So today someone thought it'd be a brilliant idea to park their scooter in the motorcycle parking. I'm not going to take a dig at how scooters aren't motorcycles just yet, but man was this person a complete ****ing twat. The 'motorcycle parking' was only a single car spot, so you had to be creative with angling your bike in to not take up all the space. You could fit about 7 or 8 bikes in easy though, and still leave them all enough space to get out. After having read a few posts (maybe even a thread) on here about moving other peoples bikes it was clear that touching someone else's pride and joy is a huge nono. I'd been in the position where I'd double parked a single bike in. I was in a rush and there was nowhere else to leave it, so I spent 5 minutes writing on a piece of paper my apologies, explaining that there was enough room for my bike but it came at the expense of blocking in his, and that should he have any problems moving mine he should give me a call and I'll come move it myself, and that if he wasn't up for waiting a couple of minutes I'd left my bars unlocked just so he could get it out of the way. I came back that afternoon to my bike placed neatly where the other bike I'd blocked in was initially, with "cheers mate" scrawled at the bottom of my note. Today I was the other bike. I can only wish that it were possible for me to double park myself. I'd got in (kind of) early, and squeezed into the last spot, and made sure I'd left enough room either side of my bike so the ones next to me could be stood up. Off to hand in an assignment and grab lunch. I return two hours later to this. To fill in the picture, theres a car on the left of the frame, adjacent to the blue scooter, and that pole is positioned almost halfway between the tree and the camry in that garden bed. I was trapped. Out of courtesy to the owner, having never taken a bike off a centre stand, and sharply recalling the one girl riding a scooter at the prelearners course dropping hers numerous times while trying to get it down, I did attempt to ride over the kerb. But I couldn't angle my bike so it was perpendicular because parking was already tight as it was, and turns out mulch isn't the greatest surface to ride a bike on. Scratch that, I'll just roll the scooter out then in. No I won't, because the tool left the steering locked. Incredibly pissed off at this point, with maybe 10 minutes gone since I'd stumbled across the scene I figured **** it, and called a mate who helped me pick up the scooter and leave it in the middle of the road. So if you own a baby blue scooter, and returned to find it not where you left it and didn't find the note I left informative enough (3 very carefully chosen words), here is my explanation, you utter moron. I hope security had it towed from where we left it. In all 5 bikes were blocked off by your scooter, and before I'd managed to get my helmet off and head into uni, I watched 3 separate riders look at that gap and then decide NOT to park there. Around 15 minutes wasted all in all, which sounds like nothing but would've been so much more if I didn't have someone offhand to help me move it. And finally, if you're so precious that you need to leave your bike/scooter locked in place, don't ****ing block someone else in.
