Parking Lot Etiquette…

There are four basic things you need to know, when navigating a parking lot…

1) Always Drive Slow

2) Always Be Prepared To Stop

3) There Is No “Right Of Way”, Only Critical Parking Lot Courtesy

4) The Only Thing Resembling “Right Of Way”, Is Understanding That If Someone Is Already Moving Into, Or Occupying a Space, And Your Path Goes Through That Space, You Either Choose Another Path or Come To a Stop, Allowing Them to Complete Their Movement and Be On Their Way, After Which You Continue On Your Path

I had the displeasure of encountering a young female today, who does not follow parking lot etiquette…She damn near caused a fender bender with me, cutting me off while I was backing out of my parking space…Honked her horn, causing a scene…and gave me a stink eye while doing all of this…

…I guess the five seconds of her life it would have taken, to refrain from cutting me off, was just too much for her to handle…

…fucking insane idiot…

What really gets me…is that I literally did everything right…I carefully looked in both directions…nobody was coming from either direction…I was mindfully backing out, watching where I was heading in the back window [mostly because school kids are prone to cross the parking lot, right where I was backing into]…I presume she simply whipped in from main street, because she was “right there, right now”, out of nowhere, deciding that she “just had to drive straight through, without stopping”, not a care for the fact that I was presently in this space…

…The same consideration cannot be said for her, as there was literally nothing obstructing her view of me as she approached…She either decided that she was just going to barge through, or she wasn’t paying any attention…because there were no vehicles around me…I was completely out in the open…and it was she who was approaching, while I was clearly backing out of my space.

I hate driving…I don’t even like owning a vehicle, and all the costs and pain in the ass of it all…I’m forced to, because it’s a necessity where I live just to survive….

…And I hate driving mostly because of inconsiderate assholes like that.

That she had the gall to glare at me, while doing it…

…Some people should never be allowed to drive…and that girl is one of them.

You know…had the shoe been on the other foot, and I was pulling into the parking lot…absolutely none of this would have even happened…There is no question at all, that I would have come to a stop and graciously allowed her to back out and pull away…No nastiness would have ever come out of me, over this…It’s a fucking parking lot, after all…These types of common sense navigation are absolutely typical here…

…It says everything about the difference between me and her, that I would stop and allow things to peacefully flow without being an asshole about it…but she clearly would not.

I hate aggressive drivers…There is just no reason for them to be doing this shit.
