Default LOL Screw Hybrids

So I went to Best Buy tonight to get a car charger for my phone and when I pulled up I saw this sign:


What did I do about it?


LOL! To the right of me was a King Ranch F-250 and on the other side a Jeep Cherokee.

ha i hate those stupid signs. they have hybrid parking only at fresh and easy. i dont shop their because i hate the store. but if i did id park in those stupid spots. they cant give you a ticket or anything because its not government regulated. stupid hippies. if they cared that much shouldnt they ride a bike instead of drive.

Oh and just in case you didn't follow, that parking space is the hybrid parking space.

Does it actually say anything about hybrid only? One could make the argument that our trucks are "fuel efficient" because they use fuel as a more efficient means for towing and hauling much more weight/cargo (thus more efficient) than most cars. Not the best of arguments but hey just thinking outside the box.

I just thought it was hilarious. I've seen people post pictures of these signs before but this was the first time I've seen one in person. I just had to make the best out of the situation. LOL I wish I would have had my ratchet set that's normally always in my truck. I would've loved to had one of those signs to hang in the shop.

If the sign said "Hybrid" only, then the store could have the truck towed at your expense. No police or ticket required. Private property, unauthorized parking, bye bye. But that sign "Fuel Efficient Vehicles" only sign is too open to interpretation and they'd lose that battle in court.

Not to be ****y or anything but it doesn't really matter to me if they know it's a Hybrid or not. Besides, the closest parking space besides the Hybrid ones was a long ways away. Not like that matters, I just wanted to park in the fuel efficient area LOL

Which, once again, reminds me how much I'd like to find someone to design/build a badge for my truck -- it'd look just like the Ford hybrid logo, but there'd be a brontosaurus nibbling on the leaf.

I don't know if they have one (or more) of those "fuel efficient" signs at our local Best Buy or not, but if they do, I'll make it a point to park in that spot every time I go there, and dare them to ticket/tow my truck.

I think there was like 4 or 5 of those signs/parking spaces there.
