I attend Mass most mornings. Our church has a rather small parking lot, and during the week many spots are taken up by the church school that shares the lot; the faculty and parent volunteers park there, and there are two lanes for parents who are dropping off students because many students come from other towns and busing is not available. At the end of the very long street next to the church is a funeral home. There is no on-street parking on the other side of the church.
This morning I found that the parking spaces half-way down the block, on both sides, were blocked off with a sign that said "Please, no parking - funeral." This was not a sign erected by the town and obviously not enforceable.
I snagged one of the few remaining spaces left, but how rude would it have been to park in one on the blocked-off spaces? Many of the people who attend Mass are elderly, and not parking on that street would have meant a long walk from a side street for them. Also, Mass is over by 8:30, which is very early for a funeral to begin. When I left, none of the blocked spaces were filled.
Would one be consigned to Ehell for parking there?
