When Nima Hosseini Razi drove his Ford Mondeo to London for the day, he was expecting nothing more dramatic than an overpriced afternoon tea.
Unfortunately, Mr. Razi's car chose the wrong moment to malfunction, forcing him to abandon the vehicle in a sensitive location near Parliament Square.
Underestimating the enthusiasm of the London traffic wardens, Mr. Razi left a pleading note on his windshield, asking them not to give him a ticket.
Unsurprisingly, the wardens weren't in a good mood that day. Instead of giving Mr. Razi a pass (not that he deserved one; the moron had inexplicably abandoned his vehicle and gone for a wander around Buckingham Palace), they called in the anti-terror brigade.
London's finest, who have probably been chomping at the bit for this exact scenario to occur since 9/11, then decided it would be prudent to evacuate Parliament Square and perform a controlled explosion on the vehicle.
Just to be on the safe side, the car was then issued a parking ticket and towed away.
Welcome to London, bitches.
