Space: The Final Frontier

At the risk of sounding anti-social….ah screw it, here it goes…

Has this ever happened to you? You go shopping at a store and when you go to park your car you see the parking lot is half empty. There is a group of cars parked in a bunch in one area of the lot and the rest of the parking lot is empty…and it’s a huge lot. So you figure, “I will park my car so it’s in the empty area away from the other cars.”  This will keep my car from being accidentally dinged or bumped into.

So when you come out of the store, lo and behold, what do you see? Out of this huge half empty parking lot where there’s plenty of room to park anywhere, and you parked in the empty area to purposely keep away from the other cars, someone has decided to park RIGHT NEXT TO YOU.

Or have you ever gone to the movies with a date and you enter the theater to find that it’s empty except for you and your date? You think, “Cool, we can pick the best seat in here and have a little privacy.” Then a lone person comes in by himself and out of all the seats in this Super-Sized empty theater. EMPTY. Guess where he decides to sit?: RIGHT NEXT TO YOU.

Mind you, these are real life situations that have actually happened. But the worse yet is when I went to the Atlanta Airport public bathroom. If you’ve ever been to the public bathrooms there you know that it is huge. I’m talking “hallway huge” and there is a long row of urinals and toilets.

So I go in to use one of the urinals and surprisingly the bathroom is empty except for me. It’s so quiet, you can hear a pin drop. That is until the Lone Guy comes in to use the bathroom too. And out of all the empty toilets, and rows of empty urinals in this ginormous EMPTY bathroom, which urinal does he decide to use? You guessed it, the one RIGHT NEXT TO ME.

And it seems the more you want some space, the more people come to take it away. You attract them like moths to a light bulb. Is it just me? Come on now, I’m not that special-  I’m short and I snore at night.

Is it too much to ask for privacy sometimes? Can’t a brother get some space? 🙂
