I don't know what it is about holiday weekends that makes people so cranky. And mean. It's not any one's fault but their own that they waited until the last minute to shop. Today, I had to run to Walmart to get a couple things for a Scentsy party I was having at my home. I parked and was on my way into the store. I looked before stepping into the crosswalk, there was a car a ways down, but surely they would stop. It's a crosswalk, it's the rule. And it's a parking lot, there are people everywhere. But no, this lady sped up actually, starring me down the entire time. She saw me, I saw her. I continued on my path to the door because I'm stubborn and was on a mission. Yet still, she continued at her too-fast-for-a-parking-lot-rate-of-speed, still starring me down. And just when you think she would stop, she swerved around me and only slowed down to look at me as she passed.
I was baffled and pissed. I yelled a few choice words at her and then continued on into the store. I walked around for a little bit still confused about this lady's rudeness and a bit angry too.
Here's the thing. It's a parking a lot for one. Second, I'm a pedestrian. I'm not jay-walking or doing anything dangerous. I am walking to the entrance of a store where it's clearly marked with a stop sign. What is so wrong with this lady that she can't be bothered to stop? Is it really hard enough to take the seconds it takes to actually...STOP. Especially where there are bound to be people going into and leaving the store. Seriously, what is wrong with people?!!
I just don't know. I don't get people like that. Maybe she didn't do her Easter shopping. I don't know, but I really don't care what her reason. She should have stopped. Clearly, she's a jerk. And as I've stated before, I'm a big believer in karma. What goes around, comes around.
