When God has road rage He conjures up a tornado to wipe out a trailer park





















I went to the store for some charcoal. Not just any charcoal. I am over the top brand loyal to Wild Oats charcoal. I bought three bags. Allow me to digress. I pulled into the parking lot and I saw a man get into his minivan in a super close parking space. I stopped, thinking he would pull out so I could park there. Now mind you I’m not a parking freak. I will park wherever there is a space and I'll gladly walk my ass off for the implied, delusional exercise. Yet I felt that at this moment I could wait for this gentleman to get situated and back out. Well apparently getting situated took longer than humanly usual. So I began to drive forward to find an alternate parking space at which time he put on his reverse lights. Being happy with his decision and my patience I chose to back up to accommodate his choice to leave. Hoping again for his prime parking location. Yet as I did so he returned to park and sat again. I honked like any self respecting human that had wasted an inordinate amount time waiting for this guy and his parking space. Then I drove past him in pursuit of suitable alternate parking. Being a parking lot that had been recently re-paved my tires squealed a bit. I chose a new spot with no injuries or problems at all. I walked towards the store with my charcoal aim in mind and was accosted by a very small man.


"Was that you squealing in the parking lot?" he said.



"Yes it was an annoying moment." I replied.



Then he said "that is road rage, my friend."



"excuse me?" I asked.



He said "next time you will get a ticket."



I replied, "there was absolutely no one in danger and it was just a frustrating moment."


He said "your attitude will get you in trouble."



Getting even more annoyed, I said "you’re the one with a bad attitude."


He had a smug look that I wanted to wipe clean off his face. Road Rage? How about some stupid guy sticking his nose into something he clearly has no business doing!!! I was so much more angry because of him, than the ‘shit I’ll park somewhere else incident.’ While I was shopping I had all kinds of scenarios going through my head. I hoped he would say one more thing to me so I could say "Back off Napoleon!!’
