Complete Jackalope

Was at the grocery store a few minutes ago and look how this Jackalope parked! Taking up 10 spaces. The Bubba and Bubbette could have parked with the other trailers on the side of the store, same walking distance. I’m glad I’m finished shopping for awhile. I will stay home and ride my bikes because I am very disappointed in society. Humans can be such disgusting creatures. Security made them put on masks and they surprisingly didn’t go crazy but they tried to sneak in without a mask. Yes the parking lot is just for them forget about the safety of the elderly population. I should have stuck an apple in the exhaust pipe waited until they left to see their exhaust go boom.

Every state has it’s Jackalopes. I mean there is great parking for trailers at the store but this estúpido and estúpida had to park in the front. Shopping can be tense since you social distance and halfway being suffocated with those masks. They have the floor marked in the lines to keep distance etc etc but HEB is trying hard to accommodate the people during a pandemic. Sorry if we are all born with that crazy condition you know the one wear we need to eat Just downright inconsiderate and selfish. Just hit me the wrong way..

Wait a minute... now you say there are trailers parked along the side... is there room to get another trailer in an out over there? If not, this is exactly what I do... now bear in mind, I look for the most remote location in a lot in which to do this... and have still had mindless motorists park right in front of me. Or I have had mindless motorists pull in front of me as I was exiting a lot... with a tall 17 foot long trailer right behind me. It is as if this big giant box following me is invisible. I swear it must be... I have had people pull out of side streets right at me... while I am pulling my RV trailer. HELLO! Those darn things do not stop on a dime... and I have a light one, with trailer brakes. And don't even get me started about using my turn signals, well in advance of changing a lane, starting that lane change and then have mr mindless motorist decide to try to outrun me into that same lane... I mean WTF! (gotta tell you, driving cross country in the middle of COVID March was some kinda cool... no mindless motorists... just truckers that knew how to drive)

Now maybe this guy is a jackalope... but why is this posting in the COVID thread? is that sort of like parking in the wrong place?

Com'on Hondo. YOU can do better. (have another brew)

I parked it in Covid because if this guy with a backhoe can park in the wrong place. Then why can’t I park a thread in the wrong place?

Move along here...

I guess your reference to masks made it OK.

Seriously...Her dad was a science teacher who was big into animals. And she was no dummy. Even clerked for a PA Supreme Court Justice.

Now don’t get me started on the woman I knew in college who was surprised to learn that train locomotives don’t have steering wheels. “How do they stay on the tracks?”

Remember, we cyclists share the roads with "those people." Regular "rocket sturgeons" I tell ya.

The Covid content is the truck and trailer were using social distancing parking and should be applauded for doing so.

The closest I got to an Ivy League school was when I fell into poison ivy. Itched and had blisters for a week. But Jacaklopes are real and locomotives have steering wheels. And I had a cow that could literally jump over the moon
