Over the weekend-my wife and I went to Cinergy in Midland to see a movie. After driving around the lot trying to find a parking space--I see one from a lane over that's in a great place. So I hurry around and drive down the lane only to get there and find the spot is open because someone parked OVER THE LINE in their space-preventing anyone else from parking on that side of their vehicle. I ended up driving a few lanes down and finding a spot not as close to the door and we went inside. Not knowing the person who owns this particular vehicle (It was a truck), or what may have been their motivation to park in this way, I am only left to guess a few different scenarios:

THEY WERE IN A HURRY.

Maybe their movie was close to its start time, so they "whipped" into the space and ran inside so they had a moment to get some popcorn before taking their seats. I mean-what kind of jerk takes up two spots ON PURPOSE if you're not running late and have all the time in the world to park correctly, right?

THEY JUST BOUGHT THE TRUCK AND DIDN'T WANT IT 'DINGED' IN THE LOT

I get it. Trucks are EXPENSIVE. More costly than a good down payment on a house-and in some cases about half as much as the full cost of a house, depending. So the last thing you wanna do is have your kid's college money invested into a vehicle that might possibly get a door opened against the paint job and scratched. Gotta make sure all of us careless folks running late don't whip in next to you and run in to get our popcorn.

THEY JUST DON'T CARE AND THINK THE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND THEM

Not EVERYONE who's elderly is handicapped and has a placard that allows them to park in a designated handicapped space. Not everyone who's dealing with a temporary injury like a broken foot/ankle/leg etc has a handicapped placard because it's not a permanent condition. So to you--the person who did this--you left a perfectly good parking space right in the front row by the front doors of the theater--unable to be used because of your carelessness. The world needs to care about our fellow man and stop this whole "ME ME ME" syndrome that is largely present in younger folks these days. Next time--please think of others when you park-AND DO BETTER.
