I was in a crappy-with-a-capital-Y mood on Saturday. I have no reason for it, I just was. I got out of the house for a bit sans family because I thought 1) it would help my mood to have a little “me” time and 2) I figured I could kick my own ass at the gym if retail therapy didn’t help.
I went by Garden ridge for some planters and when I pulled into their busy parking lot, a Enterprise rental van was cutting through all parking lanes in a rather dangerous manner. I, being the passive-aggressive driver that I can be, did not even slow down a bit. I thought, “go ahead, hit me!” and kept my pace up the parking lot lane. As she looked right at me, waved her arm at me, not slowing down even a little, cutting through parked cars and across lanes, risking people’s vehicles and safety…I laid on the horn and continued right for her.
At that moment, I truly wished that money was no object for us because I would have broad-sided her.
So, she saw myself and two other cars driving where we had the RIGHT OF WAY and proceeded without caution. I was pissed anyway so this really bothered me. I nearly took a parking spot near the entrance to the store but I knew it would burn a hole through me if I didn’t say something to her.
I circled around and over a couple of aisles where she had parked and pulled up next to her with my window down and ever-so-rudely asked her, “Do you think the fucking rules don’t apply to you?!?” and drove away flipping her the bird.
Now, I freaked her out a bit by pulling up next to her, but by no means do I believe that my action, or in this case REaction, has changed this woman into a more considerate, safe driver…I’m not kidding myself. But it did make me feel better instead of holding it in for it to fester into something ripe and nasty.
I also had a few revelations this weekend, including:
- I think there is barbecue sauce on my ceiling.
- I really hate my chosen wordpress theme.
- Only one of my kids toenails ever grows. Just one.
- Bananas make my kid poop like grown up.
That is about it.
Oh, and I started a new craft project this weekend but I can’t tell you what it is…or I’ll have to kill you.
