If I were the farmer, I would
have the driver roll the windows down and pick the car up with the forklift tines

Why open the windows? I'm sure the at the forklift tines wouldn't find the windows a problem.

Where do you park your plane when the airport is overcrowded?

I assumed that was virus related - it's actually almost a year old, and storage for the problem-ridden Boeing 737 MAX

This is a mixture of crap cycle facilities and people who park like fuds.
The lane is all over 2m long (although it leads to a shared use footway) but is often used as a teeny parking bay.
linky

Remember this one, from a couple of years back?  I went past it yesterday, on the way to and from the optician.  Here's what was parked there on the way there:

Then this was there on the way back:


It looks like the bollard in the original link has been replaced with one that doesn't have a magic cycle path sign on it, which makes it just fine to park there. Obvs.

(How can people think that represents a parking bay? Car shaped, yes, but with Give Way lines each end. Twats.)

That's an extraordinarily special piece of cycling infrastructure.

It is quite magical.  I shall ask my chum who works for the relevant local authority if he knows anything about it.

High Street North, Newham, London.  Many parking bays suspended to widen pavements.  No problem.

On the opposite side of the road to my shop is a pay and display car park The pay and display function is suspended making parking free.

Today a lazy toad parked on the grass verge between the pavement and car park fence whilst he popped into the shop.

Special people some of these drivers.

I know this was due to the weather, not the drivers, but parking where there is a flood warning sign is asking for trouble.

I thought that was a bad photoshop at first. The angle that the picture was taken excludes all shadows of the car from the picture, so it looks like a poor cut and paste job.

Busy residential area, plus quite a few B&B's on the RHS of that road so it's always busy with cars. Admittedly if I lived there and saw there was a flood warning I'd move my car, but I never cease to be surprised by the laziness of most people who drive everywhere.

Depending on where you live, you can get used to flood warnings being issued and not amounting to more than an inch or two. In which case, unless there's an obvious flood risk right next door like a river, you might expect no different.

It’s not really parking as such, but:

It was flooded as badly there almost exactly a year ago.

I was thinking of visitors – "quite a few B&Bs". If you actually live there then obviously you should be familiar with the flood patterns.

I know it’s shallow, but that’s quite satisfying.

Some 35 years ago at the Oxford Cambridge boat race someone had parked on the slipway at Putney and the tide was coming in. A fireman went to smash the side window, but in front of a large audience he slipped and embedded his fire axe in the door panel.

I think that nearly every time I cycle along the Putney riverside at high tide (got my feet wet last time) here's a car parked at the edge and half underwater. It's always a fat, shiny wanktank.

It could be the same guy, I suppose, having discovered an innovative automated car-washing solution.
