Lost your car?

25 07 2007

Ever lost your car in one of those multi-level carparks? Some carpark owners try to do the right thing and use animals etc. to ‘label’ the levels; others just use really big numbers and/or colour-coding. Despite that, people still can’t remember that they left their car on the ‘level kangaroo green 3’. (Aside: There was a memorable Seinfeld episode about this…)

Well, the solution is here! Craig over at Out of the Box blogged today about using the camera in his cell phone to take a picture of the sign of the level he’d parked on. So simple. So brilliant.

Of course—in true Craig style—a parking inspector/security person quizzed him about him taking photos in the carpark! At least he *saw* an official in the carpark where he parked—I don’t think I’ve ever seen one, except for those at the exit who used to take your money in the days before everything became fully automated.

Awww shucks thanks Rhonda! 🙂
Does this mean I can actually state I had a moment of ingenuity?
Thanks for the linkback.

In all the time I’ve been here it’s the first time I’ve seen car park security, and I’ve taken photos of the parking at the airport on numerous occasions, AND that’s the one place I’d expect to see Security.
