Grumpy / Fee-dodgers parking at hospice

Reader JOHN from Aranda is beyond grumpy, he’s livid at insensitive parking at the hospice.

HERE’S some news to get your blood very close to boiling point; I have it on good authority that some of our public servants who work in the Parliamentary Triangle are parking at Clare Holland House as opposed to paying their government-subsidised parking fees!

Do these “low-lifes” not have any shame at all?

What an act of absolute and total disregard for our fellow human beings’ compassion!

Those of us who have had immediate dealings will agree that Clare Holland House is a very special place and should be treated with the utmost of respect.

As if it is not traumatic enough and emotionally draining for those people who find themselves spending a large amount of their time at the hospice, to then have the extra unnecessary stress of trying to park their vehicle because of some thoughtless person is just unforgiveable!

This parking area is reserved for patients, visitors and staff of the hospice. For heaven’s sake people, show some empathy and respect for those within your community who frequent this facility. Your disregard is not only a disgrace but totally un-Australian!
