Rude is a four letter word.....

People are truly crazy this time of year. This is supposed to be the season of caring.......HA!

I had to take my granddaughter to school yesterday. OMG........my daughter did not warn me about the MESS in the parking lot. No parking spots to be found unless they are nearly a block away. If you're LUCKY, you may snag one just as someone else is leaving. I figured I would try for that.

I was sitting there with my turn signal on, waiting for this guy who left the building and entered his vehicle. He was taking his time, obviously. Just as his brake lights came on, this WENCH pulled into the lot from the opposite way and also saw the brake lights, stopped and sat there with HER turn signal on. WHAT? I'M CHOPPED LIVER? She can't see me sitting there? Instantly......my blood pressure went up 150 points. Amazing how fast something like this can make you FURIOUS. His back-up lights go on........she's still sitting there. I am fuming. The only thing that saved me was that he had to pull out and come my way because there is no exit the other way and she actually had to BACK UP in order for him to get out. As he backed out, I immediately whipped into the spot he had vacated.

I was happy it turned out like it did because it was justice. I HAD been waiting for a while .......way before she even entered the lot. What I have a hard time believing is that she actually was going to try and steal that spot from me. She had young children in her vehicle too.......the same as me. What kind of behavior was she promoting to her children? SHAME on her. Even though it turned out in my favor, I'm still mad over it. Peace on earth........good will toward men. I guess no one listens or comprehends that anymore.

Kind of makes me think of the lady who has the "Honk if you Love Jesus" bumpersticker...and when you honk she flips you off.

Aren't you glad you are all done shopping?!

I had to laugh at this story, and at the comment above. You are right, this IS supposed to be the season of caring...

I try not to let it get to me, either. Yea, right.

Have a good, CALM day. lol

Lady, you know I am your sister in the trenches. I know JUST what you mean about feeling your blood pressure soaring. I do not know what prompts that kind of behavior, but there really is no excuse, I don't care how busy or stressed out they are.

I'm doing deep breathing with you.

That reminds me of the scene in "Fried Green Tomatoes" when Kathy Bates is waiting to pull into a slot and a couple of young women in a small car pull in before she can, and she thinks about it a few seconds, and starts ramming their car. I love that movie!

I experienced a similar situation many, many years ago. I was waiting for a car to pull out, but he backed out in front of me and the other car whipped in and got the parking spot. I probably wouldn't remember that experience except that my daughters (now in their 40s) bring it up in conversation occasionally as "the first time we ever heard Mom say the F-word."
