This is my personal thoughts, opinions and musings place. I will also rant about things, especially politically-correct things that irritate me. And sci-fi. Did I mention sci-fi? There'll be lots of sci-fi stuff here. And movies, too. Mmmmm... Movies

Parking, and why a license should be a priviledge not a right

So, there we were, working quietly and minding our own business, until someone who shall remain nameless came up to us and said, “Hey guys, check out the parking lot!” Well, as you can imagine, that was the end of any work being done as we all stood about, gauking at the inner stupid being released from various people.

Now, for a bit of background. It snowed the night before, and so early in the morning, the parking lot was covered and you couldn't see the markings. So, two rows of cars parked where people believed they were supposed to. They were wrong, of course, but who can blame them? You couldn't really see the markings, as I said. So, about lunchtime, after most of the snow had been cleared off and/or melted, six people show up and park where they think they're supposed to, but fail to consider that by doing so, they're going to block other cars in. Basically, too stupid to drive.

So this is how it started. A few morons decide they can't be bothered to tell how other people are parking Posted by Hello

By around 3 o'clock in the afternoon, a whole bunch of other people showed up, and blocked an entire row of cars. Blind following the blind, is what that is.

And this is how it ended, at lunch. An entire new parking row got created through sheer stupid pigheadedness Posted by Hello

I got trapped like that once. And it was very easy to see how the parking lot was structured. It was a bright, sunny day and the parking lot is not that big. Some people either don't care, or they are too old to understand what they are doing :)

To not care implies they had to have seen it and decided to go ahead and block people in. I think these people just weren't paying attention. You'd think that in this town, people would learn to deal with snow and snow-covered parking lots.
