Too many people in the world, and most especially on the road, that seem to feel that what they want is all that's important! Acting like they are the only ppl on the planet with something important to do!

(regardless of my creeputation around here,..) Out in the analog world, I try treat people with a basic level of courtesy as a matter of simple respect and general SOP. Right up until they say or do something that shows me they are selfish, self absorbed, booger eating retards. Then, all bets are off!

Hope your recovery is coming along well and you can ditch the crutches soon!
Shockingly! This woman was actually of average height and build.

What drove me nuts, apart from the fact that she got super snarky towards me about how shitty her park job was that she actually ended up having to move into one of the spots close to the back of the lot that she would have bypassed to cram herself into that spot that she parked in. Freaking inconsiderate pricks.

Also, foot is doing well, I think. Went to physio Tuesday evening, have another appt tomorrow morning. I got some super easy/basic exercises to do, and the muscles already seem to be doing ok, as long as I take my time with them.

Anyway, I think it's time to take those quotes and print them on a few sheets of paper to leave on people's windshields, especially if they block me out of my car again.

I get a kick out of watching people circling and circling the parking lot looking for a spot that's 10 feet closer to the door. I don't even bother -- just head for where the empty spots are. Many times I've parked, walked to the door, and passed by some idiot who was still circling.

As I mentioned earlier, I hate idiots who park close and ding my doors!! So while I will park my vehicle on a diagonal. As a courtesy, I park at the very back of the lot. Rain or shine, Snow or no and walk a few extra feet!
I never have to circle looking for a spot and Walking certainly isnt going to hurt my fat ass none. I'm usually parked all by my lonesome out there. (...fewer errant shopping carts this way too!)

Haha, this would have been handy; was completely locked in left and right by friendly fellow men had no chance to open the doors enough (this means something; I could sqeeze through 20cm). Good to have a 5-doors car

if we were a better, more just society i would be allowed by law to kill every single person who leaves a shopping cart in the parking lot without returning it to the corral.


that is all.

Wait until I'm off the train until you try and board. I will shoulder check your inconsiderate ass!

What is this madness, being considerate?! Such a silly idea.

Rain rain rain, endless rain. Saddle soaked, mud everywhere. And snow line is at 2800m
