I've been living in a condo complex in Atlanta for going on six years now. One major problem at this complex is a lack of guest parking--we have a gated lot with enough spaces for each bedroom. One-bedroom condo owners get one gated space, two-bedroom unit owners get two. For the most part, I'm okay with the parking situation, because I'm a messy, misanthropic hermit who generally doesn't have people over to entertain.
In the front of the complex is a small lot marked "Guest Parking" with approximately nine or ten spaces. When the Pink Gator comes over, she usually tries to find a space in that lot, because it's conveniently close to the door of the complex. This morning, however, she returned to her car to find a note with the following message:
Too many times in guest parking - Beyond time allowed
I call the front office to ask if I need to register her car with the security service so that she'll stop getting these messages, and our property manager informs me that several years ago, because of actual residents using the guest parking spaces, our board of directors passed a rule that guest parking is for guests who visit on an infrequent basis.
If the Pink Gator would like to visit more than say, twice a week, then she needs to park elsewhere (the property manager actually told me that she should park in the parking garage of the high-rise down the street).
Apparently, "Guest Parking" is only available to a certain class of guest.
This is why I hate people.
