    Well yea, if you only want your company to be thought of as completely heartless assholes.

    I use to park on the other side of high street right across from the drugstore or behind Oldfield’s on High if the Ravari lot was full. Shamrock. They got the sham part right. I’m a big fan of the music genre, though. Kids love sham rock.

    Seems to me like even when the gas station was open for business folks didn’t seem to care about parking there despite the signs threatening towing.

    Really seems like Houndogs or whomever should open up that grass lot for parking just behind the actual lot.

    Sadly, that large grass lot behind Houndogs (where they used to have that sweet-ass music/skateboard party) is now fenced off & under development.

    Well maybe it’s not sad that they’re doing something with that lot, but I will miss the skateboarding event.

    I’ve noticed that Patrick J’s has been changing their signs on football Saturdays to read “Don’t park at gas station – they tow”. Good folks :)

    The one thing I hate about pretty much anyplace off High St. past First is the parking situation. Between the Parking permits and Shamrock it sucks. One good thing about the West Side you can park where ever you want no permit necessary.

    Does anyone see the Irony in customers of “Shamrock” being totally unlucky?

    Thanks for the warning. And I agree, it would be nice if people could just park there. But let’s face it, if someone slips on ice or a car gets broken into or someone’s harassed by a “roustabout” or Hael throws a bunch of nails on the pavement and 10 cars have flat tires, who is going to get a call? The owners of the property. By “allowing” people to park there they take on liability. I haven’t paid attention but if Mister Shifter is right then they’re giving you fair warning. I’m not saying it’s not a “trap”, but if there’s a sign then it’s on you.
    Fortunately there is plenty of parking within reasonable walking distance.

    Well golly gee, how do we have parking lots then if there is liability? Seems there is a missed opportunity to get some easy revenue in that area by the lot owner. $5 a car, 3 nights a week is easy money.
    Signs mean nothing if they are not visible. Just look at the Sloopy’s thread.

    Well golly gee, I think it’s called an insurance policy. Something you wouldn’t buy if people aren’t supposed to park there….genius. It’s easy to say things like this without giving it much thought, but consider things like future plans for the property, how many cars could you park in there, who owns the property? Perhaps the land has a special permit/zoning that allows it to only be used as a gas station due to environmental reasons.
    I assure you I’m not trying to defend them, just trying to put another perspective out there. It’s not always someone just trying to be an a-hole….

    Noticed that there are big piles of dirt on the lot now. Not sure what they’re doing there, maybe digging up the old fuel tanks or something. This is probably why they didn’t want people parking there, which makes sense.

    They have been using this for a staging area for the local cunstruction for over a year now. The tanks have been dug up thus the dirt holes there and I highly doubt that Shamrock owns the property. I fully assume they are the ones that tow from the property though.

    Yeah, that’s my guess too. Sometimes people need to know that the owner isn’t trying to be mean or trick anyone. If there’s a no parking sign there, then don’t park there. As a rule of thumb, if I don’t know if I am allowed to park somewhere, I don’t park there.
