You people OBVIOUSLY don't understand where I'm coming from. I'm just saying, be polite, don't let your shopping carts stand where the wind can blow them into other cars, use turn signals to let someone behind, or coming towards you know when you want to turn. It's Obvious that all the posters on here are perfect, so why am I even letting myself vent to ones who I thought would support my initial comment. If we all were a little more sympathetic to others this world would be a better place

This sense of entitlement baffles me.

But, you mentioned it often enough after the OP.

Larina - welcome to TOTV. I sympathize with you and think when people do that it stinks; however, you are beating your head against the wall on this one. Stay tuned and you'll figure it out.

I have lived here since 2005, I know what to expect....it's just getting worse and worse

I don't mind a 30 minute wait at a restaurant, as I said, you don't get my original post.

I'm sorry this humiliating event happened to you and diminished you in the eyes of the person who rushed in to take your parking spot. I'm also sorry that after you came here to discuss this you were judged, corrected, and put down instead of being told, hey. We're here for you. Bad things happen to good people and we hope your day got better.

I would have thought a woman took the spot. If it was a man he must have been commanded by his wife to pick something up there. Can't imagine a man going to Tuesday A.M. on his own...or maybe it was the Dollar Store.

A parking spot is not worth getting shot or stabbed by some psycho in a car.

Consider them a moron and move on.

It doesn't sound like Larina wanted to do anything more than vent and maybe get some sympathy. I know I get royally ticked off if someone steals my spot. I always wish I could be like Evelyn in Fried Green Tomatoes and just ram the crap out of the parking spot thief (we all have our little mean fantasies, right?). So, here is another person offering Larina some sincere sympathy. The thief was rude and inconsiderate. Don't let him spoil more than a few minutes of such a beautiful day.
