My Own Private Highway to Hell

I once had a college roommate ask if I was going to use my powers for good or evil after yesterday I think that question has finally been answered.

Yesterday evening I need to stop by the local mega store, as I was circling the parking lot looking for the closest space to the door a thought came to mind: I wish my mom was here so I could use her handicap placard so I can get a really good space. I would like to say this is the first time I have had this thought but its not. Often and I mean often I wish my mom was with me when I go shopping so I can get a good parking space.

But yesterday I hit an all time low. I went beyond wishing she was with me, I started wishing she had left her placard in my car so I could park in a good spot. But then I took it one step further....for a brief split second I considered going to my mom’s house and getting her placard. I then imagined the following conversation:
  • Me: Hey Mom I am in your parking lot!
  • Mom: Why are you calling just come in?
  • Me: I need a favor.
  • Mom: What?
  • Me: Can I borrow your handicap sign?
  • Mom: Why?
  • Me: I am tired and there is no good parking at the store.
  • Mom: (hesitatingly) I guess.
  • Me: Can you bring it out to me?
Yup in my imagined conversation I wanted my mother, who is currently in need of a hip and knee replacement not to mention suffering from planters fasciitis, to walk from her apartment to my car so I would have a good parking space.

I am happy to say that none of this occurred. I finally just picked a parking spot and went into the store. However I am positive of two things 1. I am the laziest/most selfish person I know and 2. I am well on my way to joining the dark side.

Some would say it was only a matter of time. 


  1. It's ok, we have cookies over here on the dark side... you can join us at any time!!!

  2. LOL, you're not the only one on the way to the dark side :/ There is a support group called Almost There and we meet on Wednesdays :) No there isn't, that I know of, but perhaps someone should start one LOL I like cookies to :(
