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.
Nutsac_Jim: "Don't be pulling up on my car that way "What does that even mean?
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.
wxboy: Mark Ellis, Father of 1, Killed In Gun Battle Over Double-Parking Dispute In West PhiladelphiaSounds like a couple of guys were up to no good, and started making trouble in his neighborhood.
cleanup in aisle 2: Secret Master of All Flatulence: WTP 2: "don't come up on my car like that" is put in because they forgot to label him blackNot necessarily. It may be something like a "regional colloquialism". Awhile back, while on a trip, my wife, kids, and I had to unexpectedly stop and get a hotel room when a one day drive needed to be broken up. We ended up pulling off the Interstate in a bad suburban area. While I was unloading the vehicle, somebody pulled up very close behind me, and inched their way into my parking space, which I had left so that I could open the rear door of my vehicle safely. I approached the driver, and politely asked him to pull back a bit to lessen the risk of my rear door unintentionally damaging his vehicle. I was polite (I'm ALWAYS polite, even when irritated) and started the conversation with "Excuse me, Sir, but would you mind" before requesting that he move his car back within the painted lines of the empty space he was parking in. Apparently, he apparently figured that I wasn't local (as if the out of state plates didn't give it away) and looked so pissed off that I felt that it was necessary to put my hand under my untucked shirt and on my (routinely carried but IWB holstered) sidearm, at which point he complied and stormed off. Race wasn't an issue, but it's very possible that what irritated him was the fact that I "didn't speak local". I'm just glad that I had the option of my concealed sidearm, instead of having to open the rear of my vehicle, damaging his vehicle, to get to my MBR out.Gah! Every person in this story is reinforcing my decision to never travel to the states.
bratface: Fricking testosterone? Can't you guys control yourselves? Oh wait. NO!
simkatu: I've been mislead. I was informed that having all these licensed gun owners running about toting their deadly weapons was going to make us all safer./Shocked.
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.
Ow! That was my feelings!: 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??Yes. Selfishness. "It'll only take a minute!"//Consider it temporary parking for the socially challenged and narcissistic.
Literally Addicted: 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.Which one was the "responsible" one again? Responsible people park responsibly, react reasonably to a situation and/or don't necessarily feel the need to use a gun to make their point in a disagreement. Doesn't sound like either of these fools were responsible.
