I need to invent a new word, can you help?

I am very lucky when it comes to parking.
Even in a very crowded place , one opens up for me just as I arrive.
This has been going on for years! My family and friends all know about it.
It keeps happening in all sorts of different settings , the mall, sporting events , parades,
even just on the street in a crowded part of town.
Why isn't there a word for this?

12. Confirmation Bias...

 

It's similar to how often I notice that the bedroom clock is at 3:14 (which I once whimsically referred to as Pi hour) when I look at it , or others were always just thinking of a loved one just before they called. In other words, a tendency to remember certain events and forgetting others.

Confirmation Bias.
