Smart or not?
I live in a great apartment on a really cute little street in a nice neighborhood. Although residential, most of the buildings are multi-family buildings. The smallest housing 3 families. The rest are apartment buildings and condos and even a hotel. My building and the building next door, like many of the buildings on my street, have underground parking. The space has a combination of individual garages and parking places. However, noone uses it. There is a steep decline, a sharp right turn and most of the people in these two buildings own big cars. Everyone parks on the street. This, coupled with the fact that we live within walking distance to a restaurant, a popular coffee shop and a tea salon, results in a parking problem.
As you can see in the photo above, the Smart car was parked in the worst possible spot. It is parked right smack in the middle of a space that usually holds 2 medium sized or 1 large and 1 small car. (The small car is usually mine - a Fiat Seicento).
Smart car? Maybe. Smart owner? No way. Smart ass? Yes, definitely!
