We do not have assigned parking spaces at work (we and others in the building park anywhere on the second floor of the garage). I started about 1 1/2 years ago. Its pretty clear that everyone worked out their preferred spaces and others apparently respected that. When I arrived I chose a space that was always free and not all that close but which makes sense for easy out purposes. Everything was fine until about 2 weeks ago when the space is now ALWAYS taken before I arrive. That was NEVER the case before. Now, always. What do you think about that? Are people just not very nice and was I a fool to not just grab a golden spot myself from someone else 1 1/2 years ago and say, HA HA, they aren’t assigned? THat is not my style, but it sure seems to me that nice guys certainly do finish last around here. If we take this as a message from the Cosmos or Karma, what do you think I am supposed to learn from this. I do not want to feel like a victim. Should I treat this as a sign that change eventually is to be expected, and now find another space to make my own? Or is there a bigger message here? I did get pissed last week when I realized that I was dealing with 5 people who just didnt give a hoot about the fact that I would be inconvenienced if they did not work with me to finish a project. One, ignored my calls and called the next day 1 hour before the deadline so that it was impossible to finish. Another, who was supposed to do the task just didnt and then I had to take it at the last minute — he went on vacation that day so I had to cover the inconvenience…. the client “forgot” to call with authority to be flexible until 730 pm that night after it was too late to do anything etc.
What do you think? Is the parking space thing connected? I have no other job prospects at the moment and not enough savings to just walk….
People are taking my parking space at work — what is the universe trying to tell me?
