I did something rude today. Well, kind of rude. You be the one to let me know. I suppose you could say I "stole" someone's parking spot, as much as any spot in a BYU Y Lot belongs to any person. I was cutting it pretty close to getting to class on time, and I was driving around the various parking lots looking for a spot. As soon as I left one lot I noticed someone was walking INTO the lot looking for their car, so I drove around the block to re-enter the parking lot. I did the most
Ped pulled out of his spot conveniently so I could pull in before the tool in the white car could. The white car jerked forward when he saw I was going to pull into the spot, but I got there before he could clear Ped's car. Then he honked his horn really loud started yelling stuff like, "SERIOUSLY! YOU'RE GONNA DO THAT?!" and I rolled up the windows and turned off the car. I shouldn't have talked to him, but I said something along the lines of, "Sorry, I followed him, I got the spot" and said something about having "rights" because he sat there waiting for a spot. Then he yelled and honked while I walked away.
This is where you come in. I walked away feeling okay about my decision (because he was such a jerk about it), then I kind of wish I had gone back just to move the car. He did wait for a spot and I think I would feel the same if I were in his position. I just think it was luck though that brought my Ped to where he was waiting. So what do you think? Should he have "won" the spot? Was I vindicated in taking the spot because he was a honking moron? Should I not have written this blog at all?
Yours for discussion.
