What you are looking at I cam upon as I was walking along a sidewalk, going to enter a business. Here are the facts as I observed them. This business has a VERY LARGE parking lot, if I were to guess there are well over 400 parking spaces. The lot was probably 3/4 full, but this spot was close to building, about 50 feet from the front door. I had to stop and take a photo of this and do a little venting. My questions are 2. 1 - Did the person actually back into this parking space knowing full well that they have this extension on the back of their truck so they didn't want it to stick out in "traffic" on the other end of the space thinking that was a better option to have the pedestrians walk around it into the landscaping of the business? 2 - Did the person not even stop to think about the extension on the back and backs into every spot and just walk out the driver door, out the front of the truck and "forget" about the extension? I guess the answer to either question would not be "OK" with this guy.
If it is scenario #1, then that person is a statement about a portion of our society that ONLY cares and ONLY considers what is GOOD FOR THEM, and does not care how their actions effect anyone else. The attitude of "IT IS ALL ABOUT ME!" If it is #2 and they are so caught up in their "busy life" and they are in such a hurry to rush into the business - it is another statement that says, "I am not smart enough to realize that when I back up into this spot that I have this extension on the back of my truck and the next time I do it I will probably back into another car, or maybe even my garage wall."
Maybe this is over analyzing or over reacting, but my thought is that more of us that do consider how our actions effect other people, should call out these "issues" to others and let them know that it is not OK. Don't even get me started on the lady that I saw on a news story that won ONE MILLION DOLLARS (OK the take home was just over half, so 500 THOUSAND DOLLARS) and thought it was still OK to collect her "food stamps" and government assistance money because she was "struggling"!!! WHOA! Call them like you see them, that is FLAT OUT wrong. Where are the ethics? Where are the morals? We need to get them back some how.
