A few months ago, I was in the parking lot of a Sam’s Club when I encountered the laziest driver that I have ever seen.
As I’m driving down one of the lanes, looking for a parking spot, the motorist in front of me stops. There were no empty parking spaces nearby, so after about thirty seconds, I craned my neck to see what was going on.
I discovered that one of the parked cars was stalled, and was getting a jump start. You could tell that they had just started, since the drivers of both cars were standing outside their vehicles.
Apparently, the fella in front of me decided to wait for this other guy to get his jump start, so that he could claim the soon-to-be-vacated parking spot – a cushy spot right close to the Sam’s Club entrance. Never mind that there were plenty of empty spots around – this one was right by the entrance, by Jiminy! In the meantime, traffic was building up behind us, so I was unable to back out of the way.
After a five minute wait (which felt more like an hour), the parked car finally pulled out of its slot. The fella in front of me quickly pulled right in, to my tremendous relief. I drove right past him and quickly claimed a slot in the adjacent lane.
Boy, I sure hope that wait was worth it for this fella.
