Where not to park

From Bad Driving and Parking

This offense is so grievous that I felt I must include it yet again. In front of the doors, in a fire lane and a pedestrian crosswalk; obstructing the flow of traffic. There is no excuse for this. If you need help loading something, you get an employee with a flatbed cart. If you need to pick someone up, make certain that you are out of the way. Wal-Mart even provides mobility devices if you are handicapped, and I am sure that an employee would be happy to bring it back from your vehicle. This is not only a terrible inconvenience and blatant disregard for common courtesy, but it is also a violation of several state and local laws, not to mention federal fire and emergency codes pertaining to buildings. I mean, seriously, how hard is it to walk a whole 200 frakkin' feet just to load up your groceries from a mother-loving cart? As Dennis Leary wrote, 'A**HOLE' (this is a family-friendly blog after all, isn't it?)

Epic fail.

So I was at one of my favorite sites today, the failblog, and saw this. I don't quite know how to react to this one. Apparently they can get out of their truck with no assistance, but are somehow handicapped? Wonderful world we live in.

From Bad Driving and Parking

It has been a while since my last post, so let's get right down to it!

This lady has decided to park in a no-parking 'Fire Zone' outside of a popular retailer. I suppose it doesn't make it any better that she was on her cell phone. Maybe she simply forgot how to park in the spots, and forgot how to read, and thought the world should just stop for her while she obstructed traffic. What's even worse is how many other people will stop here and just wait for more than a few seconds. However, this lady was still there after I came back out 10 minutes later, which means she left her car running that long too!

I apologize that the photo is a bit blurry, but night photos are so hard to get well.

Another offense.

From Bad Driving and Parking

Perhaps many of you don't even think about it, but this is another offense many people are guilty of. The lines are there for a reason, and that is to allow you to show off your parking skills (or lack thereof, in this case). Parking over the line to the front, especially this close to a building, is unacceptable. This goes for big trucks too, who decide to park close and stick out too far. Seriously, is it so hard to check and rectify the parking situation?

Amazing or...

From Bad Driving and Parking

I bet a lot of people do this, but it never ceases to amaze me just how inconsiderate people can be. This is a Handicapped spot, but the person has no handicapped tags. It is disgraceful. Then again, I think handicapped spots have to be blue on all lines bordering the spot, so the wal-mart spots may not be legal. Either way, this is a pitiful example of human behavior. And the date and time on that photo are accurate, in case anyone needs that information.

Updates, updates, updates.

Tonight, I have, for your viewing pleasure, 3 updates! This is the first one.

As you can see, this person simply does not understand the finer points of pulling in between lines. Maybe the rain made them unable to see that white line on the darker pavement, who knows. All I can say is, I hope they drive better than they park.
