Rant. Summers here down under. I'm sitting in a streetside cafe waiting for my lunch. Lady pulls up in a car space right in front of the cafe. I see she's talking on the phone, considerate of her to stop driving while doing so. But she leaves the engine running, this went on for my 30 min lunch, I left and she was still there. Mums at my kids school get to school pickup spots early and sit in parked car, engine running. I know it's a comfort thing to have the aircon running but jeesh, Would they do this if fuel was more expensive?
