So tonight, exhausted, I took the kids to dinner on our way back from <large city> near me. I can't eat there, but as I wasn't hungry, I thought it would be a nice treat for them. All was great, and we left and loaded up the car. Now, remember how I said I was exhausted? This is important. It's also made worse by the fact that I have drive a small car and have a kid in a wheelchair. By the time I was ready to back out of my space, I was NOT in any kind of tolerant mood. Normally I'm a pretty nice person. Today was an exception.

So, we get loaded up, I turn the car on, jam it into reverse and roll backwards just enough to see past the SUV parked next to me. Of course, some other SUV is driving up the lane, so I stop and wait. for her to pass. Well, she didn't pass. She just stopped right behind me. I thought maybe there was traffic (remember, I park in handicapped spots, so they're right up front). I wait a few seconds and she still hasn't moved. I wait some more and watch the non-existent traffic. Remember, my car is in reverse this whole time, so my reverse lights should be clearly visible. I give it another minute, but notice the driver is on the phone, chatting away, not paying any attention, and making no moves to get out of the way. So hit my horn just for a small toot, hoping to grab her attention. No such luck.

So, I get out of my car and walk up to her and tell her I'm trying to back out and could she please move so I could do so. Well, you would have thought I'd just asked her to behead her grandmother. She starts yelling at me, calling me all sorts of ugly names, and telling me that she'll move whenever she fucking wants to move cause she has a right to be in the parking lot just like I do and I don't even know what else because I just tuned her out and said "look lady, I just want to go home."

The commotion caused a nearby cop to take notice. Sweet Justice. Well, he tells her she needs to move along or he'd ticket her for obstructing traffic, and she proceeds to go off on him, telling him she had a right to be in this parking lot and she was waiting to pick somebody up and he couldn't kick her out and other such nonsense. He informed her that yes, she did have a right to be in the parking lot, but she needed to pull her vehicle in a marked spot or he'd ticket her and have her towed if she refused to move. SWEET! Have I mentioned I love small town cops? The woman finally moved, screaming at somebody on the other end of the phone about the injustice done to her by being forced to move.

I hope she gets blocked in by a semi-truck when she has diarrhea.

She already has diarrhea of the mouth, so all we need is a semi-truck. Is wolfie perhaps nearby?

I'm somewhat surprised the cop didn't ticket her for her big mouth and refusal to move at first...

Well, he is a small town cop. I'm sure his goal was just to defuse and get her going. I like the cops here because they tend to get involved in minor things, but on the other hand, they don't tend to issue tickets all that quickly.

She was probably complaining to her friend that Da Man(tm) is once again ruining her life.

I can only imagine the flip-out-fest that would have ensued if she'd been the one blocked in, even if only for a second....

I thought a lot of your stories were about witnessing egos that fail to acknowledge the rights of other (e.g., mathnerd's right to leave that parking lot).

Exactly. If the roles were reversed, she'd have likely gone totally ape-shit.

Of course she would have. She's the only who has any right to that parking lot.

I believe Mathnerd is in the southern U.S. - the carrier I drive for deals mainly with the northeast and midwest.
