So I'm at Costco today picking up a few things, like the 20 litre Ketchup bottle since BBQ season is coming up.
Well in line, buddy beside me has a helmet in his buggy so being the personable and interesting guy that I am (), I strike up a conversation. He tells me he has a BMW, his wife just bought an F800ST and so on. Buddy is a white guy, 50-55 years old, full head of dark hair well on its way to grey, 5'10" or so, black full face helmet.
Once the ketchup is secured in my cart, along with the 200 count bag of buns, 55 lbs of smokies and the 24" diameter pie (for dessert, before bed snack, midnight snack and breakfast) I mosey my way out to the car. (Insert waddling, fat smiley here)
Lo and behold, there is BMW buddy walking up to his bike ....... parked in the handicapped spaces. At Costco in Langley those spaces have large gaps between them and the space next to them. A nicely painted area about 4-5 feet wide in order to enable that person the room to get their chairs, walkers, whatever in and out of the side doors of their vehicle.
This muttonhead had decided to park his nice blue BMW K1200S in that marked area between 2 handicapped spots ...... nicely done and able to screw at least 1 and possibly 2 people out of those places. And this was at 10 AM when there was no shortage of spaces in the lot.
Now maybe he wasn't aware of the reason for all those lines he parked on. Maybe he wasn't able to see the 25 sq ft blue handicapped paintings in the spaces. Maybe he didn't see the blue signs in front of his bike. Or maybe he is an ignorant bastard that didn't give a rat's ass and decided to play the odds that someone wouldn't show.
I would have been happy to go over and beak off, but my 12 Gallon tub of Fudgie Wudgie Butter Pecan Ripple with Chocolate Chips ice cream was starting to melt.
Anyway, the whole point of this rambling diatribe is to make sure all you fine BCSB folks (I know I'm preaching to the choir here)are aware that we need to give those spots the room they need.
End of rant.
