SOS parking issue has a solution nearby

Enough with the lousy parking at the SOS. The SOS has the traffic of a large department store and the parking lot for a 7/11.

Going down Hirst, you can easily get stuck waiting for someone to turn into their lot, which is backed up because someone is waiting for a spot to open. I’ve been backed up all the way to McMillan. Once you get past the entrance it becomes a dodgeball game avoiding shoppers walking or jaywalking to their cars parked on the street.

There is an obvious solution and it is right next door, with a big ‘for sale’ sign parked on it.
