Please God, help me find a parking spot!

I heard a joke on the Freethought Radio podcast that makes me chuckle and throw up my hands in exasperation at the same time.  I’ll try to re-tell it here, but it is paraphrased:

A guy is running late for a job interview, and as he approaches the busy parking lot of the company he starts to pray.

“Please God, help me find a parking spot.  I can’t be late for this job interview – I really need this job…my family needs me to get this job.  Please, help me find a parking spot right next to the front door, God, and I’ll do anything: I’ll give up women.  I’ll  give up smoking and gambling and drinking.  Please God, one little parking spot.”

Just as the man is approaching the front of the building complex, he sees a car backing out from a spot right in front of the main entrance!  The man is elated!  He parks, grabs his briefcase, and as he is getting out the car he casts his eyes toward the sky and he says,

“Never mind, God.  I found one myself.”

Le sigh.  People are interesting creatures, aren’t we?

    Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I
    wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get three
    emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove
    people from that service? Cheers!
