The Seven Stages of Parking Stage One - You're a kid. All you have to park is your butt. Stage Two - You're a teenager and you park with a girl who has a good chance of being your future wife. Stage Three - You're married with kids and are parking a mini-van at McDonald's. Stage Four - The kids are grown and working at McDonald's, you've got a sports car and are caught parking with a girl who has no chance of being your future wife. Stage Five - You're parking in the garage for a while, where you're also living. Stage Six - You're old, no car no license no parking spot. Stage Seven - You're parked. Permanently. In your own space. Even has your name over it.
