I found a Christmas related public service use for Duct tape today.
Local car-park this morning, council have decided free parking as a treat for Christmas Eve, notice on the central parking machine with free dates on it, however at least half the parking area is better served from the lower positioned machine. No notice on the lower machine, people still putting cash in it, machine still taking (not rejecting cash) and issuing tickets to those that don't know. I miss catching 2 people who fed the bottom machine cash whilst I checked the date on the main one. Caught another by calling to them before they fed in their change. So its Xmas eve what can I do about this. I know I am carting paper and pen, but how to fix as notice where it can be seen? Suddenly remember reel of duct tape in the boot/trunk of the car. Two minutes later bottom machine has a note taped to it referring to free parking on Xmas Eve notice on top machine.
I came back in about an hour to find the council parking attendant covering both machines up. I wonder what he thought of my note LOL, I drove off without a word. Merry Christmas local shoppers and MacGyver online friends!
