Does Anyone Notice Obvious Lines?

There are people in the world who don’t have much concern for other people. We see them all the time. The driver of this truck may not have noticed the overlap of a line that is obvious to everyone else. But we can look at it and immediately recognize behavior that is either thoughtless or obnoxious.

This driver may have just felt that he “needed additional property” to make his situation better. Maybe he felt that both sides of the line were his “right”. Maybe he felt that he had always gone over the line, and it’s too late to think about whether it’s appropriate or not. Maybe he just felt that those two parking spaces go together well. Maybe he remembered that his great grandfather always parked that way, and so that’s just the way it is.


But for anyone else looking at it, it’s the wrong thing to do. When you see obvious lines, the best behavior would be to respect them.

"people in downtown tucker, or pittsburgh, or anywhere near the gwinnett border have never thought of northlake as part of their community." What? I live in Wembley Forest and most certainly do consider Northlake part of my community. Your opinion is just that - yours. Don't pretend to speak for groups of people you don't know Newsy.

Have a heart people. Maybe this WAS the great grandfather and he did the best he could.

My husband and I came across a vehicle parked within two spaces and thought who does he think he is? On a closer inspection there was a sticker on the window of his van that explained why he needed more room. He was handicapped and needed the extra room in order to get his wheelchair out of the van and the handicap spaces were all take. We just assumed he was being a jerk. You never know what the other persons story may be. We just assumed the worst. :(
