This and That

I live in Greenfield with my husband and cat. I work full time. Frugality and simplicity have been a part of my life long before they became popular and it has made life a lot less stressful. I love volunteering, home improvement/decorating, crafting and gardening.

Arrogance & Ignorance

 I recently read an article about a confrontation between a man and a woman regarding a parking spot.  Apparently, the man was waiting for the parking spot - just as the spot opened up - the woman swung into the spot.  The man ended up pulling the woman's hair, police were called, he got hauled off to jail.  I may not have this exactly correct but I believe I got the general storyline.  First off, that would make me mad, as well; however, it a freakin parking spot and not worth getting upset over the rudeness, arrogance and ignorance of others.  I witness things like this almost every other day.  If she wanted the spot so badly, let her have it.  Personally, I prefer to park away from the closer parking spots and walk for exercise.  

And, then there's the "wonderful" folks that park so close to your car that you can't get in to it when you return from shopping/eating or whatever.  We recently had this happen to us while at a restaurant - we were the first to park and were in the middle of our parking spot.  When we came out of the restaurant, we could not get back into the driver's side of our car because someone had parked so close to our vehicle - my husband had to climb over our stick shift from the passenger's seat so we could go home.  Even a stick man could not have gotten into our car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! via the driver's side car door.   My first instinct was to leave a nasty note but it just wasn't worth it - an individual such as this would just laugh it off anyway.
