Fun Monday - # 28 - Things That Make You Laugh !


Sayre from Sayre Smiles is still in the groove from last week's FUN Fun Monday and wants us to have some more FUN!! -


Her assignment to all of us is:


Every day as I go to work, I see things around me that make me laugh. Usually these are in the forms of signs. So take your camera with you as you go about your business and take a picture of the things that make you laugh along the way (but it doesn't necessarily HAVE to be a sign).

This isn't a sign ... but it makes me laugh each and every time I see it !!

I live in a townhouse community and each of us have 2 parking spaces reserved for us to use. My next door neighbor (across the common area) lives next door to a young lady who just happens to have a LOT of company coming and going!

SO ....

she parks her vehicle ACROSS BOTH SPOTS just enough so that no one can park in the extra spot !!

She only has one vehicle.

I rarely see anyone come to visit her.

AND she works at night !!

But, it really ticks her off, if someone parks in her spot. She even asks if we have seen any one park there when she isn't home !

There are so many more important things in life to be concerned about - so, I chuckle to myself EACH and EVERY time !!

Please take some time to visit Sayre and laugh with everyone !!

Is it wrong that I knew ALL the words to the song in the video that is on Sayre's Fun Monday site ??

Happy President's Day !!

i often end up parking into 2 spots if I think there's a chance i'll have trouble getting out of one spot later on (say at a busy store if i think it may take me a while to get out) because i have a big truck and short arms, i can't judge distance well, so i do everything i can to stay away from other vehicles, i ca'nt really 'turn around' to look while i'm backing out either... curse the short arms and bad vision!

Great post. Aw, little people, little concerns. Isn't life funny.

LOL! I took pictures of my SIL's parking job last Sunday. We were over at my in-law's house and SIL was on her way to visit, too. Dh decided to park in "her spot" just to piss her off. She doesn't live at home any more and "her spot" often caused problems when she did live at home. She likes to park her little sports car across the end of the driveway behind FIL's truck and MIL's SUV. It's only a problem if someone needs to leave! Dh parked on the street blocking the driveway, but SIL drove part way on the lawn to squeeze in between. She was really irked that he tried to take her spot and she was going to teach him a lesson!

Oh my goodness. This gal needs something more in her life for sure.

ChrisB said...

Well I suppose if she is entitled to two spaces~ so be it! :)

Faye said...

Agreed! Get a life! At least it's a reminder to you all to not stress over the small things. I'm wondering how she is as a neighbor. . .

Beckie said...

I agree with Ellen - that person needs something else in life to worry about. It is funny...

I live in a duplex and I live alone. I have college students living upstairs and they constantly take up all of the parking we have because their girlfriends will spend the night all the time, their friends come over, etc. While I get mad at myself for allowing it to bother me, I can understand this lady being frustrated and using two spaces. I've never asked my neighbors if the guys upstairs had people over while I was gone though. That's a little odd.

Rachel said...

That's crazy!! And just downright petty! If I had more than one spot and the other was NEVER used, I would have no problem sharing!

"J" said...

That CRACKS me up!!! That is something my mom would do...lol =)


Our parking at our apartment is CRAZY...so I know how she feels!!!

Alison said...

Wow...no wonder no one visits her....sad though...she must be pretty lonely.

She's lucky no one has keyed her car or vandalized it. I guess ome people need to know their "space" on this earth is sacred, I guess. She should move west and get herself some raw acreage. Then she wouldn't have to worry about someone taking up her space.

janet said...

wow. that is a person with a problem for sure!! perhaps she needs something better to concern herself with!

lisa marie said...

It's funny and it's sad and sometimes holding up our little space in the world is all we have. :(

ChrisB said...

Just popped back to say there is something for you over at my place today :)

Jettie said...

Ahh I love living in the country!!
make your own parking ticket and stick it on her winsheild for fun!!

SJ said...
