First day at the latest Current Paying Gig

A day which started on a weird note indeed. Parking for this Current Paying Gig is a public garage, which was (for whatever reason) close to full. I had to drive up all the way to the top level, with another vehicle following close behind. I finally found a spot and pulled in; whereupon the driver of the vehicle behind me stopped and walked up to my car. Said driver flashes a badge at me and says, "Sir, could you park further up the ramp? I need this spot for surveillance."

Not a problem - there was plenty of parking further up the ramp - but definitely a weird start to the day.
