Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 3, 2003 9:57 PM This is a far more trivial topic but one that's been bothering me for a while - I just need to vent a little here. Now, I realize that I don't have an inalienable right to a parking space in front of my door. Nevertheless, would it be too much to ask of the residents of Ardmore Road to use their driveways for their intended purpose? Why is it that I can't seem to find parking on the street, but fully 50% of the driveways I see are empty? Isn't it more convenient to park in one's driveway than on the street? Do these people get their exercise by carrying their groceries that extra distance? Maybe I'm the only one who notices this, since I'm the one coming home at 10 or 11 pm, being forced to park at the top of the hill, and collecting spiderwebs on my face as I walk down the steps. (It's the spiderwebs I mind far more than the walk.)

Or maybe many of these houses have the same vehicle/licensed driver ratio as this one does. Anyone care to guess what that is? Do I hear .75? 1? Try 1.5. That's right, four licensed drivers and six vehicles. Ok, I guess one is a "classic" or something and doesn't get used, but it's taking up garage space so I'm counting it. That puts at least one Volvo out in the street. But what really gets me is when I see two Volvo's out in the street. What, exactly, is the point? In case one of the kids wants to take Volvo #3 out for a spin? Actually, the more I think about that concept the scarier it is.

Just one more reason to be browsing the listings. Tags:
