[ - ] looking for shoes I can wear to work with skirts without stockings this summer. I work in a very "corporate" environment. I'm having trouble finding something formal enough that is still confortable without stockings. Any ideas? prefer fairly low heals. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] What's the deal with street parking and the biweekly street cleaning? Do people actually hire somebody to sit in the car on those days? Also, isn't the whole moving car to the other side of the street while the cleaner goes through and moving back to your old spot nerve wrecking? I can imagine how somebody would just swoop in and "steal" your spot or cars blocking each other etc. etc. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It varies but the general rule (UNOFFICIAL RULE) is if double parking is "allowed" in your neighborhood then you double park before the deadline and stay in/with your car until the dealine. If you are boxing someone in, leave a cell phone number on your dashboard. Then ten minutes before alt side ends, move your car to the about to become legal side. Usually this courtesy is allowed only on one way streets without schools or firehouses. Do not be late moving back! That ticket is more. [ Reply | More ]
