Rant: Why parking lot etiquette matters

Driving a 1998 Subaru wagon with 205 thousand miles on it doesn’t put me in a hurry to get anywhere.  I find keeping a lackadaisical throttle foot to be an effective survival technique designed to milk every remaining mile out my noble Japanese steed.   It’s also indicative of my thrift-artist financial situation, which as it stands requires I shop religiously at Costco as if it were a giant welfare box store.

If I need groceries, I go to Costco.  If I need a shirt, I go to Costco.  If I need tires, I go to Discount Tire; Costco’s nitrogen-filled tires scare me.  But that doesn’t affect my general complacency when tooling around a Costco parking lot to find a vacant space, nor does it negate my outrage at the affront to my dignity that took place there recently.
