We live across from the elementary school, and the streets get crowded in the morning and afternoon with parents dropping their kids off at school and picking them up from school. I nominate for SS:
- The parent who decided to park in the middle of the street and then mosey over to take her kids to school. She was not happy when the security officer made her move the car.
- The parent who parked in our driveway and cursed up a storm when we told him to move. He thought we were being unreasonable because it would only take him a second to take his child to school. Never mind that it's our driveway and we were about to get into our car to go to work. It would be a problem for him to park in our driveway even if we weren't there, but at least he wouldn't be blocking us in.
- The parent who double-parked to wait for her child. She was in the car, but the way she was double-parked made it impossible for anyone behind her to pass without waiting for the other lane to clear.
- The parents who decided to stop at the end of our driveway to talk to each other, and then glared and made rude gestures when we asked them to move so we can get our car out.
I will love having the elementary school so close when DS is old enough to go to school, but right now it's really a pain.
