Today a friend of mine gave change to a Car Guard who defiantly threw it on the ground claiming it wasn’t enough? What the heck is that? I’m confused here, because theoretically speaking, we don’t owe a Car Guard anything.
How do you feel about giving money to a Car Guard. Frankly, I give money to a Car Guard because I’m financially comfortable.
So I give change because perhaps, he may have helped me with my groceries, or showed me a parking, or just plain old lurked about. I’m sick to death of feeling guilty if I don’t give money to a car Guard that is doer en gone on the other side of the Car park chatting with the other car guards and then when he sees my reverse lights come on, rushes across the parking lot to receive his token of doing what? Bugger all, that’s what!
I’m generalizing, I know, because some are helpful, but in all honesty, 95% are NOT!
I’ll be able to find a parking on my own. I’ll be able to carry and pack my car on my own. You see, they do it in England, the States and other countries all the time.
So while I understand that being a Car Guard is in a sense being an entrepreneur, it’s actually not. It’s sitting or standing in a car park watching cars that have built-in alarms, and waiting for a hand out from someone who has worked their backside off for those few pennies. Pennies that are only handed over because of guilt at being financially independent and able to enjoy a certain standard of living.
I’d love to know how many families are subsidised from Car Guards. Maybe it’ll make me feel a little better….
