Target parking lot ettiquette 101

April writing...

People annoy me. Call me irritable today...who knows. But this was uncalled for Old Man!

So I am in the Target parking lot...(see Figure 1) I am waiting patiently for a spot I see opening up...right in front of the doors...AWESOME!

(Figure 1)

As the car leaving the spot is about to drive away I notice another care coming from the other direction...I don't really think anything of it...because I am sitting here with my blinker on...surely he can see that. Plus I was here first...he is still driving to get to the spot! (See Figure 2)

(Figure 2)

Oh but here in Figure 3...I see the old man...as I got to turn into my spot. I am pulling in only as fast as I can...as I needed to wait for the person who just pulled out to clear out of the way.
(Figure 3)

As you can see in Figure 4...old man cuts me off...clearly as I am turning for my spot...and takes it. I threw my hands up...and had a mini hissy fit. *Mind you, as you can't see with this particular picture...in real life...there were other spots available...I was just floored!
(Figure 4)

In Figure 5 I slowly drive passed Old-spot-stealing-man eyeballin' him like there is NO tomorrow with my blinker still on! Not that he cared.
(Figure 5)


Some people.
Now...don't judge me. I say old man, because he was an older gentlemen...he was by no means some decrepit old man with a walker...he was pretty spry...as shown in the above figures by his driving!
Still...for being older and more experienced...he should know a little driving etiquette. I ended up parking across from him on the other lane...when I walked by...the little devil on my shoulder wanted me to key his car....the angel of course talked me out of it quickly stating that there very well could be parking lot cameras...and I would be just the fool to get caught!
So I walked on and cooled down (thanks to the cold, frigid wind) and enjoyed the rest of my trip through Target.
Man. And it's only Monday.
"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum and they charged all the people a dollar and a half to see them. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you you've got till it's gone? They've paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Dude! I would have totally said something. I mean clearly you were preparing to pull into that spot. That's just wrong on so many levels...I'm getting peeved myself and I didn't even go through that.
