Folks take note: this is how you complain about DC. A funny post at 5 am on a Saturday lmao

Kingman Island, how I’ve wanted to love you for so long, and how you’ve always made me feel so so so disgusted.

The final straw was getting into a f-bomb yelling match with the guy with three giant off leash bullmastiffs that knocked over my kids.

I’ll never return.

It's an annoying spot because folks will park right on the grass there to fish, literally ignoring the fact they're next to the largest surface lot in the city.

It drives me up the wall. Especially because MPD does patrols and bike training there regularly. Do they not care? Does anyone care?

I regularly see normal, non-work cars on Kingman that too drives crazy too.

You're probably seeing the cars of the people who work on the island. The rangers and island manager all work for Living Classrooms. They keep the gate on Benning Road locked, so it's unlikely that anyone else can drive onto the island.

That's what I initially thought, but just this week I saw a guy washing his car after hanging out 400 meters in and a photo shoot by someone from Costar (Tesla with their livery) at the same time.

There definitely are some official users but there are people slipping on.

Well, seems like two of you do. Nobody else gives a shit about parking on the grass on what's pretty damn far from a pristine environment.

Lighten up, Francis. People going fishing, deal.

I don't mind the fishing, but parking your car in the middle of a park? Have some fucking respect and walk the literal thirty feet.

It's a glorified parking lot on an abandoned sports stadium. You would have been appalled how people parked in lot 8 during DC United, Nationals or Redskins games

Ooooooo. Chrysler Town and Country edition. I swear this city is so so fancy.

I don’t know. Looks a lot more comfortable than most park benches I see around here. Now if it has one of those cup holders in the middle chef’s kiss
