Under The Spell

IT HAS BEEN ANNOYING FOR YEARS, AND IT’S STILL THERE!

Bella Napoli Shawlands Shop Sign with Spelling Error

Despite a variety of alterations and modifications to the restaurant and shop over the years, Bella Napoli in Shawlands has never seen fit to fix the sign with the spelling mistake — even though it is the first thing you see when you walk in the door! (Click on the picture to enlarge).

This sign has been there from the very first day the place opened (which was when I first noticed that they couldn’t spell “sandwiches”). I would even forgive the weird extra apostrophe at the end of “Deli”, but not the extra “H”!

Three Cars Use 14 Car Parking Bays!

CAR PARKING IN A CAR PARK SHOULD BE PART OF THE DRIVING TEST.

Not just in multi-story car parks, but in ALL car parks; people just do not seem to understand them!

I thought I’d seen it all when I saw kids abusing disabled spaces (see Asian Youth Flexing), and when I saw folk who couldn’t be bothered to find a parking bay abandon their four by four in a car park (see Urban Off-Road Adventures).

However, these pale into insignificance with what I saw at the weekend [Click on pics to enlarge]. Yes, things are getting worse!

Unusual car parking inside a car park A better view of daft car parking

For some unknown reason, three cars were found in a car park, parked neatly across the access roadway — completely avoiding the car parking bays! This meant that cars (coming both ways) had to drive AROUND these cars — by using proper car parking bays as a route.

This workaround route meant that between five and seven car parking space ON EACH SIDE had to be kept free and clear to avoid a blockage — thus three cars managed to effectively take up between 10 and 14 car parking bays! Brilliant!
