I don't even have to pay for parking because nobody makes me. I never seem to get a ticket. I do repeatedly get "warnings" but this never translates into actually requiring anything from me, so why in the hell would I ever feel threatened?
The tricky part is that arriving so late to work means that most of the parking spaces are already occupied. But that doesn't really matter either, given that most people just park on the edges of the rows and in the corners anyway. It's a gravel parking lot - there are no pretty yellow lines or anything.
But then tonight I was walking to my car and explaining all of this to my boss (who was carrying my huge-ass pumpkin). "No I don't pay. Yes, they give me warnings. No they never give me tickets."
And then we saw something on my wind shied from the distance, which I assumed was another warning.
Well. It wasn't.
A napkin? Really?
And I wasn't even blocking anybody! Why are people so uptight?
So, in response, I wrote the following open napkin note to my anonymous office-mate.
