L.A. By The Slice: Five Stages of Parking Spot Grief

 

Denial


“I’ve parked on this side street before! There’s always a spot.”

 

 

 

Anger


#$*&! Why is the only spot a 15-minute zone?”

 

 

 

Bargaining


“If I find a spot on the next block, I promise to walk to everything within a one-mile radius of my house, plus join a carpool and stop making fun of Smart cars.”

 

 

 

 

Depression

“I’m 30 minutes late, I wore my most stylish-painful shoes, and I’m six blocks away. There is nothing.”

 

 

 

 

Acceptance

“Valet.”
