Today, after work, I went to pick up the refill for my blood pressure meds at my local Walgreen's. While I normally park as far as possible because that is the only exercise my butt gets, I was tired and cranky so I was happy to find a spot right near the entrance (SCORE!).
Well, it turns out some older guy (in his 50s with no visible handicaps) must have called dibs on the parking spot from all the way across the street because he pounded at my window while I was getting my purse. That startled the shit out of me! I was thinking maybe my car was on fire and I needed to exit it immediately? I opened the door, got out of my car and noticed he had stopped his car behind mine. It took a second to realize he was yelling at me. He was pissed off because I "" took "" his spot. The gas-bag said he had seen it from the other entrance of the parking lot and was heading towards it when I swiped it from under his nose.
I told him the spot didn't have his name on it and I'm sure he was used to disappointment. I walked inside and ignored his rantings. Seriously? What a fucking douchebag!
As I made my way to the pharmacy section, I had called in my refill so I didn't have to wait long, I noticed he was going to the pharmacy too. He continued his caterwauling while he was standing behind me. After I paid for my meds, I turned around and said loudly "Stop hitting on me! You're too old and I'm married!" at which point I raised my hand and pointed at my ring finger. It probably would have helped if I was wearing a ring but no matter. His stunned silence and the snickers of the people behind him was awesome!
I'm guessing he too was picking up blood pressure meds but as you can see, I remained calm, cool and collected. As I walked away, I whispered "Asshole!" loud enough for him to hear and then ran away like Daniel San after he teased the white boys*.
Yeah, bad day for me.
To make matter worse, I locked myself out of the house while I was watering flowers and I had to bang at all the windows and look like an idiot because my HUSBAND wears earphone things when he's saving the world from orcs and my mom was upstairs watching her loud novels. The only ones who heard me were the dogs and they have no idea what a door knob is. Tazz would probably pee on it and then Mocha would lick it. When Andy finally came to the door he asked "where's your cell phone?" Well Scarlett and I have are having technical difficulties so I left her behind thinking I would only be outside for a few minutes. And then he said he was going to install a doggy door for the next time I locked myself out. My man is such a comedian! I was going to suffocate him in his sleep but then I had a beer and now all is right with the world.
The summer, it almost be here.*That is a Karate Kid reference, Brian!
