It was an old wife who rammed 4 cars before 'parking' there, getting out an saying "I'm allright, I'm allright"

According to my source (Poolhaddock, he sent me a picture from his mobile) it happened yesterday at the north end of St Olaf Street. It was on radio SShetland that she's been reported to the Procurator Fiscal!

Thanks for sharing the photos. Crazy!. I have been driving for nearly 40 years and I dont think I could get a car parked like that if I wanted to. That said I hope the driver really is ok.

Stamping up and down now.

I got my other half to take a picture of some pillock who had parked his car 4 (FOUR) feet from the pavement outside one of the takeaways.

He got out of his car and took a look at his parking. He looked at me and I thought that he would be too embarrased to leave it like that - No, he just walked off and left it.

Must have been a woman in drag - can't have been a real man.

Sadly I have binned the evidence.

That comes from fishermen leaving their boats tied up and allowing some space for the tide to push the boat closer to the quay. Or so I was told by a drunken pole in Buckie.

I'm not convinced. It doesn't look like it's outside your house, a pub, or the dole office...
