My friend and author Roberto Sastre (see older blogpost), has discoverd in the Facebook group from New Zealand:

“You’ve got my Car Park, want my Disability too?”

a post about a trend-setting disabled parking place sign with the text of the director of a towing company who got tired of all the silly excuses of the disabled parking place occupiers…

Brilliant… please read below what the group admin and the director of the towing company have to tell ;-)

We just received an email from the Director of New Zealand Towing Ltd based in Royal Oak. He has come up with this sign because he was tired of all the silly excuses so listed the 3 most common ones.

He said he was a huge supporter of our page & has even gone out & purchased digital cameras each for all of his Tow Trucks so that they can take photos of cars parked illegally in Mobility Parking Spaces & send them to our page!

He then told us the 6 rules he goes by before towing a person parked in a Mobility Parking Space, they are as follows…..

“1. No pass its towed – charged full price

2. Forgot to display and are abusive – charged full price.

3. Forgot to display and are polite – charged half price (Personal agreement with CCS Royal Oak staff who are just great people)

4. Have good reason why it not displayed – returned FREE OF CHARGE (Again a Personal agreement with CCS Royal oak staff)

Example: Hands crippled with arthritis and 87 year old lady could not open her purse because she forgot to renew her medication which is what she was doing when we towed it away – I paid for taxi to our yard gave her a cup of tea opened her medication bottle so she could be pain free and once she was ok she left at no cost one happy lady. (Yes Towies have hearts….well I do)

5. Expired pass by more than 3 months its towed even if displayed and CCS called to check if new pass issued if they have valid pass but displayed wrong one its a free return but expired pass cut up. If not renewed and just parking on expired pass – charged full price and pass turned in to confetti (I would love to charge double on these rat bags who only had a temp pass but still use 1-5 year old expired pass)

last rule but its more common sense “If vehicle has wheel chair lift access we don’t touch it even if no pass displayed”

Original and unopened item!

A cup of probably still delicious

MAMA noodles

in “Palo-Duck” flavour, still from my pedestrian times, for sale.

I am parting with a heavy heart from this emergency ration!

Because there is no “best before” date on it, the content should still be in an acceptable condition. A must for each gourmet…

The visual deformations of the cup are caused by the momentum.

Product will go for the best offer. In the comment please!!!

Funny which stuff one can find in the store-room ;-)

Eigude Shame Part X

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010


I might seem to be a notorious complainer sometimes, but some companies get away with stuff that’s a bit too cheeky.
The photos were made on 05.10.2010.

Tested “good” by the German product test foundation in 4/2006!
When the DVDs were tested I was still pedestrian.

Eigude Shame VI – Addendum

Thursday, July 1st, 2010


As described in my blogpost Eigude Shame VI (see older blogpost) it was then impossible to worm out of a

bottle of grease

the grease for my hand cycle chain because the hole was way too small. After extensive correspondence with the supplier I was sent a

bottle of oil

free of charge. The resemblance with the

bottle of grease

is misleading. I can’t imagine that such a renowned German company sells grease and oil in the same packaging. Probably it is a manufacturing error.
I still don’t know how I can get the grease out of the bottle, but instead I can now start looking for a

collection point for hazardous material

for the bottle of grease.
This could be the destination of my next hand cycle tour .

This stuff is really

hazardous material.

I should have been informed better upfront!

Eigude Shame VI

Thursday, June 17th, 2010


My hand cycle chain was yelling for oil or grease.
This wish was my command, and I purchased a bottle of

German multi-purpose grease with the little chimney sweaper.

The top of the bottle was regularly cut off so that it was still possible to close it.
Now it was all squeezing, squeezing, squeezing…
The quantity of grease “wormed“ out of the bottle was comparable with the secretion of a


25 kg per year, corresponding to 2,85 g per hour.
The hole at the top of the bottle was way too small.

The chain remained dry to avoid a major mess.

At enquiry at the supplier (among professionals I am already called a notorious complainer) why a bottle supposed for oil is filled with grease, and how I could get the grease onto my chain, I received the following technically mature reply:

In your case we recommend to enlarge the hole by cutting off the top a little below.
Should you then still have difficulties with the usage of the product please get in touch with us.

Thereupon two valium, and everything is fine, isn’t it?
Don’t give me that!
