'No waiting at any time'

I didn't take any closer photographs because the driver popped out of a house and began screaming obscenities and threats of violence at me. As I retreated from the scene I declined to say a word, which seemed to enrage him all the more. It's a trick I've learned from watching parking attendants, maestros of the art of quiet detachment in the face of the quivering, bellicose, lawless yob.
