Just a note about a new phrase, for my ears.

On Wednesday, 4 SEP, as I was getting out of my just-parked car, a
person approached me, and asked if I'd mind moving my car to another
parking area for faculty.  She noted that preparations were underway for
a special dinner on Friday, and some large trucks would soon be parking
near my vehicle (which was next to a field house).

She said that she didn't want to see me 'parked in', and unable to leave
later in the day, since the large trucks would probably be blocking my
exit route.

The speaker works as one of several public relations representatives for
my campus.
