swimming upstream, continued
Anyway, the whole time we were there, a woman in a parked BMW carried on a conversation on her cell phone, while the car's engine was still running. Why would she keep the engine running in a parked car? Presumably to keep the air conditioning flowing. But here's the kicker: the car was a convertible, and the top was down. So, to recap: parked car, engine running, a/c on, no roof.
