The students. They are back. But is isn't so much them. It is their cars. In just a few days the automobile population of this town increases by about 10,000 (I'm guessing). Parking on campus is a joke. They pretty much park wherever they want the first few days. Not a spot? Not a problem. They just make one up.

We are supposed to park by color. Your permit is blue? You park in the blue lot. But how do I know it is a blue lot? See that teensy-tiny little 6X10 sign there? That's how you know. If I were running the place, I would paint the concrete parking thingies the color of the lot. Blue lot? Blue concrete thingies. Silver lot? Silver concrete thingies.

And don't even get me started on having to pay for a permit so I can park where I work.

I have to go to another building now for a presentation. A co-worker is driving me over and dropping me off 'cause there is no way I could park anywhere near the building. I hope she remembers to pick me up! I better take by umbrella...

  1. I do agree that we've officially entered "Parking Purgatory." It will literally be Hell for the next few weeks.

    But on the bright side, I did remember to come pick you up today!!
