Wow, only two things on the list today:
People who have no idea what those white parking lines mean;
People who bring boisterous young children into a small, quiet auditorium to watch a performance.
This all stems from a single visit to my daughter’s school this afternoon. Her 4th Grade class was putting on a Thanksgiving performance so I, of course, wanted to watch my child in her role as Aunt Myrtle Turtle. I pull into the school parking lot and find that all of the spots are taken – except – there would be one spot left it hadn’t been for the idiot that took up TWO parking spaces. You know, the person that apparently cannot discern where the frickin’ white painted lines are. Urrggghhhh! I am PISSED and start plowing around the parking lot at full speed because NOW I am going to be late for the performance.
I think to myself, I’m going to go buy the biggest package of sticky notes that I can find, carry them with me at all times and start leaving notes for these incapable park-ers. As I’m driving around trying to find another parking space I’m thinking of all sorts of snide things to write on these sticky notes: Learn how to frickin’ park, asshole; You suck – you park like an idiot; Don’t forget your 2pm eye dr. appt. – because you certainly NEED GLASSES; If you can’t park, don’t drive – you get the gist.
Okay, so I finally find a spot to park, dash into the school and get seated only to find that someone has inconsiderately toted their toddler with them this afternoon. A toddler that obviously needed a nap because for the first 20 minutes of the performance all anyone could hear was the wriggling and crying child. I think the woman got the hint when I turned around for the third time and gave her my “I’m gonna grab my pen outta my purse and poke your eyes out” look, because she immediately grabbed the child and left. But, not before she returned to grab the kid’s coat and whisper “she’s really tired”, Ya THINK? WTF? What is wrong with people???
