Despite signage clearly stating that you cannot do this, a Watsonia man has parked in the parking bay of a local supermarket but not actually gone to the aforementioned supermarket. Instead, the man visited a variety of shops along the Watsonia Road strip, before returning to his car and driving home.
Observers were angered by the obvious flouting of the rules, with one verbally abusing the man and referring to him as a “grub”. When we attempted to speak to the man before he drove off, he told us to mind our own business and “cover some real stories about real things”.
While we were initially offended by these comments, we soon realised they were the words of a man who knew he was in the wrong, so was merely acting out at others. Shame on you mate, you’ve broken the rules, and you’ve slighted the Bugle.
