I am often amazed (uncomfortably so) at the selfish actions of some people. At least I perceive their actions to be selfish, but in reality I think they are oblivious to acceptable behavior.
The other day I was at the grocery store. I pulled my car into the parking lot and the first available spot. Wait, there was a lady (I perhaps use that turn loosely) who was moving bags from the cart into her truck. And the truck door was wide open thus blocking the open parking spot.
I totally understood that issue so just parked one more spot down. When I came out of the store a few moments later, the lady (?) and the truck were gone. But the cart was straddling the dividing line, so basically two parking spaces were unavailable. And the part that makes me mutter “What the…” is that the area to return the carts was a mere six feet away – directly behind where the truck had been parked.
This selfish/inconsiderate act — or non-act — is all too common today. Why is that?
Here’s my “stamp of disapproval.”
