Not referring to the car smart...more as in Smart ar!e for being so brilliant to find a parking space or Smart as in not knowing that it was not one but still parking there.

PS: a few minutes later Granny arrived with her wheelchair and was swearing as she had problems getting to her car. Can understand her frustration!

Is that at Einkaufszentrum Rosenberg, Winterthur ? Their parking spaces are huge !! Two cars easily fit into one. I think this is something they do to get around limitations for parking spaces.
