What I've learned from working in the city part 1:

There are three distinct different groups, and it's relevant in the parking lots:

-Upper Class. You park in a hotel. It's a completely covered, well lit area with numberd parking spots, video surveillance and elevators leading you directly into the building. There's a posted guard and I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it was climate-controlled. Cost? 20 bucks for an eight hour shift.

-Middle Class. It's slightly covered and a small walk to the building. If it rains, you won't get soaked, but those cracks in the ceiling ensure you'll get a bit wet. There's a covered overpass to your office building. Cost? Just over $14 for an 8 hour shift.

-Lower Class. It's a dirt lot that's farthest away from the building. You have to cross a busy main road (with no lights or stop signs... it's essentially a highway) to begin your tedious treck to the office building. Cost? $3 for the entire day.

(Guess which one I park in!)
