Silver Lining thought: Parking at work
28 March 2007 16:34

A silver-lining thought:

Recently at work, finding a parking space has me further out from the building than usual. Inconvenient, yes (boo-hoo for me), but not a bad thing really. I remember the desparate days of the Internet bust, the parking lots around the building were very sparse. I could almost always park in the row right next to the building. Slowly the parking spots are filling up, and finding a space right next to the building is bceoming rare. Which thing gives me hope that the local tech economy is booming. I also get a few more steps away from my generally sedentary work-lifestyle. :-)

There is usually a bright side to many of life's little inconveniences.

I guess if there is a full parking lot it means a lot of people have jobs.

well, parking next to the building is certainly convinient, but as long as you can find any parking spot - you're fine! :)
