I attended the funeral of the mother of a childhood friend today, at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home on Eglinton Avenue, just west of Yonge.
As I pulled in to the driveway, the attendant asked if I could back into my parking space, as it made it much easier to get out afterwards.
As it always does, of course, which is why I always do. But especially I imagine in the tight confines of this small lot.
Safer to enter the space too, because you drive past the spot before you enter it to ensure there's no danger lurking there.
Great to know they are educating their guests on this oh-so-obvious, oh-so-simple, oh-so-without-cost-or-any-other-downside safe driving technique.
The only sad part is that they HAVE to educate people about it. Surely everyone knows by now that this is the only logical way to park?
Unless of course you have a 'pull-through' space as you often have in larger lots; I still see people all the time pull half-way into a pull-through, leaving themselves the need to back out again if the empty space in front of them is filled by the time they get back.
What are they thinking?
I guess it is clear - they AREN'T thinking...
Is it any wonder they keep running into each other?
