Stopped at a 7-11 the other day.

So I go into the 7-11 to get a Sprite and it takes me all of 3 minutes to go into the store ... get the Sprite and pay for it and then head back out the door.

I had parked my Camaro as far away from other cars as I normally do and of course it's like a magnet. When I got back there was a lady parked next to me getting some things out of her car for some reason and of course she had too many items for her two hands.

There is a plastic bag of stuff sitting on the trunk of my Camaro!!!!111one

As I walk by I pick up the bag and casually drop it on the ground between the cars.

She, of course, asks in a rather disturbed tone (after the glass breaking sound) why I did that. I told her in an even and low tone, "This is not a table. This is not even a typical car ... it's a fricken' Camaro. You should actually be caned for this."

I left her standing there with her mouth agape.

Some peoples kids. I swear.

OK, here's the two problems with this situation:

1. You are correct, the woman should not have put the bag on your Camaro. The world is not her storage facility.

2. Instead of dropping the bag on the ground, you should have asked the woman if it was hers. When she said yes, you should have politely given it to her instead of dropping it on the ground. Nothing would have broken and the situation would not have been as dramatic.

My two cents; hope that helps

"Commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream closer."

Commitment= attending college
Action= graduating
Dream= graduating college with a new Camaro

The only problem with #2 is, next time she'll park next to a ZR-1 and put her bags on the hood...The owner will pull out his / her glock, and proceed to unload.... The way I see it, she more than likely will never do this again, therefore he just saved her life.

I understand that a less aggressive solution could have been better, but it was a knee-jerk reaction....and it was my Camaro.

Thanx for the reminder, though. Good point.

Just tryin' to help out. Logic and reasoning can solve most simple problems, in my opininion

Hey tough guy. Relax. I would have just yelled at her and said please remove your things from my car. Don't exaggerate and say your car is something other than a car, for all intents and purposes, even though the car is special to you. In fact, I wouldn't have said anything to her whatsoever. I then would have picked up her things, gently placed them on the ground, ignored her whining and gesturing and drove away. If she refused to move out of the way, you should have counted down from 3 before running her dumb ass over.

I could have handled it better but I didn't ... shoulda done alotta things in my life different but I didn't.

Not a tough-guy, just over-protective of my possessions.

But that's just me.

DJ

Some people (this woman) have no common sense at all. They are simple morons that blindly go through life with out a freaken clue. You merely awakened her a$$ for a few seconds. I don't think I would have broke her stuff but I would have *****ed her out but good.

The breaking was unintentional. A jar of mustard or pickles or something but I just wanted it off my car and did it in the most expedient manner. Perhaps not the most friendly, but the quickest way.

Besides ... I was pissed!
