Maxine was driving down the street in a sweat because she had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place.
Looking up toward heaven, she said, 'Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to church every Sunday for the rest of my life and give up sex and martinis.'
Miraculously, a parking place appeared.
She looked up again and said, 'Never mind. I found one.'
