No Parking - Fire Lane

I think I missed something.

I need to go back and take the driving permit test again.

Apparently, when it says on the asphalt in clear, bright yellow letters "NO PARKING FIRE LANE", that actually means "parking only for obviously Orthodox people on late Friday afternoons who are in a rush or just too plain lazy to look for a parking spot because that might require them to walk the whole minute and a half to the store and would rather make a chilull Hashem instead".

'Derech Eretz' may be 'Kadmah LaTorah' but it certainly isn't 'Kadmah to being quicker at the dry cleaners'.

Just think of all the time I could've saved over the years had I known this all along.
