Yesterday afternoon I was driving with my 18 month old son over to Beacon Hill from our home in Charlestown to pick up my two older children from school. As I was pulling on to Pickney Street at 3:10 pm, I noticed a truck leaving a designated school pick-up parking spot. As the truck was leaving, I put my blinker on to indicate that I was planning to park. I then pulled up in order to back into the spot, looked in my rear view mirror and noticed a car pulling into the spot head first. I was shocked. I rolled my window down and said to the driver that this was a designated school pick-up spot from 3-6 pm. She yelled out of her window that she had commercial plates and that she had every right to jump in and steal the spot. It turns out, as the sign on her car indicated, that she is the owner of the Bunker Hill Bed and Breakfast. In fact, she is practically my neighbor. I was so disappointed. One would hope that a person who is welcoming strangers into her home would treat her own neighbors with courtesy and respect.
