Is that a new form of recycling?

Still seems like you had time to start backing into the spot while they were driving down the street and turning around.

I'm not the hero you asked for, but I'm the hero you need.
Sounds like a constructive way to handle the situation.

Afterwards, they opened up the back of the U-Haul and 53 of them got out.

I'm sure that if we saw you and SolidSnake together, many people would be able to tell you apart.

*sigh*

The parking space was right next to a T intersection--think of it as just under the right-hand arm of the T. They were turning from the upper left of the T, a right turn. They turned wide, which is why I stopped backing into the space; whipped around me, and blocked my way so I could not back up to continue into the space without hitting them.

Nothing. Nothing. Never mind. Otter is now apparently a "safe space." Lena Dunham would be proud.

Re: I had a Mabuse moment Saturday night

Sounds like you were just too timid, and yes, they were assholes to take advantage of that. But if you're going to sit there and watch while assholes maneuver around you to take your parking spot, then there are plenty of assholes in the world who are going to do just that. You needed to back in at least enough to let them know that you weren't going to drop trou and bend over for them, that if they wanted to screw you over, they'd have to work for it.
