The Last Miinute

Wow, I just went to a popular outdoor mall in the Studio City area here in California, and people were definitely doing their last minute shopping in a panic mode.  As I was pulling into the parking lot, I saw one girl literally stealing another older woman’s parking space. 

This girl had looped her car around to get the space at the head of an isle.  Even the guy who was vacating the space was so upset by her action that he got out of his car and yelled at the girl.  The girl didn’t budge, and so the vacating person just kept his car in the space, hoping the girl would go away, which she didn’t.

Then, another young girl and an elderly woman were standing by their cars, and I heard the young woman get off of her cell phone and say, “Well, I’m not calling the police since they won’t come because nobody was injured” in a very entitled voice, as she swatted at her dachshund to stay in the car.

I saw people honking at each other, making faces at each other, and yet I saw others being quite polite and letting other people go.  It’s definitely last minute shopping-time folks, and it’s crazy out there, so be careful!
