How to Complain About Anything

In our local online paper, a reader was complaining about a parking lot at a new library. She was somehow outraged at the parking situation for . . . well, you can read her quote and find out for yourself.

“Has anyone else noticed the parking lot at the new library? There are NO parking spots reserved for expectant mothers, NO parking spots reserved for parents with small children, NO parking spots reserved for the elderly, three parking spots reserved for handicapped and 10 parking spots reserved right out front for … fuel efficient vehicles.
Whose idea was this?”

So according to this reader, parking lots are supposed to reserve spaces for expectant mothers, parents with small children, and the elderly, and she was shocked that there were none. However, we’ve never ever seen a parking lot that did reserve spaces for these kinds of things. They apparently exist, because the reader seemed pretty angry, but they are not everywhere. People cannot expect to have conveniences everywhere they look and be outraged when they are not there. We called this article “How to Complain About Anything” because there was nothing to complain about here, but this person found a way. The only thing I can agree with is that it is a little weird for there to be ten spots reserved for fuel efficient vehicles. That doesn’t make any sense to me at all.
