Park Wherever and However You Want

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

It has become my habit to look out the window every now and then to seek respite from the tediousness of staring at the computer screen. Last week as I am having my ‘break’ something peculiar caught my eye. The usually vacant private parking lot not far from our building was crammed with vehicles. The open air parking lot can hold more than 70 vehicles, but there we just too many cars, some parked haphazardly, that they even occupied one entire lane of the boulevard. This went on for several days.

It was only for half a block, so what’s the big deal, right? Yes, they only made use of one lane of the road for half a block for a few hours, but in those hours I saw how terribly tangled traffic got. It’s like those people can park wherever and however they want without thinking of its effect on others. And because the police outpost is just in front of the parking lot, it makes you wonder how they got away with it. Simple. The property owner has extra special privileges. He might even become the next president of the Philippines.
