Last week an unidentified driver of a Mercedes car removed the barriers put up around an empty parking lot adjacent to a busy Edinburgh train station and parked his car. There was plenty of room after all, and he (or she?) obviously couldn’t see any reason to be inconvenienced by a totally empty lot.
Except that it had been blocked off so workers could resurface it.
Faced with the self-satisfied car just sitting there, the workers carefully cut a square of tarmac and left the car marooned there. The police are trying to contact the owner who will almost certainly be faced with a hefty fine.
I always thought I was a pretty nice person.
But I will admit that sometimes quiet revenge is so utterly satisfying.
