You mean I’m supposed to walk?
So there’s stuff everywhere about the rise of obesity in America. The reasons are obvious. Video games, TV, and the like have seriously cut down on the physical activities of America in general. But those are small problems. A lot of Americans are just plain lazy. I see signs of it every time I go to the grocery store. Some moron will sit in his or her car and wait for someone to pull out of their parking space when there is a completely open space (or ten) 30 feet further up the lot. But that would mean walking an extra 30 feet. It’s enough for me to declare justifiable homicide.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you’ve seen Wall-E, then you know what the future has in store. I don’t think it’s that implausible. Not to mention all these drugs you see advertised for you to lose weight with “minimal effort”. Listen people, you have to work for it. Plain and simple. Anyway, here are several Americans totally caught in their attempt to do as little work as possible.
I’m going to take the escalator
I guarantee that if you stood by this contraption for a while, there would be more people who get on this ridiculous escalator than take the stairs by a margin of 3 to 1. Pathetic. In fact, it would probably look something like this…
I see this scene every time I go to the stadium for a game. People will wait two minutes to get on an crammed escalator when it would take them half the time to walk up the empty ramp.
It’s good enough for government work
It probably took more energy to figure out how to paint around the stick than it would have if they would have simply moved the stick. These are your tax dollars at work. And don’t forget about the totally hard-working, non-lazy U.S. Postal Service.
Seriously dude? You would have had to take two whole steps.
Well, at least they’re outside
I don’t even know where to go with this one. I guess I could say that not only are they being lazy, but they’re doubling their carbon footprint. Of course, if I told these two that they needed to be more green, they would paint each other and call it a day.
Wouldn’t this be easier with a Baby Björn?
This just doesn’t look like it’s safe for the baby. This is pretty bad, but it’s only the second worst example of laziness I could find. It gets worse, because the winner is…
I bet they don’t even pick up the poop
Good Lord. This person needs to seriously consider switching to a cat. They would save a bunch of gas money if they just bought a treadmill and threw the dog on it. Hell, they even make treadmills especially for dogs. You think I’m joking?
C’mon people! It really doesn’t take that much energy to walk. You’ve been doing it your whole life. OK, I think I’m done now. But not really, because tomorrow my rant will center on another peeve of mine concerning the general public. What can I say? I’m opinionated. Sue me.
