Just like in Southie, Eastie residents feel pretty particular about their parking spots.
Who could blame them….I don’t own a car but I sure as HELL would sit there with a shotgun if I had dug out my car after the blizzard and some poptart decides to take advantage of my sweat and tears.
Needless to say, people put things into their parking spots when they drive away.
Yesterday afternoon, I was at a friend’s house who lives up the street. He was having a little New Year’s soiree. I was sipping on some Chardonnay (hey, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, possums!) and we were discussing if I was a gay man in my previous life (true story).
Suddenly, my friend’s house guest from England walks into the condo after having a smoke outside.
“Dude, those two guys just tried to steal your chairs!”
My friend has two folding IKEA chairs that are actually quiet nice for his parking spot blocking. Leave it to one of my gays to put out stylish chairs ;)
But then his friend continued “Your neighbor across the street lost his shit, yelled at them and chased them down the street.”
Another reason Eastie is a great neighborhood. Neighbors look out for you. And your parking spot.
