i'm suddenly seeing all kinds of electric outlets in public where it would be incredibly easy to plug in for a while when needed. there's 4 at the post office where my po box is and they're actually out in the parking lot on posts, most accessible! i could use these late nights or weekends and probably not arouse much suspicion. then there are many in the mall's parking garage where i sometimes park for work, not a late night solution, but anytime during mall hours would probably be easy. and there's one outside my work, though i'd have to put a cord across the sidewalk to access that one. and then there's one outside st. mark's coffee house on a post near the street. would be a great late night access point when the business is closed.
makes me think it would be easier to live without my parking spot that i had once imagined. i'm sure there would be some run ins with security guards or police when using these spots, but it would be easy enough to explain and move on. and in most cases, if they didn't see me plugging in, why would they notice? i may try them out just for fun!
