Parking Karma - How NOT to park at Costco


Yesterday I tootled out to local Costco and navigated the parking lot of suicidal moto doom to go to the gas bar.  After circling the lot a few times I finally found a 'real' spot and happily parked Scarlett & wandered through Costco looking for nibblies.  Costco has set up temporary cart storage spots because of the garden centre being put up in the usual cart storage area. A motorcyclist decided one of these areas would be ideal rock star moto parking. The cart return fellow was happily filling up the the cart storage doing his job and I guess decided it was time to make a point about where not to park.  So I sat back and waited until the errant parker to returned to his bike and I have to say it was pretty funny, he had a look of disbelief and consternation on his face as he unburied his bike.  The cart fellow had a wicked grin on his face as he watched the unblocking process.

Oh, that is blasted funny.

I don't know how you feel about it, Dar, but I do get a bit peeved when other riders don't follow the rules, whether on roads, or in lots: I'm afraid they give all of us bad names.

(Speed limits don't count as rules, do they?)

Dar said...

Ry, I feel the same, some riders think they are entitled to do whatever they want, park where they want, ride on the shoulder and speed. Unfortunately they do reflect on the rest of us.

More power to the lot attendant. I bet he was giggling the whole time while doing this.

I love that you hung around to see his reaction.

Dar said...

Kathy, I had to see, because it was actually pretty funny and I think he will never park in the area marked cart storage again.
