You're getting older. Subconsciously you are checking out just exactly where you parked, but no matter, when you come back out of the store, even when you have the only bike in the parking lot, you'll be standing at the front door going 'Ehh, where did I park. Excuse me young man, do you know where I parked my bike?' 'Is it that one over there?' 'Oh, ho ho ho, yep thats the one. I'd loose my head if it wasn't screwed on' 'That one never gets old sir, now if you'll excuse me I have to help that lady over there' 'Excuse me young man, do you know where I parked my Park Avenue?' etc etc.
The cart pusher in the parking lot actually knows what very few others do, he is unfortunately the understudy of the valet, and life SUCKSSS!!!!! Tip them, tip them well.
Retiring soon are ya?
Yep, sometimes at night right after i let the dogs out i go to the garage door, put on the light and take one last peak! My wife thinks Im nuts! She yells down from upstairs and asks Are you saying goodnight to your motorcycle??
Then she calls me a "wacko" Oh well I am what I am.
Before retiring I worked in NYC. I would have to leave early to have a buffer for being caught in traffic. So I always arrived around 15 - 30 minutes ahead of time.
There was a guy that would park his car every day, and without fail he would walk about 10 foot and turn around and look at it. Then he would walk about another 10 foot and turn around and look at it...and so on..and so on...until he was out of sight.
Every now and then he would come back to check the doors, and repeat the whole process.
I would joke to myself "come-on buddy...you can get one more glance in!"
It got to where I could predict to the second when the glances back would come.
That was before I had heard of OCD, and I just thought it was funny.
We're all a little nuts. I do the one last check on the bike at night thing on a pretty regular basis - even in the winter when it's too cold to have ridden that day. I've also found that I pat the the tank after parking her in the garage. It's kind of like giving her a gentle "good game".
