“Dear Sir or Madam,
Below her signature line was a picture of a black BMW Wagon with the license plate blurred out, clearly the offending car parked in a spot it should not in.
Dear Sir or Madam,

And Marta must have gotten a new job, or moved on to something else because the notifications from the building were now coming from someone named Beata, and still mostly about people parking in the wrong parking spots. Maybe Marta had gotten fired because people were still parking in the wrong spots. Maybe she quit because her reminders went unheeded. Maybe the person who should have been getting these instead of me really was the one parking in the wrong spots. Still, I did not reply. I was afraid to stop getting the emails, but now I really wanted to find out who they were supposed to go to. Was there another Mike Smolarek someone in Poland? I’ve only found three others, all of whom are high school teachers and coaches in Wisconsin and Michigan (although one now hosts a radio show since his retirement). Was one of them traipsing around Poland right now?
I hope continue to get these emails about the infractions of the people living at Promenady Wroclaw. People on the other side of world will continue to park cars in spots where they don’t belong and be loud too late at night or too early in the morning. Google will still translate Polish to English poorly. And I’ll still dream the dream that every kid dreams: that I own a condo in Poland.
