Food in a European Capital

Some time ago, I drove to Piraeus (the port area of Athens) for an errand. I was lucky enough to find a proper parking space outside a super-market and was marveling, upon returning to my car, how a bureaucratic task had just finished quickly and painlessly. As I was starting the car off, I noticed a rather unusual sight in front of me.

Even if they communicate in the same language, meanings and interpretations of the same things can vary significantly. This process can be very frustrating.
