Problem Averted

Just picked up three $5.00 Starbucks cards and made little notes that say:

"Thanks for parking in my spot. I hope you enjoy this little treat and remember to find another spot next time!"

Last night, my middle sister was driving me home and she said "You know, you have to be kind to the person who parked in your spot."

Dangit. I hate when she's smarter than me!

Wow. I am not worthy to be your house mate.

And I am so not worthy to be your friend.
I guess that's it then.

I like Starbucks

That was a great idea! I'm guessing it will work much better than yelling or a mean note...did you give the same person all three cards? Or save the other two for another such occurrence?

Brad...come park in my spot!

TM: I have not done it yet...they are in my car for future use...but I thought of Mark and how he loved his neighbor even to the point of getting "badly beaten" and realized...I have a choice here. So..killing with kindness was my goal! :) Now, I'm waiting for them to park there!

I will come and park there!

I just have to say that my sick mind says - if I got a starbucks card on my car - I would keep parking there in hopes for another starbucks card.

LOL! I thought about that too...I probably would do the same...but the note is kinda firm in that I might not be as "kind" next time :)

So far...have not had to use! WHEW.

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.

Twitter...see what I'm doing!
