In Around the Park

5:59 pm - So I pull into a parking spot across the street from this cache. I'm about to get out of the car when I see another car approaching, so I decide to wait until they pass. Strangely they don't pass but the people in the dark Jaguar park immediately in front of me, facing the wrong direction on the street, in front of someone's driveway. Whatever. I get out of the car and I'm a few feet in the park when I hear a guy call for my attention. He asks me to move my car.

I didn't see anything wrong with where I parked, so as him if I'm blocking anything. He says I'm parking in front of his house. So? He says I can park anywhere along the street and I retort that so can he. There's nothing wrong with my parking spot. At this point calls me a jerk and tells me to move my car with no other explanation as to why other than it's 'his' spot. Of course he can't park in his driveway because that's where his two other monster SUVs are parked.

At this point I'm infuriated, but realize that no matter what I do, this guy is going to continue to be an ****** for the rest of his life and it's going to be difficult to search for a cache across the street from his house if he's screaming at me. So I told him I disagreed with him, then got in my car and drove around the block, struggling to keep myself from sideswiping his precious jag.

He was in his garage when I walked over to the park so I sat in the grass for a bit and then went for it. Thankfully I didn't have to search long. Thanks.

Grrr, I'm still steaming over that jerk though.

Please, everybody park in front of his driveway from now on. Posted by jeff at May 14, 2005 05:59 PM
