I parked across the street in the underground parking lot at city hall. It's quite large so when I parked, I looked to see where I was so I'd remember. I left through the "deer" exit (the exits are named after animals).
When I headed back to get my car 3.5 hours later, I went down the "deer" entrance and walked down two sets of stairs and exited through the purple door. I remembered that I was parked at "2Q purple" (second floor down, Q row, purple section). I walked to the purple section but couldn't find the "Q" row. I was positive that I'd parked in the purple section so walked up and down the purple rows over and over and over.
After about 15 minutes, I was starting to feel a bit of panic.
Where's my car?!
There was a green exit door next to the purple exit door so I walked around the corner to where it would have opened ... and there was row Q. I walked up the row and there was my car.
Have you ever lost your car?
