I've just been skating on the top floor of the carpark where I often go to skate.
When I was coming out of the carpark, this guy who was driving out leaned out his car window and yelled, 'You do realise the carpark closes at midnight.'
I thought that was a funny thing to presume, and I answered, 'I haven't got a car parked here.'
He said, 'Well what are you doing in the carpark if you don't have a car parked here?'
I said, 'I've been skating.'
He said, 'Well you shouldn't be skating here, it's not safe and you won't be insured if you have an accident here.'
I said, I've been skating here for about a year and haven't had any problems. Are you from the church?' because it's the Scots Church carpark.
He said, 'I'm not from the church, I'm from Wilson's Parking.'
I was pretty annoyed, because I have been skating there often since I got back from Sydney last year, and the security guards have never said anything about it. Anyway, I guess I'll have to find somewhere else to go skating again.

Just wondering if you'd be insured anywhere that you skated? I dunno.

Yeah, I don't have any sort of insurance anyway. I'm guessing they'd be worried about me trying to sue them.

Jonny said...

Or, you could do what I'd do in your situation. Keep skating there.

Christop said...

Yeah, I probably will. I haven't been skating since then, because I've been too busy (which is a bad reason, because it's normally the only recreational exercise I get).

For crying out loud, is the whole world going to stop on the WORRY that something bad is going to happen? That kind of thinking is just turning this place into one dead boring joint to live in. Grrrr.

I'd keep skating there too (if I skated)
