Yelling at me for parking in a non handicap spot!

I went to the bank after work to cash my cheque and put money in my account. I pulled into the spot and there is 1 handicap spot and its clearly labelled. Its on the building wall as well as painted in the spot. Mind you we live in a small small town so its not some big city. There was a guy in the spot beside and I got out this lady was screaming at both of us for parking in handicap. Now both of us told her it wasnt and it would be clearly labelled. I didnt want to argue and was in a hurry to come home to finish my assignment due tonight. She blocked both of us in and was screaming at us. Finally the guy yelled at her to move and she eventually did. She was trying to follow me home, so since I know the backroads I took the scenic tour home going up and down different roads until I lost her.

Gosh! That woman was nuts, wasn't she? Why was she so out of her head? Following you was dangerous... what if she followed a killer instead of you... you know? That's just dangerous.

I thought the samething she needs to relax. I mean if me or the other guy was in a handicap spot sure its one thing, but neither of us were. She was yelling at us for no reason. But I agree what it I attacked her or something you never know now a days.

Even if it WAS a handicapped spot, what business is it of hers to yell at anybody for parking there? Personally I never park in handicapped spots but have seen lots of people who do. Do I make it my business to yell at them and follow them home? Ummmm, no, I don't. She obviously has issues...

Wow, that lady is unbelievable. What does she wants anyway? Is she a handicapped who was trying park on the spot but wasn't able to? Good thing she wasn't able to follow you home otherwise it will be really creepy of some sort.

I dont think she was handicap as she moves rather well. But neither myself nor the other guy were in the handicap spot nor even blocking it (clear as day). I think she had nothing better to do and made herself look like an idiot.

Some people have nothing better to do with their time than to stick their noses into other peoples business... Fair enough if she was disabled and you had parked in that spot, but when neither was the case then she should have minded her own business...

I agree she has nothing better to do and in turn going bugging others. I mean sure if I were in the handicap spot I would agree with agrueing and sticking up for someone but I wasnt.

I agree since neither of us were in handicap spots. She just made herself look like more of an idiot.

That is sad that someone yelled at you for parking in a non-handicap spot. I could understand if you were in a handi-cap spot and she was upset that would be different. I know that when Randy and I both go shopping and he comes into the store he parks in the handicap spot (yes he has a plaque), but if he does not come in with me he parks in a non-handicap spot. I remember one time Randy and I went shopping and there was an elderly couple who was parked in a handicap spot and there were no other handi-cap spots. the wife yelled at her husband and said if you are not coming with me then get your buns out of this space and give it to this gentleman (meaning Randy). I am glad that she did not follow you home and that the other man yelled back and told her to move.

I couldnt believe this lady I mean sure if I was in a handicap spot understandable. But I wasnt nor was the other guy eithr she was just wasting her breathe. I know my Dad has a handicap pass for his leg and even with it he gets yelled at until he rolls his pant leg up showing his fake leg.

How rude and obnoxious of the lady to yell at you for something you didn't even do. Have been in that position several times, and for different reasons. I have gone off on them back sometimes and other times I just ignored them. I figure they have mental problems.

Some people are a little unstable I belive and need some anger management around here for sure I had some on freak out the other day because I had to turn left into my work which means slowing down and waiting for a break in traffic to cross 89 to the north side this is how I get to work every day now this person started laying on there horn while my left signal is on and they were freaking out laying on horn and yelling out the Window when I signal 1km before I start slowing down he could easily have moved to the right lane to avoid having to slow down or stop behind me instead he pulled up so close behind me there were about an inch between our bumpers and kept laying on the horn I just ignored him the worst part is I'm pulling into a vet clinic he didn't know I was going to work what if I was a person rushing in with an emergency how inconsiderate of this guy

That woman sounds absolutley whacked! Even IF you made a mistake and parked in a handicapped spot...I can't imagine acting like that...just nuts. I thought you were going to say you were going to say you were handicapped and chose to park in a non-handicapped spot which in most cases would not matter but when parking is very limited, it kind of does. Even at that...her reacton was overly rididulous. Actually it was creepy. She was ging to follow you home over this? I can't even imagine following anyone home over any infraction. Now that is just crazy...really crazy. So was this woman handicapped herself? Or was she just playing self-appointed parking lot police?

That sounds like a purposeless woman who is bored of her life and want to feel like she did something with meaning. People like that abuse the niceness in others since usually people are slow to anger, so she can get away before most people feel the rising anger on their throats. When I was younger I was stepped on a few times by people like that, but after a while I learned that screaming back insults instantly allows me to sleep better afterwards, so now I would scream my head of to that woman, loud enough to make a scene and embarrass her, with enough anger that she would run away scared. Because I know now that people like that woman aren't standing up for what they believe in, they are simply using whatever they are screaming about as an excuse to get confrontational with others. Knowing this makes it a competition, and I hate to lose :p. Next time, scream like a madman and go back home feeling fulfilled and happy, instead of holding it up being nice and feeling angry at home for the rest of the day. Niceness is overrated :).

i know that you are not supposed to park in a handicap spot, but geez! she didn't have to try to follow you all the way home. maybe she was trying to get your license plate?

People can be touchy about those handicap places. I know a man who had a liver transplant who got a sticker. One day, someone was screaming at him. I guess they couldn't know about his recent transplant. Anyway, it made my friend feel bad about getting to use those handicap spots. Of course, if the guy complaining had to go through that liver transplant, he might have not argued so much.

bI would have went off on her for that. she would not have wanted to block another car from another moving person. If she can't read that is her darn problem. and following you home I would have drove slow so she could keep up. then when I got home on my propert I would have given her something she would never forget.
