Things That Make My Head Explode Part Two: The Double Parker – But This is Worse

Driving me crazy, pun intended, since 2007.

Thanks to a reader for sending from the Hill East Listserv – do not read if you are on blood pressure medication:

“On 15th at around C SE, I was driving home from grocery shopping. A large SUV was simply stopped in the middle of the road, hazards on, while the driver stood there and chatted with some people she knew. Totally out of her car, just standing on the road chatting. When I pulled up behind her, she gave me a look and told me, “You can wait.” I tapped on my horn, and this enraged her. She flipped me off, and told me, “Now I’m gonna waste time just to punish you.”

For the few blocks it took me to get home, she drove at about three miles an hour in front of me. I got a picture of her license plate. This is illegal, right? Is there anything I can do?

At the very least, if you’re someone out there who thinks you’re more important than anyone else, and that all of traffic can just stop for all you care as long as you get what you want, just know that I personally think you’re a selfish and inconsiderate person.”
