The worst and funniest attempt at being a car guard happened a few months ago when i was with a mate having a look at the estuary from the bridge side of the Angling Club. Two massive, noisy trucks turned up to ruin our idyllic moment but, thanks to the car guard, it was comical for a few minutes whilst he tried to instruct them how to best park.
Fact is that it isn’t a truck stop so i was disappointed when a bunch of SANParks employees only laughed at the car guard but failed to say anything to the drivers as they passed by.
So i took out my camera and proceeded to take photos of their license plates. The drivers got the message and immediately got back in and, after much more shuffling, departed.
Being a truck driver is a tough job so if i was them i’d probably try take a break somewhere beautiful too… but what’s bad for our town image cannot be allowed.
