It’s been a looooooooooooooong time since I posted Peter Parkers. Probably so long that it’s worth reminding you why they are called Peter Parkers:
Peter Parker – Well, there’s a nickname for “Richard” that one might use to describe how these people park..”Park Like A Richard” BUT “Peter” seems like a better word since this is a family show. AND it flows better ….with Parker so you get, “Peter Parker.”
So these people just can’t seem to figure out that their vehicles were supposed to go BETWEEN the white thingies. (Maybe they are all driven by Jeff Reed’?) And they are so blatantly bad, I didn’t even have to use the Jagoff-estrator technology.
No matter how many of these we post, the Peter Parking problem continues… people are STILL inconsiderate of others!
So here are MY thoughts AGAIN…. “Don’t Hate – Educate!” So, I would suggest that these drivers, spend a full-day just sitting in one of the local Pennsylvania Drivers License Centers. (Not one where Sidney Crosby cuts the line because seeing him would NOT be punishment.)
While there, they don’t have to practice parking, they just have to sit there all day. Basically, if you spend a whole day at one of those places doing some people watching, you will do ANYTHING to not have to go back… including promising to NEVER park like this again.
In the meantime, what do you think the conversation with any of these drivers would be if you approached them? Here’s how I envision any of these drivers responding:
“ Sorry, I’m not used to these line-thingies cuz, when I USUALLY come to Jo-Ann fabrics for some scrapbooking supplies or do a Red Box Drop-off, I normally just pull in at the curb in front of the store and put my 4-way flashers on and, yes, I realize I am blocking the cross walk, I’m only gonna be a MINUTE!!!”
Either that or you find and older gentleman, who dropped off the scrapbookin’ Mrs. at the front door (while everyone waited behind him) and now he is poised in the “Emergency Response” position for when she comes out with her arms full of glue sticks!
Or maybe it’s a younger driver who had to do some very important texting as they pulled into the spot at 89mph.
Listen you pull-in-without-regard-to-time-place-or-dimension-spatially-awareness-challenged-Peter-parker-perpetrators, I realize it may take you an extra 1.585782251 minutes to park BETWEEN THE LINES like the REST OF US (who also have important things to do) but, how about squeezin’ that hobby-supply-rig IN BETWEEN the white lines, and make room for the rest of us, YA JAGOFFS!
And don’t for get the CHALK CHALLENGE!
Next time you see a Peter Parker, write YaJagoff.com on the ground near the car and THEN take the picture.
