Let me first state that I haven't shopped at a Walmart in years as a matter of principal. OK, that said, it holds the only charging station in town. Yep, not even the public library nor city hall is on board yet. And from my experience at Walmart, it may remain so. So here's the situation. The town is 15 miles away, so I planned my errands around the Walmart pit stop which included 3 other stops within walking distance thinking I would get some EV miles on the return trip. Trouble is, the charge station at Walmart is up front and the EV only signs completely ignored. I parked close by, went in to register my displeasure at seeing non-EV cars occupying the spaces. Got the "not that again" look from the manager who asked for license plate numbers. By the time I got back out, a space had opened up. I quickly get in the car to move, but there is a LARGE suv positioned to grab it. I roll down my window to ask, "Are you going to plug in?" knowing of course she can't. Without an apology or "oops", she diverts the conversation to asking who pays for the electricity. Part 2 (yes, there is a question at the end of this, just wanting to vent) I back in but the station for some reason is not on line. Just about then another EV parking space opens up. Once again I quickly pull forward to get in that space, but a vintage Detroit BIG engine is eyeing the spot. Once again I roll down the window, "Are you going to plug in?" "Oh, I'm just going to be here a short time" comes the answer. So these spaces have become short term parking like at the airport. The store personnel are at a lose and completely annoyed by the whole situation. Shoppers may view the upfront EV spaces as "privilege" undeserved. This is a small town in a very conservation county in Oregon. Amazing the various large SUV's that occupy those spaces, not even pretending to be environmentally conscious and seeming to thumb their noses at any attempts at change. So finally, the question: Have you experienced this and do you know anything the establishment did that helped change things around? Or are we going to have to be campaigners, effecting change, one space at a time? If so, I'm going to have to add some extra time to my errand run.
