To reverse? Or not to reverse. + Piss off the person waiting!

Last vent of the evening! While going to Whole Foods during rush hour dinner time. We patiently waited for this lady to go in her car to reverse. Her brake/reverse light was on... Cars were building up behind us because they want parking too. We literally waited 5-10 minutes and she kept braking/reversing like she's going to reverse BUT SHE DIDN'T. Finally, my boyfriend just drove off and we found a VIP parking which I call it (the very first spot). As I got out of the car, I walked around to check and SHE STILL DID NOT REVERSE. I freaking HATE people like that. No, the sun was not shinning to look like the brake/reverse light was on. SHE ACTUALLY WAS ON REVERSE. It was very annoying. I also find that if PEOPLE see you waiting for their spot, they will take their sweet time. Some are nice and will try to hurry but for the most part I have seen many will take their sweet time.. If you're not going to reverse, then don't start your car + reverse + brake + etc! Eventually my boyfriend saw her reverse a long time time later.

That is so annoying! I'm glad you two decided to finally just drive off. She should've just reversed quickly or just stayed there. So annoying.

If you start your car and you do not move you are fined here, you are polluting the air for no reason.

Oh wow! I did not know that. That's awesome. She started her car, didn't move...... for like EVER. And it wasn't hot so there was no need to run a/c. But she was in reverse, then brake.. repeatedly. It was annoying.

@infatuatedbby Some people are really rude, they do not care at all about the others.

@LadyDuck Yes you're right! If I walk out of the store seeing someone waiting for my spot, I will make an effort to get going. Otherwise if I'm not planning to go, I'll let them know.

that kind of person is very annoying, what if you couldn't hold your temperance, then misunderstanding ensued.

Was she on the phone? My husband gets PO'd over things like that - I tell him 'go find another spot'.

Whatever she was doing, obviously she was oblivious to how annoying her actions were...

Yeah, I don't get people like that. Just pull out. Probably too busy texting.

That's a good point OR touching up her make up? Who knows! She clearly saw us wait for her. If she wasn't going, then quit the freaking reverse light on, brake, so annoying.

I think this lady could use some "driving lessons" to freshen up on her skills.

Totally! At least NOT turn on your engine as if you were going or something.

That's annoying alright. I agree with your statement that they see you waiting for their spot, they will take their time, me I will make the effort to do the opposite

Yes, it was totally annoying. I agree - if I see someone waiting, I will make an effort to get going. OR, If I know I am not going to go (like put something in my trunk, or wait in the car) I will physically go out and hand motion them to keep going.

Seriously! She saw us wait, signal for her spot. If she was going, she could have done a hand motion so we can keep going. But nope - she goes in her car + starts her engine but doesn't go!
