    Yeah it might actually have been me… sorry everybody :(

    Dam it was only up to twenty comments a few moments ago. It could have got more interesting when it actually needed to be for once.

    Also I think she should have to do what large people on airplanes do Pay twice if you don’t fit.

    Everyone should just drive hatchbacks and exit through the hatchback. That’s what I do. It’s awesome I pretend I’m a baby coming through the birth canal, onlookers think it’s hilarious (probably).

    My car doors on my lil hatchback freeze up pretty regularly in icy weather and I have to do this fairly often. It’s not that awesome though.

    Usually I would not make cracks in light of someone’s disposition. But if their putting themselves on the chopping block I can be bad for a day and read all the stuff that will become that thread.

    I back into parking spaces because I don’t want to back my blind ass out, especially when some nice person has parked their Mobile Blind Spot next to me and I can’t see if anyone is coming.

    Parking the way she describes is inviting vandalism to your vehicle.

    It would be if you installed one of these back there.

    A long time ago, I saw some fool had parked a full sized car in an area of a parking garage that had been reserved for compact cars. Apparently, the people who came in later did not like that. The cars on either side of the behemoth were just inches from its doors (one of those cars had even backed in so its driver could get out using the driver’s side door).

    I used to do that all the time at OSU when I had a beater chevette (remember that thing?). There was almost always some douche in a “nice” car deliberately taking the middle of 2 spaces. Lucky I only needed half a space. I always found parking. :)

    Ah yes, the Chevette. I remember that car Mike. Darn. Where has the time gone.

    The Chevette had its evil twin: the Pontiac T-1000 (no resemblance to the Terminator with the same model name). But how about the Ford Festiva? Talk about small. And it only had a three cylinder engine.

    The thing I can’t get over is this:

    She’s so convinced that the guy who left the note is the bigger asshole that she actually wrote a newspaper column about the incident and put her name on it.

    Utter insanity. Whoever printed this must hate her. Her not-my-fault attitude is as others have mentioned, the worst aspect of her behavior… I can’t believe they included her real work e-mail AND a photo, clearly comments were closed (though still visible) because she’s likely very upset by this. I can’t imagine what her inbox looks like right now. Hopefully she will learn that playing well with others is not optional. She could have handled this so much more gracefully by telling almost the exact same story, but ending it with, “ok, you got me, I hear you. I vow to park more carefully from now on.”

    In other news, I look forward to much more interesting “topix” threads now that JimL2 has discovered them. I used to avoid Dispatch Comments like they were sweaty grey bologna.

    True, I just thought it sounded horribly complacent.
    I’m fat because other people are fat.

    Scientific thinking FAIL.

    The correct summary is, “I’m fat for the same reason(s) most other Americans are fat.”
