If you think driving in Los Angeles is a nightmare, just wait until you finally get through all that traffic, arrive at your destination, and try to find a spot to park. It’s so incredibly frustrating you’ll regret the day you got your learner’s permit. You’ll cancel plans based on the venue’s parking situation. Here’s the timeline of what it’s like at any given time, when you’re trying to park your car in Los Angeles.
Finally arrive at your destination.
Check to see if there’s a parking garage.
There IS a garage!
You enter, but the entire first floor is reserved.
The entire second floor is handicap spots?
There are only 8 public spots on the top floor and they’re all full.
Somehow it’s $11 for the time you spent looking for a spot.
Every spot on the street is full.
Check the side road. It’s also full.
You find a spot three blocks away.
Unfortunately the sign says no parking Mon-Fri 11-11, Sat, or Sun. Why is it even a spot, then?
There’s another spot five blocks away, but it’s only big enouh for a child’s wagon.
You try it anyway.
Yep. You don’t fit.
You circle around again. Maybe something opened up.
There’s a spot!
You put on your signal and fly up to the spot.
There’s a motorcycle parked there.
You start to cry.
Maybe you just live in your car now? Is this your life?
You give it one more shot and circle the block again.
OMG there’s an actual open spot!
You finally park and get out of the car. You did it!
But you forgot it’s street sweeping night. You’re parked on the wrong side. Enjoy your $73 ticket!
You find your ticket, sell your car, and decide to just take Ubers full time.
Uber prices are surging 3x the normal price. Life is garbage. You’re in hell.
