A Different Perspective

This is a little creative exercise I give my students.
The picture represents a store with an entrance and an exit. And parking spaces numbered 1 to 22.
The question is "What is the best parking space?"
The usual answer is:
- Any space between 7 and 16 would be best.
Here is where the creative part comes in.
'Make up a situation where there would be different optimal parking spaces'
Here are a few examples:
1) If you are buying something – The best place would be 16 or 17 because you are carrying something out of the store.
2) If the store is about to close – Spaces 6 or 7 to get in in time.
3) If you are over weight – Spaces 1 or 22 to walk more.

See if you can come up with something.

Park sideways in spots 11,12, 13 and photograph the ugly faces people make at you as part of a public art project.

6 or 7. If I decide to buy something, I can just leave through the "enter" door. What are they going to do, arrest me?
