Pet Please #2: Back-to-Back Parking Spaces

Parking is a fairly joyless act. Some people get odd pleasure out of parallel parking–I’m satisfied if I can get my car into a space twice as long as the vehicle.

Universally, though, there is one great pleasure about parking: When you pull into a parking space and discover that the adjacent parking space is empty too, so you can pull through and easy pull out when you’re ready to go. It’s paved convenience.

Possibly even better: Not getting the pull-through when you park, but when you return to your car, you find the adjacent space is empty, so you can unexpectedly pull straight out.
