I HATE holiday shopping for so many reasons: the crowds, the chaos, the attitudes and especially the parking. I tend to be what I call a “strategic” shopper. I do all of the shopping in my head, and then I to a strategic strike right to that shop, purchase the item, and then get out. If I do it right, my shopping can take a mater of minutes to be completed.
There is only one problem though, something that I have absolutely no control over – the parking lot and the drivers that rule it.
The drivers are the ones who ruin my strategic, surgical gift extraction and who, at the end of the day, put me in an even fouler mood than when I knew that I had to go shopping. (Yeah, basically, shopping puts me in a foul mood).
But those drivers must have crept up from the darkest of holes or the slimiest of bogs and gotten behind the wheel to torment us all. During the year regularly, I call them the Sunday Drivers, the one that only get behind the wheel on Sundays and basically have no clue as to anything related to the road, etiquette or even compassion.
Assuming that you actually make it alive to the shopping mall, there is now a NEW type of person that you have to deal with as you look for something extremely precious namely – a parking space.
We all know these types as they exist wherever you go. It is just that they seem to come out like cockroaches during the holidays and they are even more extreme that normal.
I present you with 7 Parking Lot Types that you will find walking in a crowded parking lot when you are looking for a space.
I sure hope that you are a Savior when you are freeing up your parking space for someone else. Karma points go a long way, especially during the holidays.
