School is for gaining knowledge - but not necessarily academia lessons only. For example, I learned that if, for some reason, you drive to work on E and park on a slope, come lunch time when you need to drive to a particular college to purchase books and get a student id before the office closes since this college is so small and the id office is only open two days a week, 4 hours at a time, the car probably won’t start...no matter how much you gun the engine.
And, although in the past when the driver was dumb enough to make the same mistake but solved it by coasting to a flat part of the parking lot, starting the car, then driving across the road to a gas station, today – since it’s her lucky day – there will be a car parked in the one spot she needs to coast through.
Then after trying, unsuccessfully, to locate the owner of the car and beg them to move, the driver – my friend…because this story obviously is not about me – will try her car again and it will start.
So, the moral of the story is this: ALWAYS PULL THROUGH TO THE FAR PARKING SPOT IN CASE YOU NEED TO COAST LATER.
