Last year when Marius drove over from Limburg to the boat and brought the sofa cushions, he parked his car. The moment he opened the hatch to Jan-kees, Daniel popped a bottle of Hertog-Jan for him. 10 minutes later a knock on the door and a stranger peeked in, pointed to Marius and said ” you were going to move your car”. Bewildered looks from all of us, and Marius explained that the spot he parked on was next to a disabled spot, and the guy who lived in front of it asked Marius to move his car. So we did. Fast forward to this year……Every year when we rent a car we rent a small one, and some people commented on that so this year we rented the extra van of Daniel, one reason si to give him some $ and just because it would be handy to move stuff. Because there was construction on the spot where we normally can park, we had to park in the same street as Marius did last year…do I have to continue…?
So 3 days later we used the van to move some stuff and drive to Renata and Remy. When we came back we started parking the car in a different spot, and the moment I steered that car onto the spot, a male walked to us qnd asked how long we were going to park there. I looked bewildered and said one day….he replied it was blocking his mothers view….which view was smaller passenger cars and the other side of the street. He did tell us there was a BIG parking lot at the end of the street. But I was too tired to bother, besides the street is PUBLIC parking. The old lady was quite agitated, because…”YOUR BIG VAN was parked 3 days over there blocking part of everybodies view” The next day we stepped in the truck and started backing up.. I was barely out of my spot and 2 cars stopped, the driver stepped out and were reminding us that there was a BIG parking lot 100 meters at the end of the street, and they don’t like seeing big vans parked here.
Wow I feel sorry for these people who have nothing better to do .
Update…so we parked the car on the BIG EMPTY car lot, and after being gone the weekend…I parked the car there again……while driving into the lot I saw a pair of eyes follow me. Locked the doors and started to walk away when I heard . ” Can’t you park this van in front of your house” . lol wow
