-People who don’t parallel park properly/use the space in the best and most efficient manner (front or back bumper all the way to the NO PARKING sign, please)

Usually, I give swearing up for Lent. The outcome is usually hilarious.
Since my favorite fasnacht bakery is far away in Allentown (er… 20 minutes away), I won’t be getting any fasnachts this year. :****(
