Funny

I found a couple of photos from our recent trip to Dublin.

If you had an expensive fancy shiny red car, would you go leaving it around so that it would get clamped?


I would have it locked up in my big huge garage (with all my other cars of course), at my fancy big huge house!

They shud clamped those expensive cars parking at the road side towards ONE U. Got money buy expensive cars, no money to pay for car park?? Hahaha!

You didn't get it: it's the best way to avoid the car stolen.
Hahaha

c'est le tout nouveau modele avec protection antivol ;o) c'est bete que l'on ne puisse pas agrandir tes photos.

Gina : Yep – you’d think that he had money to pay for parking!

Froggy Woogie: It was a good way to attract attention anyway. People were laughing at the wheel clamp more than admiring the car!

Olivier: Ce n’est pas une mauvaise idée tu sais! C’est peut-être aussi un moyen d’éviter de payer pour se garer ?

Quant aux photos, oui, elles sont en format ‘petites’ mais normalement, quand on clique sur la photo, on peut au moins l’agrandir un peu – un truc qui ne marche plus avec Blogger peut-être ?
En tout cas, j’ai ajouté une autre photo pour que tu puisses lire le texte !

Ah! such sweet revenge ...
To see that people with expensive cars getting into trouble. Sour grapes? me? nooooo....

Just happy to know that rich people can get into trouble too. Got money does not mean one can park anywhere - so much ego, they think they can get away with anything. hahaha

Matt: Ta. And yes, that is my very own photo. And my bubble bracelet AND my bubble necklace! No, you can't have them!

JT: Heheh - yeah, it was funny. The clamp was attracting so much attention on the street. People were slowing down to laugh!

Possibly, the owner would have had to wait until the city sleeps before going to the authorities to pay the fine and get the car back.

Oh.. So you found my car parked on the street... Sorry... the garage is in the shop right now! : )

Really nice catch on that image.

If they put one of those things on my old car they could just keep it. ;)

ColourMeCrazy said...

Cirnelle: hehe - that's what I would have done! However, when we passed by in the evening, the car was gone!

IslandGirl: Hehe - Nice car! Hope it didn't cost too much ;-)

Manicblu: Thanks for stopping by! We don't have a car at the moment so no chance of us getting clamped!
