Hey what ever happened to the days when people could park thier cars? I was called to IT meeting off site. When I got there there was no parking. They had parking for:

01. Pregnant women
02. Handicapped
03. Police
04. Service vehicles
05. Permit only
06. Visitors / Guest
07. Employee of the Month
08. Management only
09. Loading zone / standing only
10. Metered limited to 30 minutes
11. Security
12. VIP's
13. Checkin Only

I drove around and around until I found a lot where they charged me $10.00 for parking until 1700. I hiked 2 miles to the building had a 1 hr long meeting then hiked back.

That meeting could have been conducted using NetMeeting or MSN Messenger online and cost me nothing. Heck I could have sat in the 30 minute spot, uplinked with my notebook, and only paid the meter when the meter maid showed if she did.

When will people learn that technology can be a benefit?

Not for everyone

by chetdavs In reply to NO PARKING...

Technology is great but not everyone is able to kep on the cutting edge of technology. I know numerous people who are still kicking and screaming saying they do not need to use a computer, even though they are execs. in large corporations. Companies should train their employees to stay up with technology, but maybe not on the cutting edge, due to cost constraints.
