Its Back...3 Rants and a Rave

You know the drill...3 things that are making me scrinchy, and 1 that melts it all away.

1. To the multitude of people who have seen fit to hit the side of my car with your car door in the last 4 weeks...(seriously, I had 1 "rude door" ding for 4 years, in the last 4 weeks it has been multiplied by at least 5)If you are so fat you can't get out of your car without hitting my car in the process...park on the outside of the parking lot and talk a walk! The extra steps will do you good. ( I am fat, technically, medically "Obese"...I can get out of my car without hitting your car, so I'm guessing your just too lazy or too inconsiderate to care).

2. To the person at Cost-co who saw fit to take not one, not two, but FOUR parking places...who do you think you are? Now, I understand you don't want "rude door" dings on the side of your beautiful new truck, but seriously, FOUR parking spaces? At Costco? Where there are never 2 EXTRA parking spaces, ever? I could go on about this, but I'll probably just come off as bitter and angry.

3. "Push Here and Tear Back" boxes. Am I the only person on the planet who can't open a box by "pushing here"? Seriously, am I? Because I have never yet been able to successfully open a box, using only my fingers, by "Pushing Here". If you want me to be able to open your box by "pushing here" may I suggest some kind of scoring system? Perhaps you could range the scores from 1-4 based on difficulty. How's that for an idea?
RAVE!!!---Wixom Zoo for her Kindred Spirit-edness, and her lurkerville confessions.

What I hate are those resealable packages that you cannot separate the resealable part and wind up tearing the bag just below the "seal"… Arrrg!!!

I am up way before I wanted to be up, and this makes me angry.

And I agree with everything you said here.

I'm so cynical now that if anyone drives up beside me and parks and I'm still in the car, I find myself glaring at them...just in case.

Jillene said...

And how about the ones that leave the cart in the middle of the parking lot on a windy day? They anger me too because it is always my car that gets hit with the run-away cart!!

Heatherlyn said...

I'm with you on the push-to-open packaging and the taking-up-multiple-spaces parking. And I'll go with CaJoh's resealable package trouble too.

Most of the dents in our car sides come from our kids and their bikes or scooters. :(

Thanks for the Rave! Yay! I love comment love... I'm totally there on the Costco parking thing. It makes me want to squish in next to them with my minivan and park just as close as I can so that when they come out they can't get in. (hehehe) :)

I especially love it when it says "Cut here" on a resealable bag (like the meatballs at Costco, anyone??) and you end up cutting soooooo close to the seal that you can't open it.

Also, I've seen quite a few "angels" leave their carts right on top of the handicapped space. Such sweethearts!

Lara said...

I am trying to imagine how on earth someone could possibly take 4 parking spaces! Big jerk.

And I can't ever open those boxes either. I have to use a knife.

Tink said...

Ewww, gotta hate those door dingers and parking space hoggers! Nothings ruffles me more.

So said...

Ha! I so hear you on all of these...every one. The other day I came out to my car and a truck had parked so close to the drivers side I had to crawl through the passenger side to get through.

it should be legal to flatten all four of there tires!

Tana said...

I love the title. I need to steal but I feel for the car. It has to carry around this fat tub of lard all day and then finally gets to take a break and wham! it's door (like left arm) goes flying right into a perfectly nice car. Imagine the trama!

Packaging has really gone down hill lately. You have nailed that on the head!

the word you are looking for is parking schmucks

I can't turn silly pickle jar caps. I think we all deserve some rants.

Amen 1,2,3. Spot on, my dear.

I like I might have accidentally keyed four car parking space person.

They suck.
