Riding in Cars with Boys (LAFF #1)

So we meet again! Thanks for coming back. Today in honor of Friday, I thought I’d shake things up a bit. From today forward, every Friday I’ll post a humorous anecdote from my life, or a video I found or the like. It’ll be called, Lulabelle’s Anxiety Free Friday or LAFF (get it?? heehee!! 😉 ) . Oh and before I forget, PLEASE feel free to share any of my blog posts with anyone you think would benefit. So without further ado, let’s get this first LAFF started.

**Disclaimer: The following story contains broad generalizations that may or may not be based on real life. (cue Law and Order SVU sound effect)**

By the time you get to be my age you are very well aware there is a vast difference between how men and women approach certain tasks. This is particularly true in how they go about finding a parking spot. Case in point:

Two couples drive out-of-state together to attend a music festival. They arrive in said state and attempt to park somewhere in a multi-story parking garage.  Here is where the difference comes in. Scenario 1: Woman in the driver’s seat. She drives into parking garage, circles around, finds the first parking spot she sees that’ll fit her car, drives in and parks. Pretty simple maneuver. Scenario 2: Man in the driver’s seat. He drives into the parking garage and circles around to the first available spot that’ll fit his car. The big difference is he keeps going.  He’ll drive around in circles as the women in the back seat keep saying, “Hey, there’s a spot….ok never mind….Hey, there’s a spot…..ok never mind….” Finally, after vertigo begins to set in, and she’s regretting the huge breakfast she ate because she fear’s she’s about to see it in reverse–and why DO they call it a Grand Slam??–, the driver finally parks the car and stops…..in the first parking spot he originally came to. 😀

I hope this made you smile. Always remember you are not alone. I’ll see you again here first thing Monday.
