A "why bother" kind of bike corral (if you can even call it that) . . .

Sad, little bike corral.
I've been meaning to stop for some time and photograph this really sad, pathetic little bike corral.  I almost feel sorry for it.  See how it mashed in on one side, making it not only totally inadequate for the job of keeping a bike secure, but utterly uncared for.  Why not just post a sign that says, "We don't give a damn about your effing bike."  I will mention now that it's sitting on the side of a sporting good store.  Kinda odd.  Where's the respect?

A lock.  Really?
But look!  Someone actually locked it to the building!  In kind of a half-ass manner, I will add.  I think I could cut cable in two with my nail clippers.  As if someone would even bother to take it!  For what?  I guess that one could sit it on the side of a desk and use it as a file caddy.

Kind of useless for secure bike parking, but I would love to have one of those (undamaged) in my garage.

That's the Charlie Brown Christmas tree of bike racks.

JRA! You are SO right! Maybe that's why I felt sorry for an inanimate object. It just needs someone to care about it. I AM Charlie Brown. . .

They orta be a-damn-shamed of themselves...and a sporting goods store at that! Shame on them,shame...=/

Steve: I pedaled past again today w/ the half intention of walking in and shaming them but then I knew that I'd later feel so proud of myself that I'd brag about it to my husband and he'd just give me that look that says "who is this crazy bitch?". So I just sucked in my breath and rode on past. I'm going to try it put it all out of my mind.

Charlie Brown Christmas tree of racks - hilarious! Do people lock their bikes in front of the store on a pole? Someday, when you are in a blissful mood, it wouldn't hurt to mention it to them.

There is not even a pole, Inspired! Had there been but a pole I could have locked up my bike and gone in and taken advantage of their big fall sale!
