Yesterday while parking before work, I saw something. I can't decide if it's pure comedy or really depressing. On the lowest level of the lot, there was only one space left. It was very narrow. A man decided he wanted that spot, but his car wouldn't fit and still give him enough room to get out of the car.
So he turned the car off, put it in neutral, and was in the process of pushing it into the spot when I drove by.
Mind you, there were open spots a couple of levels up in the garage. How was he going to get out?
I think it's a metaphor for American energy policy.
