Getting Truck-Blocked in the Parking Lot

Getting Truck-Blocked in the Parking Lot

So, this morning I was so irritated because I couldn’t get into the 7-11 parking lot. I mean, I needed my Diet Mountain Dew for goodness’ sake, and I needed it now! Stupid truck. Blocking the whole parking lot and making me drive around the corner to park on the street. On the street! Like a nobody! I am a Valley Village 7-11 platinum member, people, do not make me park more than 10 feet from the Slurpee machine!


Yeah, I know, I’m working on a documentary about the Interstate Highway System and freight transportation. I love me some big trucks. But <insert whine> I was in a hurrrrrry. 


Just a reminder that we all can forget that a little inconvenience – even at a convenience store – means more Diet Dew and I-totally-forgot-I-needed milk for everyone. Try not to be like me the next time a big truck is in your way. Instead, be a little impressed that the driver could even get into that tiny parking lot. (If you see the driver, be sure to #THANKaTRUCKER)


Also, we wanted to steer you towards our new website Gallery of behind-the-scenes photos from some of our travels this past year. Take a look at all the glitter and glamour that goes into documentary filmmaking. And sign up for our newsletter to receive exclusive video beginning next week!


Thanks for letting me whine, and thanks for joining us on this fun ride. We’d love to hear from you. Say hello on Facebook or Twitter or in the comments below!
