czei: Atomic Spunk: All of a sudden, a guy comes running out of the gate. He's pushing a handtruck with a big box on it. He raises his and and says, "Sorry! I couldn't find a place to park and I needed to load this in my van. I'll be gone in a few seconds."One time I was blocked in by this big-ass SUV... I started to get out of the car, the other driver gets out, and low and behold it was my father-in-law, picking up a new appliance for the vacation home he lets me use for free.
Atomic Spunk: csb...Several weeks ago, I was dropping off a friend at his home. As I was driving down a one-way street, there was a guy there who was double parked, blocking my way. I couldn't turn around because it was a one-way street. Although his van's engine was running, I didn't see anyone around. It was a really long day, and I was tired, so this really started to bug me. I put my car in park, and got out to find the asswipe who would be so inconsiderate.All of a sudden, a guy comes running out of the gate. He's pushing a handtruck with a big box on it. He raises his and and says, "Sorry! I couldn't find a place to park and I needed to load this in my van. I'll be gone in a few seconds. Thanks!" I said, "No problem. Need any help?" He said, "Thanks, but I got it. Sorry again, man." He loaded up the box, threw the handtruck in his van and left. I dropped my friend off, then went hope and fell asleep.
Heamer: FrancoFile: Also done a lot by delivery driversA friend of mine who used to be a UPS driver once told me that UPS will pay double-parking tickets, but will not pay any other parking violations incurred by their fleet of trucks. I don't know if this is true, but it helps explain why delivery trucks so frequently double-park.
Xenomech: I don't understand "double parking". Do some people in the US just park in the middle of the street if there is no room to park along the curb? Why would someone even think of doing that??
Carn: Literally Addicted: Isolated incident...Only responsible gun owners...Guns don't kill people.../need a copy/paste for those, they're used often enoughI think maybe the politeness comes from the people who witnessed the guy get gunned down by the responsible guy.
Pocket Ninja: I'd just like to reiterate my general point that Opposing Views is a website wholly without merit, a pointless hole in the internet that has no useful function whatsoever.
Nutsac_Jim: "Don't be pulling up on my car that way "What does that even mean?
