Have you ever noticed how some people do not feel as if they have fully parked until they dock to something? It’s as if everyone is under some delusion that they are driving a boat and not a car. Most peculiar.
I swear I can’t go anywhere in town it seems without witnessing someone scrape the front of their car and bounce off one those concrete stops found in parking lots. It must give them a sense of completion… “I have arrived!”
It’s really odd.
Well, I had a similar problem here at the Madison House. Visitors to our home, or delivery drivers dropping off a package, would drive up past the end of the gravel driveway, nearly all the way up to the porch, as if it we were some kind of drive-through place of business.
What is wrong with people? Is this the result of excess fast food consumption? or perhaps excess pharmaceutical usage?
So, I planted shrubs and trees and they would try to dock to them! … sometimes running them over! The poor things.
Then, I put up a little picket fence and prayed that folks would stop short of hitting it. I put pointy little spikes on top of each picket to signal danger ahead.
Maybe… they should put picket fences in parking lots?
