Flag, Barf, Paper Towel

IMG_4728

This was a curious find in the garage stairwell this morning. Someone was conscientious enough to leave a warning flag below the barf to warn people there was barf two treads above the flag. The person also left a paper towel above the barf incase you were not paying attention (like looking at your phone or the trains through the window) and stepped in the barf, you could use the paper towel to wipe the barf off of your shoes. People are rarely so considerate, especially when it comes to barfing on the stairs in the parking structure, which is quite often. Restores a bit of faith in humanity.

Pillow Parking

A pillow with racing stripes parked next to my MX-5 this morning. Maybe it felt a kinship with the MX-5 being close to the same color and having racing stripes; although the pillow did not have a parking permit. I park on the 6th level of the parking garage, that, by the way, I was banned for life from in January 2016; however, the parking permit department didn’t get the memo that I was banned for life, and they issued me a parking permit to park in the garage I was banned for life from over a year ago.

For my “green” red car update, I’ve been driving to schools this week to survey sites and facilities in order to update fire escape plans. With people coming back from vacations, and getting ready to go back to school, there has been a lot more stop and go traffic in my normal daily commute. But then, with driving to different schools, I did a lot more city driving, and ran into a lot more road construction over the past week. My mileage dropped a full mile per gallon this last tank of gas to 39.1 mpg (16.62 kpl) driving 352.8 miles (567.8 kilometers). That’s not too bad for more city driving.
