Sounds like you have had a number of incidents where people get out of car? What lead up to them getting out of the car? I know I am even more careful when my family is in the car.

I had a stop light incident a few years ago. I was returning from my mother's house (across town) early in the morning (3 am) and was stopped at a light behind a car fill with young men. They started getting out. I wasn't sure if I had chambered a round...so I held it up to the light and checked. I guess the young men saw it and jumped back in their car and ran the red light. Since I had worked that city for many years...I wasn't that upset. I was in a Big Locked Jeep Cherokee and knew if I really needed to I could get away even if it meant rolling over a couple of them. The way they jumped back in that car and ran...they were up to no good. I didn't aim it their way...but they saw I was not a easy mark. I continued home without further incident.

WOW, I'm glad things were more relaxed when I was young. Often ties we would be screwing with someones car to "get more out of her", like a Pinto with rusted out floors could ever be cool. After a few miles we would switch drivers to see if you could tell any difference or get a second opinion on if the brakes were really on the floor or not or what ever. So at the light it was like a Chinese fire drill with guys jumping out and running around the car to change spots. Sounds like that could be a dangerous activity in some areas.

should have shot a hole in the trunk lid and the bumper for him, he could then tie the trunk closed

this would have been the obvious answer if I was carrying a gun...

It was most definitely the stop right beind you stink-eye pounding the steering wheel and using sign language of sorts. I got the message he was sending. We both were circling looking for a parking place and I was closer. I pulled in from straight across the isle while he was still coming down the perpendicular isle and I was much closer. Ordinarily I would just be friendly and let someone else have a spot even if I were closer, but I had my wife and 2 young kids with me in a downpour. When Momma says there's a spot, I'm not arguing with her. I wouldn't have argued with him either...if he wanted to stand in the rain and raise sand I would have sat in the car and let him get wet. I didn't like being boxed in though. In my truck, I'm sure I could have rammed his car back far enough to get out. Not sure about the van.

Nothing happened, and you WERE aware of your surroundings.
Some people would never have noticed.
All's well that ends well.
