The 1st reaction to many “06880” entitled-parking photos is: “WTF?”
The 2nd is: “Where are the cops?”
Often, they’re powerless. They can’t intervene in private lots.
But Parker Harding Plaza is town-owned. Alert “06880” reader Amy Swanson captured this scene yesterday, around 3 pm:
The woman in the Volvo decided her needs were more pressing than the owners of the 3 cars she blocked in, and left her car there for at least 10-15 minutes. Here she is trying to explain her way out of it.
One of the blocked drivers leaned into the car and said, “It’s people like you who give this town a bad name!”
In fact, there is a name for people like the Volvo driver. Too bad I can’t print it — this is a family-friendly blog.
