The lady was, indeed, an obnoxious ass but she had a point. Turn the bleeping noise maker off people, when it makes sense to do so. It's not like she's asking them to start it, run it for 2 minutes, then shut it off, and repeat that about 50 times (or until the battery dies).

I leave my diesel run when I go into a store just so it's nice and cool when I get back in. I do the opposite in the winter.
