Parking in the South


I love going to the Publix (that’s one of our grocery store chains for you non-Southerners). I do not really love grocery shopping  but everyone is always nice at the Publix and they walk you to whatever you are trying to find. Which, for me, is at least twice a trip that I need a personal escort to some elusive ingredient listed on my E-mealz shopping list and menu. If you don’t know what E-mealz is, you should check it out – lifesaver. I like to cook but David would be cooking a lot more if I did not have E-mealz.

Anyway, I am straying from my topic of parking. Like I said, I love Publix but a mid-week stop last week at this grocery mecca was even more enjoyable due to a cleverly parked silver sedan. Now, I had rolled into the parking lot and thought I spied a spot right up front. Yes! . . . . . Ah wait, no. Who is the lame-O that took up two parking spots with his truck that does not look fancy enough to require two spots? Or is he just trying to ensure he can make a quick getaway and pull through instead of having to place his truck in reverse? Maybe I should just park behind him! Grrr! Fine, I will circle around. Put on the blinker. Stop. Wait for the pedestrian. Turn and turn again up the next row. Now what is this? Why is this car sticking out so far? Oh, wait . . . ha, ha, ha.

Some enterprising person had taken my idea and ran, or in this case, parked with it.

Another view just so you get the full picture of what made my trip to the Publix all that more enjoyable! Thank you silver sedan owner.
