Carolyn shares parking meter woe and other thoughts....

I attended a meeting the other day and parked my car on the main street in town, where I do not usually park. I exited my car with my purse, my backpack, my quarters, and my keys in hand, and approached the parking meter
It was puzzling. There was a single meter at each end of the car. Which one goes with this parking place? I counted back and determined, to the best of my ability, which meter should receive my quarters.
Only then did I realize that the meter was for two hours.
Oh, well, I guess I’ll have to come back in the midst of the meeting to put more quarters in.
