Stupid Woman

There's this lady who sits in her idling car with her kid while waiting for the bus to come pick the kid up. No problem, it's dark and cold and she's keeping her kid safe. BUT...

There's about 8 other kids on the same corner so it's not like she'd be there by herself.

BUT....

She sits right at the intersection. I'm mean, right. at. the. intersection.

Now normally she at least pulls over so her right side is on the gravel between the street and yard. But she's still right at the stop sign and she's more in the road than not so I and the others coming up still have to go into the other lane to get around her. Very, very annoying and rude to boot.

Today takes the cake. She parked right in the lane. Didn't bother to pull over at all. I wasn't paying attention and didn't recognize the car as hers. So I come up behind the car as you do while driving and then proceed to sit there. I realized who it was after a bit but decided to honk anyway because, well, because. So I do a quick honk because after all, it is 6:30am and not everyone is up at that hour. But no reaction, not even a flashing of the break lights. So I sit for a few more seconds and then laid on the horn. Finally she opens her door and says something, have no idea what, I didn't roll my window down to hear, it's friggin cold out there. She shuts her door, I flash my brights and then back up to go around her.

I so wanted to lay on my horn again or roll my passenger window down to say something to her but decided not too. After all where the intersection is and how our neighborhood is laid out it wouldn't be hard to find my house because I don't park in a garage. For all I know she and/or her kid already know where I live. I doubt she'd do anything but who knows what her husband would do and who knows what kind of friends the kid has. And now that HD is back on nights there's too many of them during the week that I'm by myself. Nope, too risky in this day and age.

But I mean, come on. There's better places for her to park than right at the stop sign and especially in the lane like she did today. Turn right and sit there on that corner. Or turn left and sit on that corner, hell that's where the bus comes up anyway. Or at the very least sit further back in the street so it's completely obvious that you're just sitting there and not some dumb ass that's waiting for the red on the sign to turn green so you can go. Friggin stupid woman.

Damn, I haven't seen this movie in ages!

That would drive me crazy. I hope she moves tomorrow.

It's so damn annoying. I hope so too, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Some people truly believe they own the road...

Yep. She's been there the last couple days but at least she went back to pulling over to the side. She's still right at the stop sign though. Stupid Woman!
