Dear Shreveport: If You’re Not Getting Gas, Don’t Park at Pumps
Finally, a local problem we can actually do something about without drama and/or legislation.
For the life of me, I can't understand why this is so common. Every gas station on the planet has two things... Parking spots and gas pumps. The two are certainly not one in the same. Yet, at least 10 times in three days, I have pulled up to this problem.
TEN TIMES IN THREE DAYS. I have certainly been getting unlucky, but it's just so wild to me that it's so frequent. I don't think I've ever parked at a pump with no intentions of getting gas. There's literally always a parking spot open, I don't see the purpose of parking at a pump when there are closer spaces available.
Shreveporters driving into a gas station... Pulling right up to a pump... Parking and going inside.... Coming out with a bag of Cheetos and a scratch off..... Getting back in their car and driving away.
This absolutely drives me WILD! In fact, it might be my biggest pet peeve of all time. Sure, I'm probably just saying that since I've been behind this person so many times lately, but still, it is beyond aggravating.
Shreveport, I beg of you, don't be a jerk, and only park at pumps if you plan on getting gas.
