LOL...I hate to give Neil more ammunition against women drivers, but....

I've actually parked this way before!  THIS IS TRUE!!

I worked in the Capitol Building in Tallahassee and parking was horrible!  We had assigned parking in a tiny, tiny parking lot.  This jerk took my parking spot, so I parked on top of him!  It looked sort of like this.

Yep, I'm serious.  It didn't look quite as bad as this photo, but I did run over his car.  He had one of those really old cars that was built like a tank.  It didn't hurt his car, but it crushed in the whole back side of my truck!

Haha!  That was a very long time ago....I was young.  I don't get angry anymore.  Now I've perfected the art of getting even. :)

Come on now!  I'm not that bad!  I've been working very hard to overcome my vehicular tourettes!  I haven't lost my temper on the road in ages...and that bridge incident was months ago.

LOL LOL...Road rage much eh?????  Carolyn......Was this person as mad as you were???

I would tell what happened next, but I wouldn't want the younger ones to think less of me.

That is an excellent idea!  I'm sure Nic has several hiding in his closet that I could use.  I think I'll try it tomorrow.

She sounds like great fun!!!  I bet she wouldn't be afraid to go to the mall with me!

S.W.A.T? Someone With A Toyota? Or, in Carolyn's case, Someone With Advanced Tourette's (vehicular)  :D
