    Backwards Driving, Loopy Logic

    | Vancouver Island, BC, Canada | Extra Stupid

    (I work in a store with a donut-shaped, one-way parking lot.)

    Customer: “Your parking lot is way too dangerous! I was trying to go for a spot and someone came the other way. There was no space to get around each other! What if we crashed?”

    Me: “Which way did you go when you entered the lot? Straight or to the right?”

    Customer: “I went straight, towards the doors! What does that matter?”

    Me: “Well, everyone is supposed to go one way in the parking lot to avoid that kind of situation.”

    Customer: “Then that idiot was going the wrong way! Someone should be out there monitoring the lot!”

    Me: “Actually, ma’am, you’re supposed to turn right when you enter the parking lot. Everyone moves in a counter-clockwise direction.”

    Customer: “And I’m supposed to just know that? The road should be marked!”

    Me: “It is, ma’am.”

    Customer: “It certainly is not!”

    (I lead the customer to a window overlooking the lot and the customer sees enormous white arrows painted the entire way through, showing which way to go.)

    Customer: “What, you expect me to be looking at the road when I drive!?”
