Alert “06880” reader — and downtown employee — Susan Shuldman parked in the Baldwin lot today.
When she returned to her car, she saw this:
Her car is the dark blue one in the center, parked in the yellow spot, facing a similarly legally parked silver vehicle.
And there — 4 inches from Susan’s rear bumper — is another car.
Smack in the middle of the parking lot.
Susan called the police. When the officer arrived, he noticed that the illegally parked car was unlocked. The keys were in the console.
The cop moved the car into a vacant spot. Susan — finally — was on her way.
So this was not somebody who dashed into Serena & Lily to pick up a quick bedroom set or whatever. He (or she) was there for quite a while.
“I guess the driver thought they were being considerate by leaving the keys!” Susan says magnanimously.
I would add something here.
But there are no words.
