Lowe's Foods, Reynolda Manor Shopping Center
What I didn't know was that one fire truck parked outside the front door of a grocery could cause sheer mayhem. Sincerely, multiple drivers acted like there were no other options but to drive that particular way BUT OH NO NOW I AM BLOCKED, looking about helplessly, throwing their hands up off the wheel in gestures of exasperation, seemingly incapable of, say, Going Another Way. One woman pushing a shopping cart stood and waited a few minutes, I guess for the fire truck to move, before pointedly stomping around it, throwing looks over her shoulder at the lone firefighter left in the truck.
So odd. So, so odd.
