding!!). And then people like this exist:

Here’s a hint: he’s not a visitor. This is where he parked AFTER being spoken to about parking ALL DAY in 30 minute spaces next to where he’s got a work-study job. Just for the record, he’s a student and is not allowed to park in faculty/staff lots, ever. Lots of students work on campus, doesn’t mean they can park wherever they want.

[updated, 1:50 p.m] - the car has not moved since 8:30 am and it has no ticket. This is how I feel:

So you know what I’m going to do? ....

go home and enjoy my weekend because I’m not a petty little troll who gets wound up to 11 because of someone else’s parking infraction. Right? Good. In fact I already bought beer and put it in my car, which is how I knew there was no ticket.

So instead of ticketing, UPD paid him a visit and said “dude you can’t park in a 30 minute space all day” so he moves his car across the street to a different faculty/staff lot but instead of parking in a regular space (still not allowed) he parks in the Visitor Only space, again, all day. Not a visitor.

So he gets reported (not even by me, actually) and what does he do? Repent and walk? HELL NAW, he just backed his car across the parking lot into a different space.

Literally 50 feet from where he was before. I saw this on my way home, so I walked to UPD - whose headquarters is, by the way, immediately adjacent to this parking lot, and reported this idiot. I’m not out to get him, but I could see his car from my window in the 30-min spaces - and by the way, so can all the Higher Ups at my work - I wasn’t the one to report him the first time. But I did hear he was spoken to, and now I can’t help but be irked when I see his car still parked illegally, still visible from my window and even closer to the police department!

So I came into work this morning, and what to my wondering eyes should appear? Yeah, you guessed it.

Parked one space over from the Visitor space. You can see this car from the window of the police station. I walked right in there and just said, “Look, I know you can’t stop all the parking shenanigans on this campus. But I believe you did this individual the courtesy of a talking-to instead of a ticket. And to keep doing this is just disrespectful; in my opinion, he needs a stronger lesson.”

I’d just call a tow truck straightaway if it were up to me.

Also he needs to crack a window to let some of that moisture out.
