Yes, that's right - it's a parking attendant's job. And it pays better than many of the crappy EFL jobs that you can find on tefl.com these days. In fact, if you have 'experience of enforcement and dealing with difficult people and challenging situations' - as surely every UK Tefler has - you might as well apply for it, as you'll be better off doing that than swallowing the following morsels of misguided Tefl nonsense...
