A photoblog about Russian tourists failing to park in Lappeenranta.
You can't always make it!
Typical ‘new russian’ – ‘center of Univerce’. It’s quite usual picture here, all over Russia. Of course, you can say us – 'it must be your, Russian, problems, why does it become Finnish'.. Sad to admit, but these ‘centers’ through the lack of brain never know the proverb ‘meddle not in the stranger monastery with your Charter’. «Не суйся в чужой монастырь со своим уставом» - товарищи это в школе не проходили.
There has been talk in Finland of increasing the size of these standard parking slots because the average cars people drive have gotten bigger. This Mercedes driver is only ahead of the times ;) No, seriously, you can`t open the car doors now without hitting the cars parked next to you (or vice versa). I have a van (VW Caravelle) and really hate all the blemishes it has gotten from people carelessly banging their doors against it. Want to avoid that -> park like this Mercedes!
Finland is a class-free society (with a few exceptions such as a notorious ex-professor-now-banker) where most people believe in the system and regulations, and treat each other accordingly, be it parking or whatever collaboration. I sincerely believe that the majority of Russians also would like it to be so but just take a minute to think about how citizens are treated by other citizens in the Russian army, in some southern republics, or how this Merc driver behaves at work towards his subordinates. What can you expect?
Almost maximum points of stupidity for causing trouble for *three* other drivers. If only this was done on four handicapped parking spots the price of maximum dumbass award would have been achieved.
I know how to park my Mercedes between the lines :-)
Should be fined 10,000! Car painted pink. Windows smashed... and so on... next time he/she will be more careful.
I've just voted for the Nr 10, but this one is also incredible. Really "proud" for my countrymen (-women with blond hair as smbd said here)
Just because he CAN. ;-)
