Any Day Now Lady!
Have you ever noticed that the drivers who abuse their car horns and get overly animated are the same ones who take their sweet time when backing out of a parking spaces? As if rebelling from the things they hate the most, they saunter to their cars, never making eye contact with the driver waiting for their space, fiddling with their keys as if admiring their newly manicured nails. When they finally get in their vehicle, they adjust and re-adjust the rearview mirror, tune the radio and smooth their hair or make-up. Then they back up slowly enough to piss you off before they speed off! Ugh!
Me waiting for a woman backing up at National Office Supply during the school supplies rush.
After exhibiting all of the above behavior, she opens her car door and looks at me. I've got my head propped on one arm and massaging an aching brow.
Woman shouting: Cannot!
Me thinking : Cannot what lady? You cannot estimate the space you have to make a friggin three point turn? I cannot have your parking space because your name is engraved on the concrete? We cannot be friends because I gave you a dirty look for taking so long and still not buckling up? "Cannot" what? I cannot understand you!!
