From the mouth of babes: the strong sense of entitlement

standard December 1, 2008 2 responses

“Trust in the parking karma.” I admonished M as he started to fret about the parking situation on Black Friday. “When have I ever lead you wrong?”

I’m a firm believer in trusting the parking gods to guide you to a parking spot. My reward for being a believer is that I rarely have to circle long to get a spot and I often get rock star parking. M’s punishment for not being a believer is that he gets to circle lots and lots. When he’s with me I often have to squelch his skepticism.

On Friday we were in the middle of our routine argument discussion when C piped in from the back with an extremely well timed, if somewhat surprising interjection.
“We need Valet!”

I have a feeling I’m going to have trouble explaining the fine art of parallel parking to that one*.

* Minor reference to the movie Clueless, for those not quite as dorky as me who haven’t seen it a hundred million times.

  • I too just trust in the parking Gods and usually I’m walking into the store when the person frantically stalking people asking if they’re leaving and zooming around the lot since before I arrived, keeps going around in circles.

    The big question is: Where did C find out about valets? 😉

  • @David That is indeed the question! We’re not quite sure about that!
