So, we just wanted to pop into the mall to go to the post office, to pick up medications at the pharmacy and to get a few things for supper. Simple. But on arrival at the ramp I found that the ramp was blocked by someone who'd strapped their bike to it. Here take a look:
What gets me is that it is impossible NOT to see that the ramp was made inaccessible to any who need use it. It's clearly in the way. It's not inadvertently done, it's purposefully done.
What is this?
I don't know how to think about it.
Is it ignorance?
Is it prejudice?
Is it arrogance?
Don't tell me it's thoughtlessness because I don't accept that - it so obviously blocked the passageway that it had to have been done with a degree of 'knowing'.
Don't tell me that they thought they'd be just a moment - it was there when we went in, and we did all what we expected to do and where in line ups at each stop - we were there a while. It was there on the way out. And yes, we stood in line as soon as we got in to report the situation to the security folks.
I'd like your take on this ... what's happening here?
What does this picture mean to you?
Cause let me tell you it means something to me.
