I've heard the joke/cliche before, but I've never seen it in real life before today. Someone driving around the parking lot or waiting for someone to back out for 20min so they can have the absolutely closest parking spot AT THE GYM!!!!
Before they go spend the next hour plodding along on the treadmill.
I was the second of 4 cars that were stopped because a lady was waiting for a couple that was talking, to get in the car and leave. We were just sitting there, stuck in the parking lot, for nearly 10min so that she could get a spot next to the front door. I was so stunned when I realized what was happening, that I couldn't even be mad. So stunned, that I didn't even call her out!!!
I could understand taking a close spot if it happens to be available, but that it was at the gym, and they were willing to wait for so long blows my mind. How many others do this? Have any of you? And what does this say about us as a culture?In response to this, I am going to make a statement against Laziness by taking the FARTHEST possible parking spot I can find everywhere I drive to through out June and challenge anyone else out there willing to give a try, to do the same
How many people will look at that challenge and just absolutely dread the thought? :'( I bet most people who read it won't even do it for a day!!! But really, how much will it really inconvenience you to walk for an extra minute or two?
I really hope some others out there join me in this. Maybe it will make a few people stop and think about how lazy we are sometimes. Let me know if your up to the challenge, or tell me why not. I would love to hear your reasons.
