You know those little dangly "air freshener" things that hang from rear-view mirrors in cars?
Usually shaped like dolphins or pine trees or flowers?
This guy behind me had one. Not unusual. What was unusual was the "saying" that was on it. It was just a white square... You know how people use a "heart" symbol for "love"? Like "I (heart) my Rottweiler" bumper stickers?
This guy was advertising that he (heart) his penis.
I stop at my favorite store on the way home to buy a telephone cable because I'm going to do some furniture-moving in the livingroom and will need a longer telephone cable. In I go, and out I come with a cable, a packet of "Twinkies", a DVD, 2 air-fresheners, a candle and a package of socks.
And parked not 10 inches from my driver-side door is a fucking grey Hummvee.
There isn't enough room between his fucking tank and my door for a fucking anorexic supermodel to get into my car, much less pudgy lil' me.
And this asswipe is on his cellphone in the driver's seat - rather POINTEDLY ignoring me.
So he gets out, and starts in to the store, at which point I say loud enough for the folks in the next county to hear "So, I guess I'll have to wait for him to get done shopping to move his TANK so I can get in my car"
He comes back "It's just a big car..."
"You've parked it on the line - I cannot possibly get into my car with your TANK there - could you please move it?"
General Patton got into his tank in a huff and moved off 6 slots further away from me. Worked for me. Fucking asshat. What, just because HE doesn't care about the environment means I have to wait for him to get done shopping in order to drive home?
Not bloody likely.
I'll try and download that "Trillian" thing tonite after work, V. Thanks.
