Shmuel, a life-long resident of Jerusalem, is on his way to court for an important trial and sadly gets a late start to his morning. By the time he gets to the court house, all the parking spots are taken.
"Ribbono shel Olam,Master of the universe. I swear I will give 10% tzedakah each year, daven three times a day, make my home a meeting place for Torah scholars, go to the mikveh before Shabbos each week, I’ll wait eight hours between meat and dairy foods, only just this: I need a place to park right now.”
