Down with Corpulent America!

The next time you're at a big gas station with a little time on your hands, stand outside and watch how many sloths fill their tanks up at the pump, hop into their vehicles, and pull forward thirty feet to the parking stalls directly in front of the store to go in and pay. What laziness!

If the place is slamming, and there are other people waiting to get gas, it's an understandable courtesy. But in what I observed today, that was a non-factor.

This behavior is bad news for the economy, the environment, future healthcare costs, the life of the average car's transmission, and the reputation of consumerism in general.
