Parking cop lifts taxi in promotional stunt
It’s all about the gains.
A New York parking enforcement officer turned heads this week as she lifted a taxi overhead following a dispute with its driver.
The driver, unwilling to move his vehicle from the “no standing” zone, received more than a ticket for his violation. Reacting to his refusal to move the vehicle, Offcier Jenni decided to move it for him.
Caught on camera, bystanders stood in awe at Jenni’s super strength. It isn’t everyday you see someone lift a car, let alone an unassuming parking enforcement officer.
Although this seems like a viral prank put together by an auto sales startup, the Daily Dot uncovered documents that revealed that there may be some truth in the stunt.
As the documents state: The basic requirement for any parking enforcement officer is extraordinary strength.
During the training process, prospective officers are required to intake at least 150 grams of protein a day, while spending at least three hours in the weight room. Officers have to make significant gains during the probationary period to meet, or surpass, certain benchmarks.
The Global Parking Control and Enforcement Manual code of conduct stipulates:
Employees shall perform assigned duties while swole, yoked, or shredded.
Employees shall not consume more than 25 daily grams of carbohydrates.
Employees shall report for duty ready and able to press no less than one vehicle over their head.
No weaklings, pipsqueaks, dorks, or nerds shall wear the badge of the Parking Enforcement League.
If you’re looking for a job and the prospect of parking enforcement sounds good to you, get ready for a life of 4am training sessions, massive protein intake, and, most importantly, significant #gains.
