Still enjoying the hospitality of our northern neighbors, my colleague and I had to say "Eh?" when we pulled into an office tower parking garage and saw something unusual: Parking stalls that were two car lengths long, with this sign posted on every other pillar:
Edited to add: The second car boxes in the first car. When the first car wants to leave, the "security officer" will move the second car to let the first car out. I've seen this occasionally at a concert or something, but never in a regular parking lot. Being paranoid Americans and having observed the alleged security officer in action (one per parking level), we both had the same thought -- "We are not leaving the keys in this rental car" -- and we drove around until we found an empty first spot. Is this a Canadian thing, an out-of-space-city thing, or the wave of the future? Don't know, so we'll go for the default option: Damn Canadians.
(P.S. The pic is after the parking garage was closed.)
