All Of A Sudden
I knew it was too good to last. I’ve gone from having no neighbors to apparently having 1,000 of them. I’m not sure how they’re fitting all of those people in the apartments next to mine, but I know exactly how those people are getting from wherever they go during the day to back here: in one of the 8,000 cars parked in front of my apartment.
Seriously, if I get back later than, oh, say, 7 p.m.? No place to park at all. Up until last week I could choose any of about ten spaces, and now? Nothing. I’m parking in front of apartments I didn’t even know were apartments.
Funny thing is, this is what it’s taken for me to start seriously thinking about buying a house. A lack of parking. That’s what it took. Even in my frustrations there’s a quirk factor that can barely be believed.
