Because it’s summer, and there’s a de facto strike, and we’re all bored, I thought a little levity was in order. I’m told that CAA is making all their assistants park in the bottom level of their garage in horrid stack parking. Plus, there’s only one elevator that goes down there at 2000 Avenue Of The Stars. And there’s some sort of tracking system to make sure the peons park in their pen. Also, some of the assistants have been stuck in the garage for 30 minutes because the valets lost their keys with the stack parking. (I bet the bosses’ skinny lattes contained unexpected bodily fluids the next morning…) The internal agency muttering is that it’s yet another draconian CAA cost-cutting measure. But the tenpercentery claims the building/landlord is working to accommodate a growing tenant roster, so parking changes are affecting multiple tenants who park on certain floors of the garage. By the way, the above photo is generic, not the CAA parking structure. (Fair warning: I’m being guilted into, once in a while, muckraking on behalf of all the poorly treated assistants who toil in the Industry and get fucked over by the missteps of their superiors. So watch out…)
