To be annoyed at people in large 4X4 pickups to complain that parking spaces too small

Hi, I had parked my car neatly within the lines marked out for the parking bay and was just returning back to it when a woman in a MASSIVE pick-up truck parks right next to me and so i have to wait as she gets out of her car.
She almost bashes my side of the car and then she gives me a look an says "Its not my fault these spaces are not big enough"
I had to really bite my tongue as she had two school age children with her as i would have loved to have said "well, most people drive normal cars and we don't all have a fat arse like you"
Because, no kidding, she was a fat arsed lady, almost totally round, no wonder she can't fit in spaces.
God help her if someone blocks her in, should be a funny sight trying to crawl in the boot to move the car.
Sorry about the rant, but she really got on my goat.

So you stand at her looking accusingly & thainking the below & then worry as she gives you a funny look??

so what if she has a fat arse?? god sake, what is wrong with people??

MN is making me quite bad tempered at the mo

at least she was considerate and did not bash the side of your car whislt she struggled to get out

SO, she couldn't park properly because she had a fat arse?

Must be nice up on that high horse.

she should have just parked across 2 spaces

You probably had some sympathy until the bit about the "fat arse".

bobsmum Tue 26-Jun-07 17:54:17

I bet the school age kids were in state/private uniform (delete as applicable)

Don't feel threatened by thoughts you imagine other people are having about you.

allgonebellyup Tue 26-Jun-07 17:54:49

hey why are you lot so touchy about fat people????

bobsmum Tue 26-Jun-07 17:55:25

Because we're all wondering if it could've been one of us

bobsmum Tue 26-Jun-07 17:55:45

And it's downright rude.

Rubyslippers Tue 26-Jun-07 17:55:57

because the size of her bum had nothing to do with her ability (or not) to park

allgonebellyup Tue 26-Jun-07 17:57:08
