Has this ever happened to you? After circling around endlessly for 20 minutes at a completely PACKED parking lot on a busy Saturday afternoon, I finally saw someone leaving, and patiently waited for the parking spot (blue car) for them to leave. Out of nowhere comes a punk kid and his mom, and I would guess the dad (driving the silver Corolla).
Apparently now you can sweet talk your way and reserve the spot if you just stand there and use a kid to block you with his bike. Your car was not even there. I waited a full minute before you even showed up. My turn signal was indicated at 0.06 of the video.
For what it's worth, the lady of the car leaving said to me, "they have been waiting here for a while, so they can have the spot". She seems clueless that I was there waiting for their spot way before they arrived and sided with them since they chatted moments earlier. SMH...
Remember the cretins who shut down a busy freeway in Los Angeles several years back, forcing stalled drivers to listen to their musical performance? Or the marriage proposal that took place in the middle of the 10 freeway in West Covina in a cloud of pink smoke, stopping traffic for 10 minutes?
The latest chapter in the book of narcissistic assholes who enjoy causing massive gridlock on freeway systems used by ambulances, fire trucks, and people who get their pay docked if they punch in late is Vidal Valladares. He was arrested on Tuesday after he shut down Interstate 45 in Houston to propose to his girlfriend amidst the romantic clamor of honks and angry screams. He faces six months in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. He was charged with obstructing a roadway, a Class B misdemeanor. Read the rest
