Let me take a moment to talk about something that has nothing to do with movies, web comics or Marlon Brando. This is a little pet peeve of mine and I’m going to use my site as a soapbox for a second.

When you are parking your car on the street near a parking meter, there is a right way and a wrong way to leave your vehicle.



Think of the space between parking meters as a goal post in a football game. Park your car between the goal posts. Put your money in the meter in front of your car. This is the right way to park at a parking meter.



When you park your car directly in front of a meter, you end up taking more space than you should from the spot in front of you. This complicates parking for other motorists, not to mention puts your car door at risk of dings and dents from opening the door into the meter you’ve parked directly in front of. This is the wrong way to park at a parking meter.

If you insist on parking like an effin’ moron, please do not be surprised when someone firebombs your car and you return to a smoldering husk of twisted metal on the street.

Thank you for your cooperation.
