Hang on, hang on.
Dana's Mum has achieved a parking victory.
Mine would have long since been arrested for her parking given that she doesn't have a driving licence. Or her own car.

Congrats Danimum.
And Foot. Although I always think of Last Exit to Brooklyn when I think of Bennies. You may be better off witout them...

Sorry for the mix up. Hooray for DANA's mom. I think I got so wrapped up in the story that by the time I responded I'd forgotten who was posting. (That's what I get for posting in the middle of the night, up with the baby.)

Thanks guys:) I'm so pleased for her. Bad enough the bastards have bullied her out of her parking space and pretty much used the police to further their own little land grab, but at least she isn't going to get treated like a criminal and slammed with fines and points!

@ 3ft: way to go mate! well done you.

Ta honey :)

What was so awful about the whole thing, was that the bastard copper who lives on that little road, was so clearly abusing his power to bully mum.

Dana, so it has always been between the frog and the mouse.

Just got finger printed for the new job. No whiz quiz, but a Crimean background Czech.

Working as a mentos/Tudor to a flock of high schoolers with varying degrees of eptitude.

Starting shortly. A big change.

That sounds like a good gig.

Are you going to tell stories about your paleo hunting tools and shooting woodchucks from your dining room? I had a teacher like that. I loved his stories, but it might not fly today.

As long as he doesn't talk about the Tibetan monks. No religion in the schools!

Actually this program is the kind of program that would want people like me as members.

A saint can't rescue a sinner, only a sinner can rescue a sinner.

You'll be awesome. Not as a sinner rescuing sinners, but as a smart/savvy/sharp guy who can wow the redeemable few and give them something to think about.

You'll make a difference, foot. Tell your stories and interweave all your smarts. They'll tell their friends about you.

I've gotten a bit of contract work in my area of expertise. It's not very much but the guy swears it will lead to more work later. Everybody says that, but this guy seems more trustworthy.

orthodoc 08-27-2013 01:46 PM

Nice! I've had a temporary job develop into something more ... hope this works that way for you.

DanaC 08-27-2013 02:51 PM

Yey:) Nice going UT.
