I'm sure we've all witnessed things that others have done that left us wondering, "What were they thinking?" We may have even been guilty of such things from time to time, when we didn't even consider how our actions might effect someone else. The one that I am thinking of right now is not really an end-of-the-world event, but it happens often. I live across the street from an auctioneer, who regularly puts the stuff that doesn't sell at auction up for sale at his home. He's a great guy, so I wouldn't dream of saying or doing anything that could cause a rift. However, people stopping at his auction will frequently park their car right in front of our driveway, so that if we needed to get out, we wouldn't be able to. I'm thinking, "Who does that?" Even in an emergency, I wouldn't park in front of someone's driveway. These aren't kids, from whom we might expect thoughtlessness. These are adults, usually older than forty, yet it's not even a once-in-a-while thing. Fairly regularly, when he has stuff out on his lawn for sale, someone will block our driveway. Years ago, when I lived in Long Beach, California, someone parked in front of my garage, so that I couldn't get out in the morning, and I had to get to work. I recognized the car because I had seen him do so once before, and didn't say anything because I wasn't planning on going anywhere. Parking was a bitch in Long Beach, especially on street-sweeping days. Before I got a garage, I would sometimes have to park three blocks away from my home. He lived in one of the high-rises around the duplex I was in. But I needed to get to work so I knocked on his door. He finally answered, angry because I had gotten him up so early in the morning, and was rude the whole time, rather than apologetic. A few weeks later, when he had blocked my garage again, I called the police. The LBPD told me that the police weren't required for such things, and that I could just call a towing company. So I had him towed.
