Night Sky Posted September 27, 2009 Share Posted September 27, 2009 (edited) I was driving on the road that goes round the back of the Strand Shopping centre and on towards the back of M&S. No excuse for rudeness from the traffic warden, but I have to say you could have been a little more patient (for a few minutes). That road backs onto many shops which have to get stocked, without oodles of delivery trucks/vans travelling the length of Strand Street, and then carrying stock to the back of the shop through the shop. Trucks sometimes have to block roads delivering, or take up both carriageways manouvering, and it is amazing over here just how many drivers and pedestrians (some with prams) are too impatient and risk rushing through gaps etc. even when a truck is in the middle of manouvering etc. Maybe it was the wardens way of telling you to be patient - maybe he saw the truck pull up, and you later approach it on his walk towards it much further down the road? - that his telling you that maybe you were being an impatient arse without saying it to your face? That road is narrow at the best of times and should be avoided if possible IMO, with all too many skinflints and piss-poor parkers blocking it parking at the Safeway end and at the M&S end, when there are parking and disabled facilities for people at both shops. You'd have got short shrift even from many a truck driver I suspect, if he'd just pulled up to deliver for a few minutes, and you expected him to keep going just so you could get past - he might only get one delivery in a day at that rate. I disagree with you. He shouldn't have been a lazy ass an parked right outside the shop where it was narrow. There are wider parts where he could pull in and cars could still get past. I'm sure a 20-50 yard walk wouldn't have held him up too long on his days chours. So you are saying sometimes its ok to break the law? Strange outlook to say the least......maybe I will use that one...... You argument about the warden is entirly hyperthetical too. That was not my main gripe either it was the mentality and attitude of the warden. Sounds to me you are disagreeing just for the sake of it IMHO.
