We've spent quite some time on a possible holiday later in the year, including us visiting the travel agent and provisionally booking a Mediterranean Cruise. Today we cancelled. Nothing was working about the holiday and our excitement levels were zero. That is not how it should be when you are spending heaps of money.
The blog has been neglected and there may be some repercussions for a time. But here we go, I have something for today.
Breaking laws on our roads make me very cross, unless it is me doing it. I have never been booked for any road offence in my life and my last parking ticket was in 1977. Work is trying to lumber a speeding fine in a work car on me. As if I would ruin my reputation in a crappy work car. I am happy because if work can't identify who was driving the car, and it certainly wasn't me, then they have to pay a huge fine.
There is one offence I think is beyond the pale, that is an able bodied person parking in a disabled space, maybe handicapped parking space in other places.
While I do believe there are a number of people who have a disabled pass to display on their car who are not entitled to it, that is another matter. It is so tempting to take the law into your own hands when the law does not work. Here a couple of clips of where a group of folk really did take the law into their own hands in two clips.
This clip is a bit long. There are shorter versions on the the net but I think the full clip is appropriate. I thoroughly approve of this action in Brazil, as did the crowd who waited in anticipation to see the bunfight when the offender to return to his car.
I am not sure I really approve of the spray painting offenders' cars, but the cost for removal might be about the same as a fine. I rather like the offending shopping laden rich women returning to their cars to find a surprise, again in Brazil.
Is the sound very clear on this? I think not. It is a while since I saw this clip but from memory it is in California and towards the end, a woman ended up with two fines of around $700 each. A fine for parking in a disabled place to which she was not allowed and something like impersonating a disabled person to park in a disabled space. $1400 is a good fine deterrent to parking in a disabled space. Schadenfreude is a good feeling.
