A few minutes ago, our man in Connecticut, Tom Williams posted the following on his Facebook wall:
had lunch at Whole Foods, which was fine, but what puzzled me was the guy who parked his Chrysler 300 in the “Fuel Efficient Car” parking spot.
Now I love a good $22 Whole Foods sandwich as much as the next guy and I can certainly see the humor of a 300 parked in a spot designated for a fuel efficient car. Where I’m a bit confused is the need for a Fuel Efficient Car area of the lot.
Are these spots for FEC’s located by the parking lot entrance furthest from the door to ensure drivers don’t waste fuel in an effort to travel towards an alfalfa laden mid day treat? Do they locate them between the handicap spots and the door so that smug Prius owners can give the finger to those who consume more black gold?
All of this got me thinking about some of the other special parking spots we have these days.
