Now there are two people working the entrance to the parking lot. One guy directs traffic and stops traffic to reduce the annual carnage rate when pedestrians have to cross (ourselves included). Once a car passes the dude, he encounters another attendant which hands the driver a parking voucher--incredible!
I always mimic the old Carrefour parking guys (check out my previous post regarding this matter) to my students and they get a kick out of it. It's always fun to pretend to direct the "bad" kids out of class like they're cars pulling into the parking lot--but that hasn't happened yet (don't worry, I would never embarrass or shame my students).
Here's a picture of the old setup:
Here's a video of the new guy...watch the slick hand movements...it's hypnotizing:
