Things done in the car today that seem very typical/indicative of the car culture here in Atlanta (and elsewhere).
- Got the emission tested
- Saw/heard my first proximity alarm
- Nearly got clipped while parking
- Nearly got clipped while parallel parking
Jenn’s birthday is tomorrow so we need the emission test for her tag renewal. 5 minute process in Midtown during lunch.
I’d heard of these but never experienced one for myself.
In our parking deck were two Red Porsches – a boxter and something more classic; I’m no car guy – are parked next to us. As we approached on our way to the emission test the one Porsche started ticking like a timebomb on 24 and ominously told me to “stand back”.
Maybe it’s my personality, but I really wanted to stand next to it long enough for the KITT voice to start yelling at me and the alarm to go off. YMMV.
In the parking lot of our kids’ daycare no less. People, SHEESH!
By Rocky Mountain Pizza. Jenn is a pro though and parallel with panache.
Hope everyone has a happy commute!
