Mini Saga #43 – Notice

Mini Saga #43 – Notice

By Rajesh Setty on Mon 30 Nov 2009, 12:18 AM – 3 Comments

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.



 1. Thanks to Jason Dirks, co-founder of Meylah for the inspiration for this story.

2. A mini saga is a story told in exactly 50 words. Not 49 or 51 but exactly 50.

3. You can download a photographic manifesto of Mini Sagas at ChangeThis. Here is the link – Mini Sagas: Bite-sized Wisdom for Life and Business (PDF, 2.9MB).

I totally can relate to it. I have realized that I need to slow down to notice:)

Thanks for sharing.

Rajesh, I would contest it by all means. Have some solace in the fact that this happens all over the world.

There are places here in australia where they chalk your car tyres as you get out of your car. Really quite a joke.
