I have some stories of parking lot situations.
One day, last year, as I was driving into a grocery store parking lot, I
went to the next lane saw someone just left from one space(this was on a
2- way lane and this was close to the front entrance, not a handicapped
spot or reserved spot or anything like that and went into the space. I
did see some other vehicle FAR AWAY that was just sitting there blocking
the lane partially. I don't remember if I noticed if they had their
turn signal on or not I think they did, I don't know for 100% certainty
since she was REALLY FAR away like probably like 5 or so car lengths
away, but honestly it doesn't matter. Anyway, so as I parked I noticed
the lady's big suburban right behind me I open my door to see because I
thought I probably was over the yellow line, so I started my car and was
going to back up, which I had to wait for her to move(I shouldn't have
had to have to do that PERIOD even for a second since she was sitting
there on purpose waiting to confront me) and I am pretty sure she moved
due she probably thought I was going to leave the space to give it to
her that I had felt bad or something. So I straighten out making sure I
am not over the yellow lines. I get my stuff, get out my car, this bitch
had the GALL to tell me I believe it was something like this "I wanted
that space and had my turn signal on and everything." I told her "It's a
free for all a parking lot and I have just as much rights to that space
as you do." I also told her "I don't see your name on that space." I
sure didn't take up more of my time for that bitch. I just as I walked
towards the store told her these things and walked into the store.
First off, why should I bypass a good close spot because she is waiting
for it? Is she a QUEEN and we should all BOW DOWN TO HER or something?
Did she ***PAY*** for this spot or have her *NAME* on it? NOOOOO!
Waiting for a spot and putting your turn signal on doesn't "ENTITLE" you
to a parking spot. I have just as much LEGAL AND MORAL rights as she
does to that space or anybody, since it's not a handicapped space or
Secondly, she was being selfish blocking people to begin with waiting
for a spot to begin with that people shouldn't have to either go around
her or have problems backing out of a space. The only time I even decide
to wait for a spot is if no one is behind me or/and the person is
already half-way backing out, otherwise I don't block people from coming
into the lane or and I don't block people from being able to back out
of spaces either. Basically the only time I wait is if the person is
actually backing out the space as I approach it UNLESS I am not going to
block anyone not only behind me and anyone backing out of a space as
well. I am VERY CONSIDERATE of others in this world. That lady wasn't.
She was VERY SELFISH!
Thirdly, she didn't think about how she was blocking me to have to
straighten out. I shouldn't have to wait for her to move her vehicle to
back up my car to straighten out. I am trying to do the morally right
thing by parking not over the yellow lines. That was selfish to block me
like that and she is that stupid not to realize she made me wait to
back up all because she wanted to confront me. Talk about wasted time.
She could have been shopping by then, seriously. How selfish can someone
be and stupid that could have WAYYYY BEEN in the store already as well
as hot tempered to have blocked me like that.
Fourthly, why do people think because they wait for a space that
entitles them to the space as if they OWN it? I don't think I own a
space even if I waited for a person to back out. It's not my space, it's
the owner of the business's space. If I end up not getting it, SO THE
HELL WHAT?? I mean really, it's not the end of the world, move on.
Confronting someone, who knows if that person you are confronting would
have a gun or something or was going to beat her up for doing that or
something, seriously, that woman is brave. I would NOT have confronted
the person PERIOD! I am not better than that person is or more entitled
to any spot since it's not a handicapped or reserved spot.
*I HAVE JUST AS MUCH RIGHTS AS SHE DOES TO THAT SPACE!*** I am not going
to bypass the space because she's waiting for it. She CHOSE to wait for
it, NOT ME! It's just like when you are going towards a line, someone
beats you at times by a mere second, maybe even a microsecond even.
That's life, get over it.
How many people out there first off CONFRONT people like that? How many
people agree with that selfish bitch and don't realize she was being
selfish blocking people from backing out or in my case straightening up
as well as blocking anyone else from backing out where she was
originally as well as anyone that would have come down that lane since
unlike I do, she wouldn't have moved for them? How many people out there
are HER that block people to wait for a space and WHY? I don't mean if
the person is backing out either. I mean just sit there for several
minutes, especially when the person isn't even in their vehicle even.
The other day I had someone blocking cars even behind me because this
person didn't want to park in a spot due to waiting for someone. If you
wait for someone, just park in an actual SPOT. It wasn't raining either
I have had 2 times where I was literally BLOCKED IN because the person
was waiting for a space and there was a person behind me, which those
times it was just a one-way lane. One of those times I was going HOME,
that's right, I shouldn't have to wait for someone's parking spot.
That's just unfair. Why should I have to wait for *YOUR* parking spot,
especially when I want to go home? It's not fair nor is it right. I
don't do that to others, don't do it to me. Treat others as you'd like
to be treated if that were *YOU*!
What is it with you jerks out there that are SO SELFISH? Why can't you
be ********CONSIDERATE******* of other people's time? You aren't the
ONLY PERSON that needs to shop, run errands, go eat, go home, etc.. Why
ACT LIKE your time is ABOVE OURS? Why act like you are a queen or king
like that lady that decided to tell me that her turn signal on was an
indicator she owned that spot. NO, no turn signal makes you own A THING.
Her name would have been on the spot if she had PAID for it. She
wasn't the owner of the spot. First come first gets it just like in a
line. If you are too stupid to wait right by the person pulling out,
that's your issue, not mine. At first I didn't even know she was waiting
for the spot and then realized it after since she was SOOO FARRRR AWAY,
I really wasn't 100% sure she was waiting for it. I thought maybe she
was, but I wasn't 100% certain that I thought maybe she was waiting for
someone inside like a lot of people do that are too lazy to park into an
actual spot, so she would sit on the side instead. Some people do just
sit digging through their vehicles or just waiting for someone to get
out. I have had that happen before like once at McDonald's had to honk
on some lady that was blocking me from backing out because she was going
to the drive-thru line, but I guess getting her money out prior to
going up to the speaker. Some people aren't waiting for a space, they
are just waiting for someone or digging through their car. She acted
like I was supposed to read her mind or something and as if I should
have to sacrifice part of my life(my time) for hers as if she's queen
above me or something.
Just the other day I went around someone and got a spot that I didn't
even know someone was waiting for(I thought they were digging through
their car) and they honked on me the ENTITLED JERK as if I took the spot
they were waiting for. I mean WTH?? Why people act so ENTITLED to a
spot they are waiting for? NOBODY owns the spot, so WHY act like that?
Why not just go park? If your body has no issues that you can walk fine
without pain or problems, why not just go park? Lots of people that are
fully capable and able to walk just fine wait for parking spots I find. I
don't mean in the rain either. I can see a bit more reasoning when it's
raining, but I still don't hold up anyone even if it is raining. The
times I have had problems has been when it was nice weather.
WHY you people that do this think you are ENTITLED to the parking spot
as if you OWN the business? I mean if I was parking in a handicapped or
reserved spot which I am neither of those I could understand that not
only is that illegal, but immoral, but if it's just a regular non-marked
spot, non-reserved spot that NO ONE has ***PAID*** FOR, WHY do you
people act SO FREAKING ENTITLED?
I want to know WHY you think I should pass up a space for someone that
as you saw was a bitch to me by blocking me so I couldn't back up the
first second I could have to straighten out? So I should be courteous to
her when she sure wasn't to me that I had to wait for her to back up
her suburban to straighten out my car which was time that she was
wasting of MINE and not MY FEELINGS OR TIME, especially for a SELFISH
BITCH that was blocking traffic on that lane to begin with. She
shouldn't have blocked me from straightening out. She didn't think of
**** MY FEELINGS, MY TIME****, SO WTH SHOULD I THINK OF HERS??? She was
doing it on purpose to block me to tell me something. People shouldn't
have to go around you as well. You are preventing other people from
backing out of spaces. I have had that happen a number of times too
where people are waiting for a space and aren't realizing people want to
get out of their parking spaces that you are blocking them in. VERY
INCONSIDERATE of a world we live in.
I want to know for the many people are out there that do this, WHY be SO
DAMN SELFISH AND LAZY? WHY NOT JUST FREAKING PARK?? I mean if you have
problems with your legs, go earlier to place or apply for a handicap tag
or some kind of temporary tag if they have one. Usually in the very
early hours of the place of business opening there are much less people.
The thing is, MOST of these people doing this are just LAZY ASSES and
all of these times it wasn't raining, it was nice weather.
I am a TINY bit more forgiving of a person waiting for a spot blocking
me if it's pouring down rain as long as it's not more than 10 seconds or
so, but as I said in ALL of these cases, it wasn't raining. I still
think it's wrong though REGARDLESS of weather.
I would just like to know WHY you people out there think waiting for a
spot in a parking lot or putting your turn signal on somehow entitles
you to the spot if I get to it first, huh? The owner of the business
owns this parking lot, the parking spots, everything about the piece of
property. You don't own shit, nor do I. If I got to it first, that's
just like when I get to a line 2 microseconds before someone else. At
times I could have been first, but just got there not even a second
difference, but the person beat me to the line.
How many people honk on people that do what I did by grabbing the spot
as I did or even confront the person or have keyed cars or did anything
criminal to the person or their vehicles? How many people might get mad,
but right after let it go and say "Oh well they got to it before I
How many people feel what I did was wrong and why? Why should I have
been nice to her when she showed that she wasn't nice to me blocking me
from straightening out my car? I had to wait for her to move so I could
straighten out my car, how is that NICE, but then you people look at me
like *I* am the villain, like WTH???? That makes no sense and you know
it. How many people feel like what she did was right and I mean
everything she did from confronting me to blocking me from backing out. I
wasn't wrong and even if you feel what I did was wrong, you aren't
right, because I have JUST AS MUCH ((((((((((((LEGAL AND MORAL
RIGHTS))))))))))))))) as she did to that spot. Also, as I said, if I
would have let her have that spot, did you realize that she made me wait
an extra 5 seconds I couldn't back up because she was BLOCKING ME just
so she could tell me something and blocking other people from backing
out or coming into the lane? Then my time would have been punished and
why do be NICE to a SELFISH, MEAN BITCH like that?
I am not going to be nice to a SELFISH DUMB bitch that DECIDED ALL ON
HER STUPID OWN TO WAIT FOR THE SPACE. I am glad I showed her. She
doesn't own the spot. That's not how parking lots work. As long as it's
not a handicapped or reserved spot, everyone has 100% EQUAL LEGAL rights
to any parking spots.
I don't really give a shit if she waited for it. She CHOSE to be LAZY
ASS to not just go ahead and park further and then walk or try to get
another parking space instead. I have seen people waiting for a spot and
I was already walking in. It's pretty sad today that people do this
wasting gas and time. Seriously, WHY? You could be in the store already.
When she confronted me, do you realize all that *TIME* she took from
her own life? Seriously, how pathetic. If you have a health issue like a
broken leg or something, you might want to apply for a temporary
handicapped tag or something. I would think they might have something
for people that have situations that are not permanent. Also, let's say
they don't have such a thing, if you are in a lot of pain walking, you
might want to consider going at other times of the day that are slow
business times. It's amazing how if you go to Walmart at 10p.m. at
night how much different in is than going at 6p.m. at night or going on a
Saturday or Sunday afternoon. I have just as much legal rights to park
somewhere as ANYONE ELSE in this world. If I had a broken leg or had
lots of pain, I still wouldn't feel entitled to a space just because I
would have waited for it. I wouldn’t have blocked someone in the first
place to get it(as I said unless they were literally backing out at the
time I was passing or there was no one behind me and I wasn't blocking
anyone from leaving). I don't feel more entitled to anything than
anyone else. The thing is, the MAJORITY of these people that are
griping are people that walk just fine. I recently this year had this
bitch that I saw she walked just fine when she confronted me saying "You
saw me waiting" as if that is supposed to entitle her to a space. I
don’t TRULY UNDERSTAND this "ENTITLENESS" attitude in this world as if I
have to act like they are ABOVE me in this world? WTH is with these
people? What happened was same kind of thing except this person was
waiting in front while the person backed out. I don't remember if that
lady had her signal on or not, but as I had to maneuver my car just to
go around her which is something I shouldn't have had to do in the first
place, I got the spot once the person backed out. That's when after I
got out my car and she parked a few spaces down(BIG DEAL), she walked
JUST FINE. She had ZERO PROBLEMS WALKING. She called said "You saw me
waiting" "You and your scrawny ass ." I told her that her name wasn't on
the spot, that she wasn't a queen, that it was ***WALMART'S SPOT***
that Walmart owns the parking lot, NOT HER. I am so SICK of ASSHOLES
like this. What is it going to take to get people to realize everyone
are EQUALS in this world that should have EQUAL RIGHTS to things. This
wasn't a handicapped spot, it was just a regular spot.
As I said before, I am not a type of person that does this blocking
people thing. I am not sure if the lady last year if she even waited
long or not.
BOTH acted like they were ABOVE ME like there were more entitled than I was to the spot. WHY? Anyone
having their turn signal on doesn't entitle you to a spot. WAITING for
a spot doesn’t entitle you to a spot either. This isn't a line like in
the store where you have "turns", it's a parking lot. To me, it's just
like when someone else gets to a line a microsecond faster than you.
How many people have done what I have done? How many people have
confronted people doing what I did? How many people think it's rude of
me to take the space just because someone is BLOCKING TRAFFIC(slowing
everyone else down) to wait for the spot, when it's not rude of me? If
you feel you’re your spot, WHY? Because waiting for something means you
are blocking people and how is that nice to people? I look at it like
that. They are jerks, so I treat them like jerks. They HELD ME UP, I
will hold them up by taking the space they wanted. They were selfish,
WHY can't I be as well? It's a 2-way street when it comes to be selfish.
They are SELFISH to BLOCK someone from either leaving the parking lot
because they can't back out of their space or leave the parking lot
because they are behind a person that is waiting for a spot or someone
that wants a space so they can park and go shop.
Also, to the people that feel I was wrong(which I wasn't), why should
I bypass a good spot because these women were waiting for it? I have just as much rights to that good spot as they legal and morally.
Also, as I have said, the first lady was a bitch by blocking me so I
couldn't straighten out right away as I SHOULD have been able to. Why
should I be nice to an inconsiderate BITCH that I had to wait to back up
because she was PURPOSEFULLY BLOCKING ME? That's not nice, is it? She
was as SELFISH BITCH! She was mean in the first place to sit there and
BLOCK traffic going up and down the aisle that they'd have to go around
her or that someone couldn't back out of their space to leave the
parking lot. She thought she was a QUEEN. She is NOT MORE ENTITLED TO
THAT SPOT THAT I WAS. I got to it first, TUFF COOKIES if she didn't get
it. MOVE ON and she shouldn't have confronted me as if she was a queen.
The first lady acted so entitled because her turn signal was on. SO THE
HECK WHAT your turn signal is on?? SO??? Your turn signal doesn't
entitle you to a parking spot. I have NEVER HEARD OF THAT BS! As I told
her, "I don't see your name on that spot", because that's how she acted.
You haven't PAID for that exact spot either. If you wait for
something, that's *YOU* being stupid, NOT ME. Just go and park, then you
won't have all of that crap, seriously.
This isn't a line where it's first, second, third, etc. There is no line and no one has turns here
whoever gets the spot first. She seems to view it as a line like in the
store where you are waiting behind someone to get your turn. There are
no "turns" when it comes to parking spots.
If you want a better spot, GO EARLIER!
Seriously, if you want the
best of the front spots, go before it even opens like 10 minutes or
something or if you know it's not busy the first few hours go then or go
another day. Don't act like you are ABOVE ME. My time is
*************EQUALLY JUST AS IMPORTANT AS HERS IS IN THIS WORLD********!
We are ALL EQUALS in this world!
So to everyone that feels because you wait for a parking space that it's
your spot as if you were in a line when you aren't and most
importantly, you didn't **PAY** for that spot to have that privilege of
saying it's truly yours, WHY do you all feel it's "YOURS" when you don't
OWN ANYTHING, the owner of the parking lot owns that spot, NOT YOU
because you simply decided to wait for it? It's similar to a line in
that I got to the front of the line BEFORE you got there by mere
seconds. That's kind of what this is. It's not a line, but getting to
the line BEFORE the other person. I have had times where I went in
line, the person went in front of me like maybe a microsecond before me
or visa versa. That's life. WHY are people so hell bent on acting like
the space they waited for is "THEIRS" like they have paid for it or
something? I don't do this as I said. Even if I am waiting as the
vehicle is backing out, if someone else got it before me, SO WHAT. It's
not the end of the world, I will just go find another spot. No need to
get bent out of shape over it like I just hit your vehicle or something.
It's not that important.
Also, by blocking traffic, how is that nice? Once, some lady waited for a
space, as I was going honking on her, a pick up truck is behind me, so I
think "GREAT NOW I AM BLOCKED", so I get up out of my car and ask if
this lady can move over some so I can pass. Of course, she doesn't the
selfish bitch. So I was blocked. This happened to me again when I was
leaving a store, it's just so mean. Another time, I was trying to back
out of space, this person waiting for a space was in front. I had to
honk at least 15 seconds or so for them to move. How is this "common
courtesy" to block people? Tell me WHY IN THE HELL SHOULD I WAIT FOR
"YOUR SPACE"(it's not really your space, but you feel it's yours)?
That's not fair to punish innocent people that don't want your space.
That want to leave the store or park somewhere else, you are all taking
up OTHER PEOPLE'S TIME.
Serenity S said: "but in future if someone is waiting first let them
park first. It is a societal rule like waiting in line at the
This is actually a *FALSE* statement here. There is no "LINE" and it's
only similar in that whoever gets to the space first gets the spot,
that's it. WHY should I think of someone else's feelings and time that
isn't thinking of anyone else's time or feelings **BLOCKING*** people to
get it? They aren't nice people, are they? WHY should I act like they
are "ABOVE" me like they have more rights to the space than anyone else
just because they *CHOSE* to WAIT FOR IT and BLOCK people in the process
of getting where others need to be whether it's leaving or going inside
What is it with people BLOCKING you for "THEIR space" when it's not
theirs to begin with since they didn't pay for it and their name is not
on it? WHY should I have to wait for that lady that blocked me(when I
went up to the lady to ask her to move, she wouldn't(that story)? WHY
should my time be compromised for someone else's time?
As I said, I don't sit and just wait for a space(to me sitting waiting
while the person is half-way out isn't really waiting since they are
already backing out). It doesn't bother me any to walk more. If it's
raining, I will just make a run for it or bring my umbrella or if it's
something that can wait, I may wait to go another time to that store. I
don't block people. In fact, when I am backing out of space, I back in
when I see cars coming down the aisles. Now if I see they want my space
like they have their turn signal on, then I will go, but only then. I
am always thinking of people's feelings and time. I don't think that
because I waited for someone to back out even that the space is mine. SO
WHAT I waited, that was **MY CHOICE*** to wait. NO ONE MADE ME WAIT
FOR IT. It's not like I paid for it. My name isn't on it. No one gave
it to me either. The owner of the parking lot owns the space, NOT
So to you people that wait for a space, why you all feel you are all
nice people when you aren't? Blocking people either going down the aisle
or backing out of their space or making people go around you how is
that nice and considerate or thoughtful or kind? I would like to really
know. Please tell me WHY you all feel it's "YOURS" when it's not your
space and the person being mean is the person that is BLOCKING OTHERS
for "THEIR SPACE"(not legally their space or morally)? Do you all not
see that if you do that you are all being ***SELFISH AND BEING MEAN*****
to others in the world?
I asked a co-worker at another job I had
over 10yrs ago about it and she said "Well the next person will just get
the space." The thing is, she didn't understand that sometimes people
aren't even in their vehicles yet putting away their bunches of
groceries and their babies in their car seats, etc. So not everyone is
leaving right then and there. WHY should I sit there be
blocked(remember I can't back up because someone is behind me and I
can't go forward, because I can't go around) for the space you feel
entitled to because you feel like you are above everyone else? HOW do
you feel that *YOU* are being a nice, considerate human being when you
do these things and then act like that people like me are the villains
because we got to the space first and *CHOSE* not to block anyone? Why
you people that do this feel you are a king or a queen ABOVE the rest of
society like the world "OWES" you that space? You waited for it, NOT
ME! Be mad at *********YOURSELVES*************if you waited a long time
for a space and didn't get it. Don't be pissed at the other person.
They had EVERY LEGAL AND MORAL RIGHT JUST AS YOU DID to that space.
Maybe you should have gotten CLOSER to the space so someone couldn't
easily do that? The two people that I got the spaces from first weren't
near the spaces. One was around 5-6 car links away. That makes no
sense. The other one, I had to go around, which that inconvenienced me.
That lady that went behind me to confront me, blocked me so I had to
wait for her to move her vehicle which isn't nice and then she thought
she was nice. WHY you people think your "TURN SIGNAL" ENTITLES you
to something in the world when you haven't
************PAID*************** A FREAKIN CENT for it?
This pisses me off that people just act like they are ABOVE you in
this world like they are better than you. You are all not more
privileged than anyone else since it's not a handicapped space and even
then, if 2 handicapped people want the space, whoever gets to it first
gets it. That's how parking lots work. This is NOT a LINE, IT'S NOT A
LINE! WHY do most people seem to feel this way that it's like a line
simply because they "CHOSE" to wait for something, huh? You didn't pay
for it, it doesn't have your name, it's not yours. A parking lot is a
FREE-FOR-ALL! It's not a line, there are no "TURNS" to speak of in a
parking lot situation. You are all not more entitled than anyone else
to a non-reserved, non-handicapped space(assuming that you aren't
Thanks to everyone for your time.
