Hey, want to hear something really stupid?

So, we have a special, secret, free parking space that we use when we go into Boston to see the Sox. It's not exactly 'legal,' but no one seems to police it, and we've found it a very cheap, convenient alternative to taking a cab all the way in and out of the city, and to driving all the way in and being raped on parking fees. Also, it allows us not to have to leave the house three hours before game time to allow for the MBTA to do its usual bad job of transporting us from point A to point B too slowly, and packed in like cattle, because they seem to refuse to add extra trains, buses, and trips on game days.

Anyway, as we were pulling in to our special spot (it's near Cleveland Circle, but that's all I'll say), this guy pulls up and asks if this is legal parking for the game. We say, "well, we've always had good luck here. It's not supposed to be free parking for people who aren't (business name withheld) customers, but we've parked here for 10 years and never had a problem."

Listen to what this idiot says: "Well, I've been driving around for an hour looking for parking and I'm beginning to get frustrated. There's a reason I'm a Yankee fan."

Ummmmm....WHAT?

What a dick! Hey, we know parking is an issue in Boston - has been for years. It's one of the city's main drawbacks - not enough parking, and where you're lucky enough to find it, it's far too expensive. You have to be creative about finding alternatives to driving everywhere you go, unless you want to deal with an overcrowded, inefficient, slow public transportation system. But really...Is it any better in New York? I don't think so, Jack.

And in any case - I'm so glad this guy's being a Yankee fan has to do with parking - and not something as trivial as...oh, I don't know...the team.

God, what a twat. he might as well have said, 'hey there's a reason my balls hang to the left and I only eat cured ham.' WTF has parking got to do with baseball? Unless I'm missing out on something being Jemima Foreignlass and all.

Ignorance must be bliss up in Beantown. FYI - NYC has an excellent subway and bus system that takes NYers almost anywhere they wish to go, 24 hours a day! When was the last time you took public transportation in NY? Everything is better in NY.

once again, the anonymous commenter misses the point entirely.

You may be right about the subway system - but is THAT how you're going to choose your baseball team?

Asshole.

I'm guessing he was driving something unparkable and boat-like anyway - that type of person frequently is. What a rude git.

Just so there's no confusion, the anon who commented on Bacardi, and the jackass singing the praises of the NY subway system are two different anonymati...not that it matters I guess.
