    I would have yanked him too but I would have found another parking space.

    Sadly, as my husband will attest to, I have no filter.

    Pulled into a grocery parking lot. (I honestly do NOT speed in lots!)

    Some barefoot, nasty trailer trash woman with an entire herd of kids with her yells at me "don't you see all these kids?!? Don't you know about speed limits?!? You need to slow down!"

    I look at her. Look at the 8 kids with her. "Don't you know about birth control?"

    Parked my car, went inside. Came out to a nice foot long key scratch in the rear quarter...

    My contribution for the day. Completely blocking the driving lane in a busy grocery store lot. There were maybe 2 or 3 notes on the windshield already. Kinda wish I would have had a turtle pic with me :laugh:

    @Cuffs Yep, have to be careful since people are so damn vindictive. Love the comment though, exactly something I'd have said. Would have had to go to a different store though for fear of what happened to you.

    I don't enjoy that parking lot. It gets pretty tight in there some times.

    That Suburban looks familiar too. Repeat offender?

    Kinda funny, but he dropped the car and blocked in a few other innocent parkers. Not cool.

    That's when you just pull the valve cores from all 4 tires, and leave them in a nice pile on the hood.

    Yep, that's the fly in the ointment. Shouldn't have f'd other folks in the process.

    Mom is quite a role model for her kids, children repeat what they hear and especially what they see. Sorry about your truck getting keyed.

    Maybe I'm lazy, but it seems like he exhausted too much time and effort, especially when there was an open spot not far at all.

    Pretty sure the point of that exercise wasn't about efficiency... ;)

    The other thing that crossed my mind was that he'd be liable for any damage caused to the vehicle. People's litigiousness would likely dissuade me from doing the same.

    Now a shopping cart and a 35" zip tie through a door handle or the grill however...

    As do I whenever possible
    meh. I'm not in to being destructive.
    Pretty sure it got towed though. As busy as that lot is it's a hazard and we were supposed to get snow last night. They may have had it towed in anticipation of not being in the way of the plows

    Probably a wise choice. Maybe Georgia is an exception, but here intentionally causing $500 or more in damage is a felony. Official Code of Georgia § 16-7-23 Surprisingly easy to hit that threshhold when you figure in labor costs to repair stuff.

    Does this count? Someone ditched/got stuck in the middle of the trail. Just enough room to squeeze by though
