It’s that time of year again where the heat turns a lot of people into idiots. Maybe it isn’t the heat, maybe they are like that all the time. Yes?
I have learned from past experiences, that if I’m driving in a parking lot, not to make any hand gestures or mouth anything that might be misconstrued, like that would ever happen, LOL!
So I drive through parking lots expecting the unexpected and I’m usually right. The other day some people were heading in the direction of the store, totally oblivious to anything and everything. If Brad Pitt dropped dead in front of them, they would probably walk over the body. Most of them are sauntering down the center of the isle like it’s their own backyard. They don’t look from side to side; they certainly don’t care if there is a line of cars behind they, and they are not very cautious watching out for speeders with huge monster trucks trying to impress whom ever is around. I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that people cross major streets the same way. They have their head in the clouds, walking like turtles, not caring if the light turns or not . . . the pedestrians have the right of way, and they certainly milk it.
I can’t say this behavior is exclusive to the younger generation. Actually, I seem to notice that many 30 to 50 year olds have this “I don’t care about you, it’s all about me” attitude. As a side note, most of them go to the stores dressed like they just rolled out of bed or cleaned out the garage. No self-esteem there!
I’ve tried shopping in different neighbors, on different days and times, but you know what? These people are all over the place.
I can only see one solution to this problem. Order everything on line and have it delivered directly to my house. I actually did this the other day, but had to drive to the store to exchange the delivered, damaged merchandise.
I can’t win for losing!
