Is Spacial Awareness a Thing of the Past? Some Texans Think So
Going out in public nowadays is always a gamble. You don’t know what type of people you’ll run into and how they might act.
While this usually isn’t a problem, as most people are respectful of those around them, all manners seem to go out the window in certain settings. I especially noticed this while grocery shopping the other day.
You could tell the store was going to be full the moment you pulled up to the parking lot. Hardly any spots were available, making it a long process of searching for any available spot. While this isn’t usually a tough task, the number of people walking in the middle of the road, driving the wrong way down the lane, or simply not paying attention to their surroundings was shocking.
I didn’t realize this at the time, but it was just a sample of how chaotic the inside of the store would be.
Far too many people had a complete lack of spacial awareness. They were leaving their carts all over the place, blocking entire aisles to stand there and catch up with the friend they ran into, rushing around corners and nearly ramming other people with their carts, and so much more.
It is hard for me to fathom being so oblivious and inconsiderate of those around you. It’s as simple as staying mindful, paying attention to your surroundings, and showing some amount of care for those around you.
A little bit of spacial awareness really goes a long way.
