Let’s Agree To Agree
The Barest of Things by Brett Barest
In last week’s edition of The Barest of Things, I presented what I felt was a logical, straightforward explanation about Colin Kaepernick’s employment status. My attempt to address the situation from a non-partisan, non-political perspective turned out to be much more controversial than I intended, as I received backlash and disagreement on both social media and personal messaging. Rather than resurrect the issue this week, I committed to addressing some issues that – I hope – we can all be on the same page on.
Fingers crossed, here it goes…
Seriously, someone took the time to design, purchase, and install multiple stations around the parking lot specifically for return of shopping carts. Some people, however, (and I hope I do not know a single one of them) are too lazy or self-entitled to use them. These people think it is perfectly ok to leave their carts free to roam the parking lot, potentially playing bumper cars with somebody else’s parked vehicles. Sometimes they go the extra mile to kick the front wheels on a nearby median, as if that is an acceptable solution to their “walk 20 feet” dilemma.
People that are this lazy or incapable of the most basic acts of common courtesy bring nothing to the table, if you ask me. If you cannot walk an empty cart the incredibly short distance it takes to place it in the proper location, you probably should not have gotten off the couch in the first place. Stay home and rot for all I care, as our parking lots, paint jobs, and lives of minimum wage earning bag boys are better off without you.
And don’t even get me started on the men (and women!) who think it is okay to urinate on public toilet seats. That’s just gross.
Argue with me about that, Internet. I dare you.
Puppies and kittens though. Freaking adorable across the board, am I right?
