I didn't realize it, but America is apparently suffering from an epidemic of line blindness.  What is line blindness ?  Literally the inability to see/recognize a line of people, or vehicles coupled with a feeling of self-importance that apparently enables a person to decide they are superior to everyone else allowing them to simply go to the head of the line, or simply ignore it.

7:05 - waiting for the Fairfax Connector bus.  One of about twenty people in line.   Car shows up just as the bus pulls in.  Young woman gets out of the car, looks at the line of people getting ready to get on the bus and simply ignores all of us and walks on to the bus.

7:40 - Ballston metro stop; people lining up to take the escalator out of the metro station.  Amazing to see how many people ignore the line and simply circle around to the front and butt in.

5:20 - Back at the parking lot.  Get in my car and pull into line to get out of the parking line.  I watch one person drive their SUV on to the grass in order to avoid the line.

C'mon people ...  are you that much better than the rest of us?
