He fumbled around a little before zooming his window down. I started to ask if he could pull a little forward so we could back out.. Before I could finish my sentance, he says all huff and puffy, "I am calling the POLICE! Someone took my parking spot! I'm calling!"
Whaaat?! Who calls the cops when someone takes your spot!? Not to mention, refusing to let any car move along around him until justice is served?? Is this guy for real? We tried backing out a little further, when Tattle-tale finally moved forward 3 inches. Good grief. Thank goodness we made it out of there before Angry Man showed up to start beating on my window.
All of this parking-lot business reminded me of a little book Justin and I found (and bought) at Urban Outfitters. How many times have you come out to your car, and found some idiot who parked so close to you that you can't even get inside the door?? Or how about the half-wits that take up two parking spots, so you can't find anywhere to park? I guess it's happened more than a billion times to us, so finding this little faux-parking ticket book was like a miniature jackpot. They are perfect to tear out and leave on an idiot's windshield when necessary. The company that makes them - Shinbox Print - have some other really cool little things to check out.
I know we're not the only victims of bad park-jobs, because some people have even dedicated their blogs and sites to making fun of them! Pretty funny!
