Why people are so selfish?! To day i want to go out with my car to the mall, i was so lucky that i wasn't in rush.. Any way i was surprised to see a car blocking my building park exit! I couldn't go out with my car so i walk by foot to the mall, i was very mad all the way and thought to may self how people be so mean and selfish! Now i wanna know what would you do if some one block your parking somehow?

Maybe the person who blocked the exit was selfish and just didn't care, or maybe it was an accident and happened because the person was in a rush and simply didn't notice the exit. It is possible that (s)he didn't do it on purpose, but I would still get angry if it happened to me. I live in a village in the countryside, and walking isn't an option. I can't walk to the nearest town instead of driving there, because it is too far way. If it happened to me I would walk around from house to house and ask them it is it was their car in order to find the owner.

I am sure that you are living in a cool place, i like village in the countryside it usually more quiet and romantic than the big city, it probably will take you hours to go from house to house to ask who's car is it..

I would have gone looking for the person. If they were in a house near mine I would find them and tell them to move their car. If I could not find them then I would have called the police to get it towed because you are not supposed to block driveways. It does not make sense to me to hold it in and do nothing.

Call for towing is a great idea, but the problem is that the police have a lot of things on their mind and they don't send to towed so fast, and usually until the towed is coming the parking car is running away

Things like these can really be annoying but it would probably be better to just try to understand. Sometimes, there are situations that go out of our control and there are probably reasons behind it which we cannot be just plain mad at. Maybe, the car had engine troubles or the owner was in an emergency rush and had to leave/park his vehicle there. Anyway, I just hope you've cooled down now.

Yes now i feel better, by the way i always try to understand other people, like if some one drive very fast and "cut" me on the road i always imagine that maybe is wife is pregnant or something, but park on a place that block so many people is very rude and selfish..

Wow I do hate it when people are inconsiderate as why would they think it is okay to block a car in a mall as there is no way of telling when you were ready to leave. I would be fuming but I would have gone directly to the security office so they could immediately tow and or move it, as there would be no telling if they would come out in minutes and or hours later.
