I'm feeling supremely unpopular this week, thanks to the boys in blue turning up on Thursday and Friday and booking large numbers of stupid parkers on both streets outside the school. I must have had two dozen extremely irate parents doing their fingerpointing/chest poking routine at me, wanting to know who was responsible for them getting a ticket for parking in a no standing/bus zone/2 minute zone. Seriously....'I've just found a ticket on my windshield for parking in a no standing zone....who's resposible for it??'. And when I asked them who parked the car, I was rewarded with lazer beam eyeballs and requests for my superior's phone number. (She's gonna have a busy week). Plus one threat to inform the Prime Minister that I was behaving in a totally unreasonable manner and putting small children's lives at risk by not allowing their parents to double park in the face of oncoming council buses. All in all, probably the two most supremely satifying and enjoyable days at work I've ever had.
And Julia.....if you're reading this, don't worry about responding. I know you're on my side.
