    Talking lady down in parking lot

    I was at the Kroger store. A lady was standing in a parking spot holding it for someone while a driver was trying to pull it. It was a nice spot in the shade. He was yelling at her out of the car window, then was getting ready to come out of the car. I told her as passing by, "People are crazy, better move, they shoot you over things like that nowadays." She decided to move.

    Personally I try to avoid dealing with people. People = problems.

    Good for you! It's just possible you saved her life & perhaps she'll give some serious thought to her behavior.

    That was truly a good deed and you told the absolute truth! The one thing I would change is to NOT say "shoot" because of all the controversy about guns lately. I would use the words "violently attack" in place of "shoot."

    People have been violently attacked in road and parking lot rage incidents with tire irons, baseball bats and many other potentially lethal weapons. Might as well include them as a category.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    I've seen people hold spots at large venues, sport events or busy hospitals but at kroger? There is probably another spot available 10 feet away.....

    I'm always entertained by those people who circle the parking lot 5 times just to get a space that 2 spots closer to the door. I've gone in, got what I needed and was leaving when one person finally found a spot that was close enough for their liking. You see it at Walmart all the time. I'm not talking about handicap people that's different, that I understand.

    Iíve seen that done at a local gym I used to go to. Iíd use the exercise bikes which looked out over the parking lot. It was not uncommon to see someone circle or wait to get a spot a couple places closer to the door. They would then come in and walk to indoor track.

    Then you have the person who parks at the far corner of the parking lot and parks diagonally across two or three parking spots for fear of getting a ding in their vehicle. That just tells me they can't afford that vehicle.

    I was kinda hoping you'd get her out of my spot.

    My dad purchased a new Caddylick one year and took me to the store in it. Parked in 3-4 slots. I advised him that he may get keyed. He never did it again.
