Don't mess with grumpy pregnant women

Yesterday an incident really pissed me off. And since I have nothing else to share right now, you get to hear about it.

After work, I took my car to the tire place because the rear drivers side was quite low. Apparently other people had a similar idea because the place was slammed with business and the parking lot was nearly full. There was one spot open. But of course the person parked next to the driver's side had parked like an idiot. They had their big 'ol pimped out Escalade parked 3 feet away from the line on their driver's side and over the line on my side. So I park as best I can, and then slightly hit their car with my door as I attempt to squeeze me and my eight month pregnant belly out the door. Well it turns out the gal who apparently can't park was in the car and rolled down her window. She, like her bedazzled SUV, was similarly overdone.

"Did you leave a mark?" she sneered.

My small retort was "No, but you are over the line on my side and it makes it hard for a pregnant woman to get out of her car".

What I really wanted to say was "No, but if I had you would have deserved it for parking like a complete a$$hole in an obviously busy parking lot. It's difficult enough to get my eight month pregnant belly out of a car in normal circumstances with out bitches like you making things more difficult".

I really wish I had said the remark that was in my head. It would have been so much more satisfying.

Yikes! I'll steer clear of you until Jillian comes out! LOL. I can't stand that BS.

Ooh! Ooh! Then you could have pissed her off with a smirk on your face and asked her if she needed anymore Scary Guy Pills (I sooo badly want to use that someday) lmao.
What is she going to do, hit a pregnant lady?

Oh I'm just pokin fun, I hope your peaceful today, just a few more weeks ;)

Wow. Did you leave a mark? I think I would have shrugged and said, "Maybe. Given my condition and your poor parking ability, protecting your car isn't real high on my list." You feel free to tell her off however you want!

Sunny said...

You tell her!! Escalade Smeshcalade. Who is she, Nelly?

I will say, though, that Seattle has the smallest parking spaces of any place I've ever lived. So many of them are marked "Compact Car" and almost always have an SUV or pick-up truck parked in them. Gotta love it.

I wish you had said it too. That would have been too cool. ;)

Hopefully she read thru the lines of your "nice" comment and took a step back! I've had the same problem recently with idiot parkers - and sometimes I bump their car with my door (no way around it with this belly). They just have to deal - they made their bed when they parked like morons!

I ofen wish I had said the thing in my head instead of what actually came out of my mouth.

The only problem is, the clever, witty comback in my mind usually doesn't occur until a solid 30 minutes after the incident.

I hate people like that. I purposely park a million miles from where I need to go in order to avoid such idiots. Inevitably, they still park RIGHT next to me. What I'd really like to do is super-glue their locks shut so they can't leave the parking lot, but I just curse them out under my breath and walk away.

YAY for 35 weeks! You're almost there!!! :)
