Photo: Venice Resident Blasts People With Jobs In Obnoxious Parking Note
Sure, we know parking's tight in Venice, especially near Abbot Kinney Boulevard, but one person decided to make it known to all the folks who work in the neighborhood by putting angry notes on their cars telling them that permit parking is coming. And yes, as with all correspondence that's meant to be taken seriously, this one was written in comic sans font.
Someone posted a photo of one of these notes on Reddit today, and said that this letter was placed on every car on Electric Avenue, which runs parallel to bustling Abbott Kinney Boulevard, one street over. It reads:
If you don't live in this neighborhood, but park here because your job doesn't provide parking, guess what? You're part of a problem that will be resolved soon. Permit parking is coming!
Your irresponsible company has made this happen, so please thank them for us.
Unlike your boss, once it goes into effect you'll be the one frantically driving around looking for any space to park—something the residents here have been doing for too long.
