I agree with you completely...that is one thing that pisses me off to no end...I had a similar thing happen to me...I backed into the parking spot, went inside the local parts store, as I'm walking out this guy pulls right up beside me. so close I couldn't get in my car and I asked the guy to move his car so I could get in, he asked me why...so I told him that he pulled in frontwards, I backed in, he could get into his drivers side, I couldn't and I didn't want to dent my door or his while I was getting in...he told me that my car was old anyway, why would I care. I looked at him and said.."yes, my car is old, in fact it's older than you are and yet I gave you and your car enough respect to ask you to move, how about a little of the same courtesy."
I got the finger, to which I relied "I think your # 1 too," as the guy jumped in his car, he slammed it into reverse, moved over about 15 inches, got out and asked me if I was F@#*ing happy. I told him, "I'm always happy, it's just my nature, give it a try." Now why does that seem to piss these people off more than I am when they park that close to me?
