The picture tells a story…..a story told too many times every day in the book of Agricola’s life. Inconsiderate behavior practiced by far too many people.
I guess his "off-road" vehicle is too delicate to endure the nicks and dents that we all endure when using public parking. To protect the value of his investment, he decides to impose his self-interest on the less fortunate….like the handicapped. Your scribe has seen far worse, including, but not limited to, parallel parking and angled parking, whose sole purpose is to "protect" the lout’s car at the expense of other people’s access to parking. The sad news is that all of us are guilty, in that we, sheep-like, allow these acts to occur without speaking up. There is no sense of shame; inconsiderate behavior goes unpunished, and we watch helplessly as our long established rules of behavior are torn apart by the children, posing as adults, who live among us.
Add this lout to the Inconsiderate Bastard Hall of Fame, along with those who park in directly in front of the grocery store instead of finding a parking place 15 steps away, smokers who dump their butts at intersections instead of using their ash trays, drivers who think the left lane of interstate highways is NOT for passing and get offended when someone tries to pass, and most importantly, those IDIOTS who think they are being considerate when they stop, in their lane of a four lane road, and motion the turning driver to proceed, AS IF THEY CONTROLLED BOTH LANES! God save us from that particular act of
vehicular suicide kindness.
