Have you ever had one of those occasions when someone said or did something to hurt your feelings, make you mad, or just downright annoy you, and you were just at a lost for words? Usually you think of the snappy comeback 24 hours later while in the shower. Invariably the witty retort is a gem and you are left with the knowledge that you are capable of the speaking in these awkward situations but will never get the chance to speak your mind to the offender. Well today I had a small victory in this category. I dropped the kids of at camp and began the mad rush to get all my errands done in the three hours they are there. I zoom in Kmart to buy a vacuum cleaner belt and miraculously find the one I need. I return to my car (mini van) only to find another crappy old van has parked at an angle right next to me. I am not exaggerating the rear end of this van was a mere 6 inches from mine. Needless to say I had to walk around to the front of my car and squeeze in to my driver side (seriously, there was definitely rubbing!). Now I cant pull forward because there is a light post in my way and I am afraid to pull back because he is so close. After cursing a few times and seeing my precious three hours slipping away I suck in my breath and start to pull out. Thankfully my car has a back up camera and sonar warning bells but it wasnt easy. Now I agree this is not the end of the world or starvation in Africa but just an inconvenience to be endured but I just felt compelled to leave a note. Yeah, yeah, I know passive aggressive but gosh it made me feel better. I said: Thank you for parking your van so close to mine. Without your inconsiderateness I would have never been able to confirm that my diet is working! Geez! Has anyone else had the opportunity to say something perfect at the perfect time?
