Default i just did the best thing!

so i'm at lowes buying light bulbs and two people ahead of me in line is a real *** looking guy, acting real arrogant giving the employee a hard time. All he has on his cart is like 6 cases of water. so he finally pays and leaves for his car, shortly i pay and leave for my mine. He's putting the water into the trunk of a brand new acura RL and what does he do. He takes the ******* cart, walks it over to the adjacent row and leave it in the middle of the open parking space directly in front of me preventing me from pulling forward to get out...even taking the time to ensure it was not going to roll while he is still there. all this while 20 feet away is the cart return area. Well i'm driving my truck so i push the cart towards the back of his car slowly and turn to exit the parking lot and while i turn it falls on it's side about 5 feet behind his car. I get to the end of row and this *** backs right onto it and it gets stuck under his bumper, i drive away feeling very good about myself.

Awesome, even better that you made him do it to himself. I was at SamsClub the otherday, and the whole rear of the parking lot was filled with shopping carts not even 4 spaces from the return. I hate lazy *****.

Kharma is a *****.

Good job! I detest people who leave their carts in an adjacent space, or just prop them against an island, instead of walking the extra 4 feet to the return area.

I left a restaurant one afternoon years ago and someone had their minivan pushed up against my RX-7 (they were the kind of spaces where you face another car - our two front bumpers were touching). I couldn't believe they just ran into me and left the car there. There was no way they didn't see/feel it and you had to walk past my car to get to the restaurant. I had a much shorter fuse back then so backed my car up, jumped out, and keyed the living **** out of their front rubber bumper. No, it wasn't the right thing to do but it made me feel a lot better at the time.

Good Job. I hope it was a bitch to get that cart out from under his bumper. Pehaps he'll think twice next time. I'm to the point where I'm considering building a functional brushguard for my 99 so I can use a little 'chrome horn' when appropriate.

Then you shouldn't have parked all up on my ****!

I miss the hell out of that RX-7 ('85 GSL SE). It was a great car until the last year I had it. I drove it to the Isuzu lot in '95 and traded her in on a new truck (well, I only got $500 for it). When the salesman came out to get the keys I told him that the brakes didn't work and the accelerator cable sometimes stuck. Even though I am an ******* I didn't want the guy to die. The car was pretty much a deathtrap when I got rid of it.

I have quite a temper myself, almost got into a fight in santacruz when i punched the hood of some ******** new BMW while trying to direct traffic. I was letting cars go 20 at a time since the traffic was deadlocking the main parking lot and theres no way the city is going to get officials out there to direct traffic on Memorial day at 7pm, even if they just got a ton of money from tourism (ya that sorta pisses me off) ... Well I directed him to stop and he just guns it right next to me so I punched a nice big dent into his hood.

I managed to diffuse the situation diplomatically and my friends were standing by to assist in kicking his *** if his hit me. Police came, I told em he was trying to run me over and he hasn't tried to collect from me after 6 months. But **** ... that pissed me off so much.

One time I was at the deli counter at the grocery store and this guy was being a total ***** to the girl behind the counter. Saying she was copping attitude with him, she never even so much as looked him in the eye. When I get there (I was next) her co-worker was consoling her so I piped up fairly loud,"Some people just make their living being complete ********. You weren't copping attitude, I watched you the whole time. He was just being an *******." He was within earshot and when I was done I thanked her loudly and walked by him, he didn't even look at me.

I hate fuckholes who think that retail folks are their personal doormats and think they can get away with being ********* like that. I think it's funny as **** that his lazy *** left the cart like that and it got backed into by him. I see ghetto ********* here just push carts out into the great wide open. I want to run over them.

i used to be a bagger at a grocery store and was in express, checked out some lady with like 30 items cause it was slow, then this guy got behind her and started bitching, so i told him to shutup or go to the service desk, he left immediately , this forum is full of haters

....So I work at the airport...of all places to question authority mind you... and people seem to do it all the time. They want ramp access here or to take pictures there. I swear you'd think once I tell them its illegal to do what their doing or they need opertions permisson, or better yet its just plain not accepted, they'd shutup and stop....but no, they go on complaining and trying to convince me to let them continue doing what they are doing....god damn its the law and its an airport trying reasoning with the shrieffs, they might be more open minded then me.....god I love pulling that line.

I loved working part time at Circuit City back in the days of commission. Since I didn't need the job I would pick and choose who I would help. I wasn't discriminatory, hell, one of my customers was a middle aged transvestite. However if a person insisted on being a ********, I'd just walk away from them. My managers new I didn't need the job so they'd ask why I turned my back on them and I'd tell them, they were cool with it. Then the customer would say something about me not wanting money to another employee and they'd say,"He's a fireman, he does this for the discounts." I'd still work there part time, but for the bullshit from corporate it's not worth the lack of pay on hourly.
