Ok, time to expound on a pet peeve. I see this all the time at the Kroger on Poplar and Highland:
What the helllllll? Why do people insist on placing bike racks like this? There are two sides, ya know. I guess it could be worse, they could have put it right next to the building so the other side wasn't just blocking a sidewalk, but completely inaccessible.
...oh wait...what's that in the background?
'Nuf bitching. At least there IS a bike rack. But still, brains. Use 'em.
