The naked truth

Oooh Matron! This blog has just suffered from a brief attack of the Trolls. The normally polite, nay almost genteel ‘comments’ section has just blossomed with abuse. It’s nothing special or even witty, just the usual lashing out by those with frontal lobes in shutdown mode. You know, the kind of stuff you hear every day on the streets casting aspersions upon ones sexuality / parentage / intelligence. It’s a mercy we Parking Enforcers can only catch people who are more stupid than we are eh?

For my more sensitive readers sake, I feel moved to switch moderation for comments to ‘on’. Sorry folks, you know how I feel about freedom of speech, but abuse is hardly free speech.

If anything, such insults give me a reason to keep doing what I’m doing because my job is having an effect where it matters. To be honest I’d have quit from terminal boredom long ago if I wasn’t desperate for the money, and the job isn’t that badly paid for an occasionally erudite, superannuated ex techie who will never get a job in his chosen field of endeavour again. Sad to say I must accept this as the naked truth of the matter. In these uncertain times a similar fate will no doubt come to many of us.

See you out there.

You keep going Bill. The blog is brilliant, and I am much more sympathetic towards PEOs in general thanks to you.

Your blog would be much missed - glad to hear that you're going to keep it up. I also agree with country cottage that it has made me much more understanding of PEOs!

Hey Bill,

Just an appreciative fan making himself known... never thought a Parking Attendants Blog could be so interesting! Always appreciate your thoughts on the mentally decrepit selection of the General Public you encounter.

Keep up the good work, i'm bored at work on a permanent basis and need all the entertainment I can get!

Cheers, IMD

Hi Bill, I enjoy your blog. Thanks!

You said "superannuated ex techie who will never get a job in his chosen field of endeavour again". I may have missed something in your archives, but are you able/willing to elaborate as to why it is that you will never get a job in that field again? Perhaps if you give a few details of what your field is (yes it's techie, but that's a bit general), something may "pop up" through one of your readers (although I think that any reader thinking of this would have to make it a condition that you kept on blogging!)

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
