Parking Lot Lessons

By Cylee Drake

School, “the road to success,” but this road to success leads to a very pesky parking lot. If you are not driving, be thankful. The parking lot can be the place for hang outs and engine competitions, but it also brings some difficulties. When parking, you may wonder if you parked badly or if you are straight in the spot, but chances are, it is not going to matter because every person to park after you will probably park just as bad. There are, however, some tips and tricks to the parking lot.

Tip #1: Leave your house 10 minutes earlier than normal. By doing this you ensure that you will have plenty of time to find a parking spot and possible get inside before the bell rings.

Tip #2: Always bring rain boots, a winter coat, an umbrella, sunscreen, and a pair of shorts because with Missouri weather, you never if you are going to wake up to snow and then go home to 80 degree weather.

Tip #3: Wash your car regularly. If you do not, there is a very high chance someone is going to draw something on it that you definitely do not want to be seen on your car.

Tip #4: Do not do donuts in the parking lot. Seriously. Do not do it no matter how tempting it is.

Tip #5: Make sure you look up from your phone when walking out. If you do not, you may be hit by a backing out. Just saying.

Tip #6: Don’t forget to turn your lights off before walking inside. No one wants a dead battery when school is out.

Tip #7: Finally, do not challenge senior parking. Do not park in senior parking unless you are a senior. If you do, you will never hear the end of it. Trust me.

Most of these are pretty self explanatory and common sense, but if I have learned anything in my past few years parking in the student parking lot, it is that you can only trust your own driving and that’s only sometimes. We all have our flaws. We are not perfect. As the great Michael Scott said:
