So, I parked in a different spot for this workweek than I usually do. This was not because I had wanted to, but rather because I couldn’t park where I usually do.
Again, this is not really an issue, as I will always find a place to park . . . somewhere. But this just goes to show that life is unpredictable and that I really have to ‘right’ to be anywhere.
I couldn’t park where I usually do because a truck parked behind me, rather close. Again, not an issue as I could, and did, drive out front ways.
Now, it became an issue when I came to park back here again. There wasn’t quite enough room for me to park there without getting too close to that truck behind me.
The nose of my truck was sticking out just a bit into the entryway of one of the businesses that I park near.
Now, it was nowhere near getting close to impeding traffic, as that is a wide entryway and I was just a few inches into it.
Yet, with big trucks coming and going, I didn’t want to risk getting my front taken off. That and I really do try to be considerate when I park.
So, while I could have backed up and effectively blocked the truck behind me in, simply so I could park safely where I usually do, I’m not a jerk; rather I try to not be a jerk.
So, I moved and found another place on the street to park with a patch of grass outside my door.
The upside is that where I am parked now is closer to work and with my long-range Wi-Fi adapter I can still get work’s Wi-Fi. So, that’s nice.
Again, for me it is worth the extra effort and inconvenience to not be a jerk, yet still get done what I need to get done.
This was not the first time that I haven’t been able to park where I wanted due to the actions of others and it won’t be the last time. That’s life.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
