You’re about to reverse into one of the few parking spaces left when you notice one of the cars on either side is at an acute angle.
On the other side, that car is too close to the line which separates the parking spaces.
So what do you do?
Well, you just go and look for a space where the motorists already there haven’t been so selfish and parked their vehicles as though it’s a car park for one – them.
OK, so it’s just another first world problem, but how many of these do we have to put up with?
On the road alone we have those arrogant motorists who drive along the breakdown lane during peak hour.
It’s almost as though their lives are so much more important than the rest of us that they can’t just sit in a traffic jam with us.
It’s no wonder road rage incidents seem to be on the rise these days.
And don’t get me started on litterbugs, those fellow humans who seem to think the planet is their personal rubbish bin.
The thing that gets my goat is that all these things can be avoided if the people responsible can be prepared to be a little patient.
I mean, parking your car straight and sort of in the centre of the space you’ve chosen to park in.
Gosh, how hard is that?
Do these people realise that the more considerate we are of each other the better off we would all be?
Obviously not, because the minute you leave your home the evidence of selfish acts are everywhere.
From the imbecile who’s tailgating so close you can smell their aftershave lotion to the brown Maccas paper bags chucked out the window after the food was consumed.
C’mon, it’s not that hard to do the right thing, is it?
