8 Pet Peevery Lane

I'm still hot under the collar over this one, Folks.

Have you ever been to Target on a Saturday afternoon?

Specifically, have you ever been to THE Target - the flagship store - in Denver? You know the one, at Colorado and Alameda that's always jam packed on weekend afternoons?

Uh huh.

I'm usually right on top of the grocery shopping thing, choosing to go early in the morning to avoid the crowds. However, today I was feeling extraordinarily lazy and so I got a late start.

A very late start. Like 1 p.m. late.

To my utter surprise, when I turned down a row in the parking lot, there was an open space 3 stalls from the front. So I turned on my blinker and waited patiently for the couple that looked to be in their mid-50's to mosey by the space.

Just as they were almost to the point where I could pull into the space however, the man stopped, pulled the 2 grocery bags he had out of the cart, and then pushed the cart right smack dab into the middle of the parking space.

The parking space in which I was getting ready to pull.

I honked my horn and he turned, looked at me, looked at the cart, and kept walking.

I threw the car into "Park", got out of the car, retrieved the buggy, and slammed it into the buggy know, the carousel that was less then 20 feet away.

All the while, he continued to stare at me.

I glared evilly back and pointed straight at him and declared in my most debater-trained voice, "JACKASS!"

Seriously, People. What goes around, comes around. And knowingly, deliberately doing something that inconsiderate because you're too fucking lazy to take an extra few steps?

Target Shopper Rude Man, I'd like for you to meet karma. She's a real bitch. And you deserve every bit of her.
