Mini Saga #43 – Notice


We notice what we notice and sometimes what we notice is not enough.

Enjoy the story:


The parking sign was clear – “No Parking from 6pm to 6am.” The time was still 5.30pm. Tim rushed inside the store. He came back in less than twenty minutes only to find a parking ticket clinging to the windshield. He just noticed that until 6pm it was “paid” parking.
