A perfect ‘shooting’ Mike, and yes folks he is as short as he looks in the photograph!
As Mike said he is very well known in the local area and not for his wit and friendly conversation either 😀 He has an amazing ability to appear in quite different locations seemingly within seconds, there is no escape i’m afraid!
Probably one of the most pointless jobs in western Christendom. To do it with zeal is obviously the manifestation of some frustrated power junkie. He looks like the end result of putting ON THE BUSES’ Blakey in a traffic warden’s uniform.
A shorter meaner Blakey, yes. The blogger Brianna says he reminds her of that army sergeant-like screw forever on the back of Fletcher in the TV series Porridge.
Ah, the dreaded Mr McKay. Imagine HIM as a traffic warden.
C E O – ‘Civil Enforcement Officer’
Yes he IS the type. Officious. Explain how this pic fits? I like a VW.
This chappie is infamous within the local motoring fraternity, as Brianna will confirm. Keen as mustard…to uphold the letter of the parking law. Luckily I had my meter ticket paid and displayed ( his eagle eyes are checking ). I saw him coming ’round and waited my chance to shoot him on sight. 🙂
A veritable bastion of unbending authority within his grubby little zone of jurisdiction.
Well done him.
I trust you didn’t.
People like this CEO (a terribly ironic set of initials for someone who will NEVER be a Chief Executive Officer) are often acutely conscious of just how small they are. The only thing they can be sure of is their own inadequacy. Be kind to him – but don’t give him an opportunity to ticket you.
Sleep well. Night night.
Of course I should have added: “and be kind to all the other ‘hims’ around the place. There are lots”.
Could ‘him 1’ see the photographer preparing to shoot him?
So, now a quick note to a couple of bloggers, then a pot of tea.
