Bad Parking 5

car wrongly parked in Russia 1

 

This parking went badly! The truck driver probably didn’t notice that some small vehicle was already parked there. Even when he heard the crunching sound of the folding metal under his right wheel, he probably thought “Oh man, I just hit the curb a bit, not a big thing at all”. Well, it wasn’t a curb.

And it wasn’t just toys that were the same for almost everyone. Going from home to home you could see the same furniture, same cloths and same home appliances and all those homes were in the same multi-stored buildings. It was the time of total unification, so if anybody is from that times he would for sure mark most of those toys as “Man, I had them too!”
