So, what's up with this? Here is--- A Rant...by me.
This feller pulled into the parking place just exactly opposite me in Wally World parking lot this morning. I on the other hand had just gotten into my vehicle after putting the groceries away into my vehicle's trunk. After I got into my car I saw that I had several text messages so I read them while still parked and responded and made one appointment. I noticed the ol' feller was still there, motor running and stuck to his seat as if it and he and it were made from velcro materials.
I got out of the car to dig my Heath Bar out of the trunk where the bags were and still...he sat. Then the proverbial lightbulb came on over my head. He was waiting for ME to move so he could park the wrong way, facing out. I obliged and he moved into the place I was. He wasted 5 to 7 or so minutes waiting with motor running to save about 6 seconds it would have taken him to back out of that space he was in. But oh well I guess.
Then, I have seen people sitting and idling for minutes...long minutes not just 1 or so moments, to scarf up a parking slot just exactly ONE space closer. If someone is making to leave that space, they will wait instead of just parking in the space adjacent. I am kind and I don't "find other things to do"...I just leave so they can be their one space closer.
Then to top off the morning, on the way home I have observed that it must now be passe to stop for a stop sign. Just sail on through..."they" will watch for you and stop themselves regardless of your running the stop sign, won't they? Sure they will.
But having made it through the stop sign without stopping, go ahead and make your turn without giving anyone else on the road a clue. Make it better by pulling out into traffic after only looking one way, not both and give the rest of us a thrill trying to avoid broadsiding you. And drive with one hand while dangling the other out of the window. After all, it's a pretty day and your arm needs the breeze and surely no other driver will cause you to need good control of your vehicle.
OK. Done. As you can tell this was the morning of mornings regarding traffic for me. :-)))
