First...fender benders lets talk about them. In the event of minor fender benders in which neither party is injured and both vehicles are drivable to
a degree that will not significantly damage the car any further on a road where parking lots or shoulders are nearby...PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF THE REST
OF US move your car out of the way then settle your exchange of info. There is absolutely no need to sit there blocking the road and/or begging for
the attention of any bored police nearby, especially no need to get those guys involved unless of course someone is injured then by all means. The
police are not going to conduct a CSI reenactment for your cracked bumper, they may issue a ticket and that is about it. More importantly you are
clogging up traffic and for that you suck!!
Secondly...Standing in line is not hard, we have been conditioned to do it since grade school. Standing in single file lines is what we as civilized
humans do in all our sheepish glory. I go to the pharmacy today to pick up my scripts. There are two distinct lines separated by one of those rope
things like at banks WITH A SIGN indicating which side is for pick up and which side is for drop off. There is an elderly woman and one other person
behind her on the drop off side and there is a gentleman off to the left of the divider about 10 feet away leaning on a pillar. I walk up to the side
of the sign for pick up and I am the only person in that line. The gentleman at the counter surveys the lines then looks directly at me and says next
so I walk up to the counter.
The gentleman who was leaning on the pillar to the side walks up and in a rather dramatic fashion says:
"sir excuse me sir you just cut this lady in line she was here first"
Me: "Uhh there are two lines, one for pick up and one for drop off and this guy looked right at me when he said next"
angry guy then directs his attention at the pharmacist at the window
Angry guy: "Did you see that?" He cut all these people in line "
Window guy: "Sir there are two lines one for drop off and one for pick up I am handling pick ups"
Angry guy: "Pfft well I was in the pick up line"
Me: "No you were not, you were standing over here in the shadows nobody even knew you were in line"
Window guy: "You were standing over there sir"
Angry guy keeps trying to talk to me while I conduct my business with the cashier so I cross my right arm across my body and display my hand just
above the shoulder palm facing him...
Angry guy: " Pfft I'm not worried about you"
I turn look him in the eyes and say "I'm not worried about you either"
Window guy like a professional ends it by apologizing to angry guy and saying "I'm sorry sir I will be right with you after I finish with this
Window guy and I share eye contact and a brief smirk.
I dislike going in public and dealing with people.
