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.


7:00pm
Finally arrive at your destination.

7:02pm
Check to see if there’s a parking garage.

7:03pm
There IS a garage!

7:08pm
You enter, but the entire first floor is reserved.

7:12pm
The entire second floor is handicap spots?

7:16pm
There are only 8 public spots on the top floor and they’re all full.

7:20pm
Somehow it’s $11 for the time you spent looking for a spot.

7:25pm
Every spot on the street is full.

7:30pm
Check the side road. It’s also full.

7:36pm
You find a spot three blocks away.

7:38pm
Unfortunately the sign says no parking Mon-Fri 11-11, Sat, or Sun. Why is it even a spot, then?

7:45pm
There’s another spot five blocks away, but it’s only big enouh for a child’s wagon.

7:46pm
You try it anyway.

7:48pm
Yep. You don’t fit.

7:50pm
You circle around again. Maybe something opened up.

7:53pm
There’s a spot!

7:55pm
You put on your signal and fly up to the spot.

7:56pm
There’s a motorcycle parked there.

7:58pm
You start to cry.

8:00pm
Maybe you just live in your car now? Is this your life?

8:05pm
You give it one more shot and circle the block again.

8:08pm
OMG there’s an actual open spot!

8:10pm
You finally park and get out of the car. You did it!

8:11pm
But you forgot it’s street sweeping night. You’re parked on the wrong side. Enjoy your $73 ticket!

9:00am
You find your ticket, sell your car, and decide to just take Ubers full time.

9:05am
Uber prices are surging 3x the normal price. Life is garbage. You’re in hell.
