It wasn't that funny, just dumb. I was riding around town, got up on to a sidewalk to park, and totally ignored my surroundings - where I parked was wide and street-level. Where I was going wasn't. It was raised up off the grass about a foot on the left, and against a building on the right, and about a meter wide. No turning around, and the one-foot dropoff was not looking good. So I took the stairs.
