this morning a Rutland plated hackney pulled up at the back of the rank. The driver jumps out and asks me to look after his car while he nips into town :roll:

I said well if the traffic warden comes along he'll give you a ticket

"but how will he know it's not a local cab" came the reply

I told him the traffic wardens are quite thorough which is true as they always check for disabled badges or anything else and take 6 photos of the car once the ticket is issued

at this point he decided I was being awkward and vindictive but I had a job to go to and left the rank as I pulled away he was asking another driver to "look after his car"

the question is was I being vindictive by refusing to look after a vehicle plated for a neighbouring L.A. parking on our rank and help him abuse the rank ?

Not at all. I wouldn't even "look after" one of our own cars if the driver was going to leave it un-attended on a rank.

No, and the fella has got some f***ing front just for asking.

Should have said 0K then let his 4 tyres down,he would sharp learn you cannot park or stop on a RANK other than what your own licensing authority has laid down.
