Depends on the Day

Via Very Demotivational

On a bad day, I'd love to have a huge stack of these:



On a good day, it occurs to me that maybe the world would be a better place if we gave out thank-you cards to good parkers, instead.

  1. I don't think being irritated is a good excuse for wounding/humiliating others, even if they deserve it. It only multiplies the bad feelings.

    "Try considering others while you park. The world doesn't just revolve around you and your needs"

    Maybe the person giving the card should read that part again, removing the last three words of the first sentence.

    Bad park-ers are others too :P

    I like the Thank You card idea, though. Maybe not just for parking, but other kind acts. When some really nice driver lets me in when traffic is backed up, I appreciate it. Some people really go out of their way. Wouldn't it be better to celebrate them?

  2. I'm thinking a scrolling text marquee in your back window, so you can flash a smiley face or a warning like "your brake light is out" - helpful things.

    Oh, look:

    1. If the marquee is in your back window, how would you know their brake light is out?

    2. I'm picturing a 4-lane-road scenario where you come up behind them, see the light is out, then pull around & get in front of them to deliver the message.

    3. I figured. What I always wanted was a sign that either said "I Brake for Tailgaters" or "BACK OFF."

      People who tailgate are taking far too much for granted regarding my driving ability and/or state of mind.

  5. I reward people every single day for good parking. As is evidenced by the fact that they are not bleeding.

  7. I think smiling and waving works for most things. :)

  8. I was wrong.

    Smiling and waving works for *me*. For you, you have to, like, pick me up and take me to dinner. :P

    I can wait until someone wants to sweep me off of my feet.
