Redwitch great post! And yes I have the same fantasy.

When someone does something so inconsiderate I just shake my head and feel sorry for them.....what could have happened in their life for them to be mean, nasty, etc.....

I know how frustrating something like this can be. I accidently went the wrong way down the Walmart parking lot row and was called a Ho (the whole word) by a woman. How going the wrong way and that word correspond, I'm not sure but whatever. I would have expected "jerk" or something like that.

I find it so much easier to not let someone rent space in my head.

This upsetting episode will get worse if one dwells on it. You can't fix stupid or inconsiderate people. IMHO

Yup, agreed Gracie!
Really, it's not snowing and it's not raining so why not choose a parking spot over there...and walk a bit. It's sunny Florida, not -18 degrees out

I had the same happen to me. It is not just the villages it is the American way. There is little wonder that the rest of the world thinks American tourist in general are a bunch of jerks.

I can understand if this was a handicap spot. They are hard to come by.

Larina, relax a bit. BTW a blinking turn signal indicates you either intend to turn, or you forgot your signal was on. It is not an indication that a parking spot is yours. Did you get into Tuesday Morning? Sorry I responded, this thread is running on needlessly.

Listen, everyone, when you figure out how to rid the world of a-holes, you've got my vote for World Leader. Maybe we all need to cut back a little on the caffeine and take a couple of deep breaths.

Come on we know there are lots of a-holes around and the villages got there share. I find it good therapy to goggle and listen to the a-hole song on YouTube when I come cross one. Which is all most daily

I find that I see something rude about once a week, but I see kindness acts and friendly gestures 10 times a day.
