New York City Parking Spots...Always There When You Need Them...Or Are They? | Eastern North Carolina Now

    If you live in New York City and you want to always have a parking spot available to you, you need to become a cop on a TV Cop Show. In every episode when the cops arrive at the scene of the crime, there is a Pull Straight in Parking Spot waiting for them.

    Although this is unrealistic, I'm glad they do find parking easy because otherwise we would have a whole bunch of very boring Cop Shows as we watched our heroes drive around the bl•ock over and over before they can spring into action.

    These shows are not called Reality Shows because the truth is almost all parking spaces in NYC are parked in. They are so precious that once a spot is found many people never move their cars again. That's why the subway was invented. It's NYC's version of Park 'n Ride.

    Since so few spots are available, people are forced to Double Park. To keep from getting a ticket for double parking, New Yorker's hire full time Car Movers to come live with them. When they do go out and about, the Car Mover sits in the double parked cars and, when the meter maid approaches, they move the cars around and around the block until the meter maid goes to get a donut.

    Because they now have to provide Health Insurance to their Car Movers, many New Yorker's are getting inventive. They have started disguising their double-parked cars as trees or bushes so the meter maids will not see them.

    Yea, I know I got carried away with this one but is it any sillier than TV Cop Show Cops always pulling straight in?

    Would I kid u?
