Please lower your parking space consumption

I was walking through a parking lot the other day, and I noticed a flyer on the windshield of a car. It caught my eye because it was orange. But then it occurred to me that none of the other cars had flyers, which made me curious. Curious enough to take a closer look.

As you can guess from reading it yourself, this particular vehicle was committing the rude act of hogging more than one parking space. In fact, I had been irritated by this very car when I was searching for a space. Maybe that's part of the reason that I loved the flyer. Mostly, though, I just liked the idea that the insensitive parker was being called out. 

I imagined this parking crusader, driving around with a pile of orange flyers, doling them out as needed, making the case for a more decent worldone in which people take an extra 30 seconds to reverse, straighten out, and occupy just ONE parking space. 

For the sole reason that it's the right thing to do.
