I get that a lot of people have a truck and don't make use of it very often. But I make use of it quite a lot, even while living in a crowded suburban neighborhood. So I wouldn't say that you really only need it if you're a "farmer or ranch hand."
On your last point, depending on the length of the truck, you may stick out less into the parking lot if you park tail-in (generally there's more overhang on the rear end compared to the front.) This makes it easier to get out of parking spots, and makes you less of a hazard to other people using the parking lot.
