Happy Saturday everyone! I tried to post this yesterday when I got home and knocked out about 10PM. I hope you’ve had a spectacular week so far. We had 7AM call times all week and that always makes me happy. Although it does make me extremely tired at times by the end of the week as that theory was proved yet again last night when I fell asleep on the couch, 15 minutes after sitting on it. I know most people hate waking up in the morning but I’m actually a fan of waking up early. Particularly when I’m working because the earlier one starts the earlier they’ll be out. If we start at 7AM then there’s a good chance that we will be out by 7-8PM. I know to the normal world that works 8-9 hours that sounds like insanity and I’m here to tell you as I do so often, IT IS! It’s total insanity but our dumb business just continues to make it the norm. However, today I’m not here to go on about the industry. As I mentioned on Tuesday I’m going to start writing about some other topics. This is not a totally new feature here on the site as I’ve written quite a few “Fuck It Friday” posts but I’m going to be doing it more often. So let’s get into this shall we?
Today I want to talk about the shit parking that some people are doing out there. Yes, it’s gotten so bad lately that I had to write an entire post about this just hoping that some of you nitwits will read it and work on your fucked up parking skills. The reason this upsets me so much is because I made a conscious decision one day to never park on or over the line a few years ago. Since I made that tiny change in my life I have parked and stepped out of my car on multiple times only to notice I was on or over the line and then got back in my car and corrected the problem. Why would I do this? Why do I care so much? Because honestly this is such a simple rule to follow and other than being a complete asshole that just doesn’t care about taking 2 spots and making some stranger curse your existence (I’ve said some crazy shit) as they try to squeeze out their driver side door there is no reason in the world to park like this. If I can correct my bad parking when I do it then so can everyone else. If we all did it then the world would just be that much better. I’m not saying that parking within the lines is going to bring world peace but it is a step forward in just acting like a decent human being. Which I’m sad to say doesn’t seem to be a priority in many people’s lives. People would rather be assholes or idiots. I mean and it’s not surprising we are in a time where assholes and idiots are defending themselves by showing pride in these flaws. We can all be assholes and idiots but the point is not to be.
I will say though that there is definitely some idiots out there that just CAN’T park. I call them idiots because this is a correctable problem as I said before. Practice makes perfect. However the problem is that some people will say shit like, “I’m terrible at parking” every time they park and so they don’t work on it anymore. I think saying shit like that kind of makes your brain give up. You just accept that you don’t know how to park and so give up learning. Which is terrible because that just makes you lazy and it’s only a matter of time before your mind starts giving up on a bunch of other crap. You’ll find yourself saying “I’m terrible at this…I can’t do that…I never learned how to do this…”. Learning is a constant part of life. A person should NEVER stop learning. Alright back to the parking…sorry the Mary took me into a slight ramble there.I remember driving through a parking lot once where one person had parked over the line and at an angle even though it was straight head in parking and all the cars parked next to him continued to park just like him instead of parking the right way. Idiots. It’s a very basic skill folks and it only takes repetition to perfect it.
Now besides the idiots that don’t understand the logistics of parking because they refuse to learn them and the assholes that just don’t care, I do know there’s some people out there…we’ll call them dim wits that do this purposely because they have a fancy car that they don’t want someone to Fuck up their paint job but I’m just going to let you know that all that does is make your car a target for people who are assholes. I don’t do this anymore but in my younger more asshole-ly years I use to park in those extremely close parking spots that people like this would create as a result of their parking and then would fling open my door with no regard for that car. I may have caused many little dings to many nitwits cars out there and at the time it made sense in my asshole thinking. I figured I was teaching this person a lesson. In my insane teenage mind I thought since I dinged this persons car next time they’ll take sometime to park right. I don’t act like this anymore because I’m no longer a child but I just wanted to share that because even though I’m not out there doing this anymore there will always be some kids growing up to be assholes and they may spot your car.
I would also like to point out that prior to the small Jetta I drive now which is much easier to get into spots I drove an Explorer for years and still managed to park between the lines. So I don’t want to hear this bullshit excuse that the your car is too big. However I do understand at times that some parking spots are too tight for their car. There’s certainly a couple of parking lots I’ve been in which one would think they were built exclusively for mini coop but those are far and few in between. I would say I see more SUV type cars than I see smaller vehicles so I know all the parking lots aren’t to blame. I know this sounds like some dumb trivial shit to bitch about but I just need to vent about this and this is my outlet. Plus I thought it would be funny which is always my number one priority on here. Seriously though, I literally lose my shit internally every time I see someone that’s parked on or over the line. All it takes is 30 seconds to get back in that car and correct the problem. If you don’t have 30 seconds to fix a problem then you may have some serious time managing problems that need addressing as well. I’m just trying to get us all on the same page here. Together we can achieve great stuff but when we choose to act like an ass and do stuff like this we achieve nothing.
Thanks for reading another post here at We’re Not Rolling. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I’ll be back on Tuesday with an all NEW post.
