So's I was walking home from work and overheard an exchange between a man holding a cardboard sign and a man with a freshly parked shiny ride.
"I was just trying to help you out man - your back tire was on the curb." Says the man with the cardboard sign.
"I'm from Ballard - that's how we park there." Says the man with the freshly parked car.

Like it was a declaration - an indulgence of the locale.
Or the guy was trying to be funny to a man begging with a cardboard sign.
