Parking anxiety

I have this weird thing and I think it's best described with "Parking anxiety". I don't mind driving a car or motorcycle, but I have a hard time if I have to park somewhere I don't know. I'm afraid there won't be a parking spot or if there is, it will be time-limited and I will get a ticket. I don't like parking houses because of the steep ramps and the thing with the payment machines — how do you know when to check in and out? Is it just your credit card or do you need a paper thing that has to be in the window? There are so many unwritten rules and I hate it.

Like I mentioned yesterday, I have a job interview tomorrow (I managed to find my white shirt collar!! so my outfit is complete). It's around noon so technically I could drive there in my parents' car (it takes a few hours). I won't.
Currently, I'm on a train. I'll be staying with family tonight and taking a bus to the interview tomorrow. I have public transport anxiety too, but it's less than my parking anxiety. The trip today will be 5 hours in total. Then my cousin will meet me at a station and we'll take a bus together.
No car means I only have to take care of myself. If I'm good, everything is good. No need to worry about gas, accidents or parking spots.
