Do you not realize that in almost all states PEDESTRIANS always have the right of way. just because you're driving in a straight line doesn't mean you can just plow through people who may be trying to get out of the elements or might be carrying something.
The fact that you may give up your right of way doesn't mean that's how everyone should look at it.
Furthermore, you're in a PARKING LOT, not a road. your head should be on a swivel trying to watch out for little kids and slow moving old people.

Well I'll give the other side...as a pedestrian I hardly ever see people in cars look both ways. Also from your op you state that you were in a parking lot...well buddy pedestrians have the right of way there...it seems your the entitled one. I get the whole common sense thing but in the situation you described it was you who should stop. Might not help that the concentration of dumbasses at walmart are astounding.
