Ethical Dilema #2: Driving Within a Parking Lot


Look, we try to be environmentally conscious here. Recently, we've been trying to ride our bike as much as possible, bring our own bags to the grocery store, and stop killing dolphins with spears.

However, sometimes we go shopping. We buy stuff. And because we're combining our trips, thereby saving overall gas consumption, we need to go to another store. Sometimes that store is across the street, other times it's in the same parking lot maybe 300 yards away. We'll use that as our barometer: 300 yards.

So, assuming you've got a bag or two and your destination is 300 yards away, is it ok or not to get in the car and drive those 300 yards knowing you could walk the distance? Or does that just make you a lazy, lazy person?

Do what Rev Billy says and stop shopping.

But if you are shopping, go ahead and drive the 300 yards - I mean, that's three football fields!

Completely depends on if you have the kids with you!

I voted yes, because I have done it in these stupid giant out door malls that we have in Texas. And who ever thought of that idea in a state that has weather over 100 degrees in the summer is sadistic. But yes, it makes you lazy.
