Oi!


Hey, you! Yeah, you, in the parking lot! I'm not sure why you don't know this, but allow me to remind you - the rules apply to you, too! Maybe your mother raised you wrong, or maybe you imagine you're special or important, but you're not. See that sign that says "No Parking?" DON'T PARK THERE. See those pretty white lines? PARK THERE. And even though there are no explicit "No Parking" signs at the end of each row, do you see any white lines there? NO. DON'T PARK THERE.

Why do people think that rules don't apply to them, either legal or social? This also goes for the people at the shopping center who park in the fire lane in front of the store they're in (grocery store, Best Buy, Wal*Mart, whatever), the people who ignore the single line for multiple cashiers and just walk up to one, the people who think their problems are more important than anyone else's so they should be served first, the people who don't read directions or signs and then expect everyone else to cater to their ignorance, the people who don't use turn signals, the people who race up and force their way into merging traffic even when they knew about it a mile ago, and everybody else with a false sense of entitlement. SHUT UP, SIT DOWN, WAIT YOUR TURN AND GET OVER YOURSELF.

We have more cars than spaces and a valet service to make up the difference, but that doesn't stop people from parking on my side of the parking lot in illegal and BLOCKING spaces. And our office doesn't seem to care. Some day when I get to work late I'm going to be tempted to do the same, but I have too much respect for the coworker who'd have to maneuver around my car.

And as far as the parking goes, no good deed goes unpunished: one time when I actually WAS blocked and couldn't tell I dinged a car and even though they weren't even parked in a space my insurance still was the one that had to pay. I still see red about that: you can park illegally and the other guy has to pay for hitting you? Blah.

Oh ya, penning people in is SO SMART.

I remember once in Philly I went out to a club, got back to my car around 3:00 a.m., and I was blocked in. I stood there for 10 minutes leaning on my horn in a residential area, because I had no physical way of getting out. The guy finally came down and moved his car, but oh well - not my fault the neighbors hate him now. (After that I left a "DO NOT BLOCK" note on my car every time I parked there.)

One time, a fellow parked in a handicap spot. No tag, just parked there. He was about to RUN in the store when I stopped him. My mother was with me and she WAS handicapped. I asked him to move. He said no. I told him then the only solution to this would be to break his legs to make him handicapped.

He moved.
