Absolutely Terrifying – Is a Parking Space Worth This Much Anger?
I'm still shaken to the core about a recent experience I had while trying to park my car at a grocery store.
Listen, grocery shopping can be stressful. Especially when you go right after work - you just want to get in, buy your things, and go home. But that doesn't give someone the right to treat people in the disturbing way I was.
As I described above, I was on my way to the grocery store after a long day of work, and I was pretty irritable - I take full responsibility for that. The parking lot was insanely crowded, and I couldn't find a spot. As I was driving through a narrow lane to get through to the next aisle, a man started squeezing his way through the lane towards me.
Admittedly, this annoyed me even more. I was tired, I was hungry, I just wanted to get out of there! He expected me to move back so he could get through when I had no room. So I yelled and waved my arms saying there was nothing I could do.
Well, this upset him - he kept squeezing forward until he was in line with me and motioned me to roll down my window. Uh - HELL NO! I refused to lower my window for an angry stranger. Would you have? I don't think so.
Not rolling down my window upset him even more, because he began HITTING my window screaming at me to roll it down. I took out my phone and motioned I was going to call the cops, and somehow he managed to find the room to squeeze through and drove into the next parking spot.
At that point, I was too shaken to even shop there, so I left. What possesses a person to think they can physically attack their belongings like that? I'm a compassionate person, so I understand we're all moody and have our days, but this behavior is completely unacceptable.
I hope this man has learned his lesson.
