Here's another sign which requires some careful consideration. If I go to Wimborne Market early on a Friday, I often call in at the nearby Waitrose for a few small bits and pieces - plus my free Waitrose weekend magazine and cup of coffee. The car park is one of the council ones - but money is refunded if you buy £10 worth of goods in store.Flour and golden syrup were on offer, so I stocked up for Tuesday's Pancake Party.Here is the sign
The part which caught my attention was the line below the scale of charges. It is a somewhat ambiguous sentence.
What does it mean?
[a]the basement car park is locked 30 minutes before the store closes and before the store opens
[b]the basement car park is locked 30 minutes before the store closes and 30 minutes before the store opens
[if a or b is true, then when is the car park ever unlocked??]
[c] the basement car park is LOCKED 30 minutes after the store closes and unlocked 30 minutes before the store opens
[d]the basement car park is locked 30 minutes after the store closes and unlocked before the store opens
Personally, I only ever park on the top floor, to avoid any risk of lockdown
