I’ve been out there….this morning I decided that we needed Krispy Kremes for breakfast and went up to get some. Yeah, sure there is a Fuckin’ Gonuts within walking distance and the only Krispy Kremes is up on Cottman Ave….but sometimes you just need a hot one 😉
Anyway, the gutters are like rivers and the snow is actually melting….or just plain washing away. When I got home I came up with a snow parking mantra: When it starts to melt, all dibs are off.
I’ve been good. There have been times when I got home from work and there were spaces open with no chairs or garbage cans in them…..but I woulda been pissed if someone jumped in mine so I just went back to my little igloo every day.
Today, there are no marked spaces (you know, with snow still there) save for the ones like mine that had a 4 foot wall of snow around them to being with. But people still have shit holding their spaces.
I’ll remember that in June.
Anyway, there was a wide open spot with nothing in it and 6 other completely empty spots so screw it all.
Granted, my car will be floating away shortly…….but at least I can say I got a damn spot on the street for the first time in a week.
So if I’m bitching about my window being broken or tires being slashed tomorrow, you know why.
