22 Jun 11 . Tuesday morning, while parked for less than a minute at a local (chain) grocery store an individual walked past our vehicle and slammed the open door shut with a sarcastic comment about closing it for us. A rather rude approach to a group of visitors/strangers, to say nothing of mishandling another's personal property. As I was thinking about what would prompt such behavior, I came across this image taken at my cousin's home early last fall. As we were about to sit for dinner, we observed this vessel running very close to the shoreline in front of his home. A few minuter the skipper simply beached his vessel on my cousin's property, put down a ladder, and a crewman walked across his property to go fetch some beer at the corner grocery store. No permission was requested, no apology provided, and certainly no thank you was forth coming. The absolute and total rudeness of such behavior, to say nothing of running a vessel while consuming alcohol was,/still is, simply over the pale. Likewise the slamming of a vehicle door belonging to another. One begins to wonder what has happened to common courtesy in our society, and this in a country setting where such behavior is truly not the accepted. Perhaps it is an example of the trickle down theory. ISO 200; 1/320 sec @ f / 8.
