Sorry no trucks are allowed to park here, your going to have to leave!
I get so fuck tired of hearing “sorry sir you can’t park here”, from it seems like ever one and their mother. Ask any driver out there what is the biggest concern is in their day to day operation? You will hear “I hope I can find a spot to park tonight”. WOW, yeah I know I was shocked too, I thought they would have said “why don’t the truck stop offer more commercial company at this location?” I was wrong to, I digress. Some cities seem to have what appears to be at least a half baked plan for truck parking, while others don’t give a fucking shit! Orlando, FL falls in the I DON’T GIVE A SHIT CATEGORY.
I delivered there this past Monday morning and found myself in a huge fucking mess trying to find a place to park. (among other problems, I hope to maybe make a video about at some point) After pussy farting around half the morning looking, I found what looked like the only parking spot left in all of Orlando, FL. It was in a run down part of town around the corner from the Greyhound bus station off of John Young parkway. I was looking to rest however this area is the type of place you keep one eye open, I was not happy to be parking here.
Three hours into my rest I get a bang on the door I am like “fuck it is the cops” WRONG. It is the business owner across the street he says to me “can you please move your truck, you’re blocking our view”. I am like “um, what do you mean this is a legal parking spot no signs saying no truck parking”. He explains to me “We park our vehicles in that lot next to you and often times thugs break into our cars or steal them, so with you parked here we can’t monitor the activity of that lot”. I moved my truck for the man, not because I felt any concern for his situation rather I was worried about my own damn self!
I went down W. Colonial parkway(because everything in FL is a parkway, even the alley ways) till I found another semi parked, signs again all over the place saying “no semi parking you will get yo ass towed bitch” seriously that is what the sign said. I went in the shop asked the owner if I could park he agreed. I could not believe it I got good rest at this location and no hookers or drug dealers to worry about.
That was the short version of that story, as I forget the rest of the bullshit. I am a firm believer in moving forward I have no time to dwell on the downsides. If I did I could end up like this dude who I was reading about. The guy had been parking his rig on his street for years. Several months ago, however, he found that his favorite parking spot had become a no-parking zone, following the completion of the pedestrian mall in the city center, but he continued parking there anyway.
City parking inspectors apparently didn’t care about the “historic connection” between the truck driver and his parking spot, and they began ticketing his truck every time they found it in a space where parking was now prohibited.
The 52-year-old truck driver’s fury over the tickets allegedly got the better of him. He was arrested yesterday on suspicion of setting fire Tuesday night to the offices of the enforcement division of his local Municipality. The offices, which were housed in trailers, were totally destroyed, but no one was injured. One witness reported seeing the suspect arrive at the scene, torch the premises and flee the scene in a passenger car. The witness also reportedly saw part of the vehicle’s license number.
An hour later, police tracked down the person whom they believed to be the owner of the car, based on the license plate, and questioned him. He told police that he had lent the car to a friend. When police arrived at the home of the friend – the truck driver – they found a hooded sweatshirt that smelled of gasoline. The hood of the car, which was parked outside, was still warm.
They detained the driver, who initially denied involvement in the blaze but under interrogation confessed to the arson as revenge against the the parking inspectors. The suspect was taken to the scene of the fire, where he reenacted the crime for officers. He was brought before a judge for a remand hearing, during which police asked that he remain in custody.
I have been getting the same kind of treatment in my town for the last 5 years or so but damn. He took that shit far eh? What about you, do you get fucked around like this too? Leave a message in the comments section below share your story with me.
