The Lazy

I have just seen what might be the literal definition of lazy...
Looking out my living room window I have witnessed a man and his dog out for a walk...but it was downhill...WHILE DRIVING HIS SUV. I'm not kidding. He was driving along with a beautiful chocolate lab on a leash out the window of his gas guzzler.
I wish I could add he was smoking, just to put it over the top, but man- even the way it was, I cannot actually believe it...how hard is it to walk a dog?
I won't even get *into* how unsafe it is for the dog AND other drivers...I just honestly couldn't believe it. I was so stunned I didn't think to write down his plates to call it in for sheer wrongness...
I've seen people bike with a dog, but this?
I'm in actual awe and disgust of what I can only refer to as "the Lazy".

That give the 'classically' lazy (such as myself) a bad name.

I hope the dog learns to drive and runs the jerk over!

Ummm, perhaps he's crippled and can't walk, therefore it is his only option.... or not.
I've seen them do that with horses, believe it or not, when they are exercising racehorses. Hard on the pick-up truck though...

Maybe he doesn't have legs?

I'd think that, but the thing is, there IS a guy in our neighborhood in a wheelchair, and he regularly takes his german shephard for a walk/roll/pull ALL the time. He and his dog are in the best shape...I never thought of the whole no leg thing, or being handicapped because of him...it just seemed so wrong to me.

Actually, legs or no, it isn't much of an excuse. Unless he is a quad - but them he wouldn't be able to drive. As badly out of shape as I am, I would never resort to that. The man is lazy and clearly unconscious to the oil crisis, climate change, et al etc. I would have no problem saying that he is most likely a complete nob.

I've seen people around here driving their SUV and/or luxury vehicle to the end of their driveway to retrieve the mail instead of walking. I'm completely serious about this.
