ONLY IN FLORIDA - PART THREE
Last week I got yelled at!

I can't remember a time that I ever got yelled at - I was a good little girl so my parents never yelled at me, I was a well behaved student so the teachers never had cause to yell at me, I was a good worker so my employers never yelled at me BUT here in Florida it's a different story.

Here's what happened:

There is a very popular privately owned deli in a near-by small shopping mall, the lot is small so getting a parking space is a challenge. They sell all kinds of goodies that makes life easy when you don't feel like cooking. From the business that they do, LOTS of people that live in this area don't like to cook!

Well, one day I decided to get myself over there and buy some of "that good stuff." As usual the parking lot was pretty full so I had to drive around a few times until I spied a couple going to their car - aha - I found a spot - put my blinker on and waited for them to pull out.

It looked to me like the couple was in their mid-80's, she had a walker and he was the strong one putting the groceries in the car.

People are very impatient down here and the person in the car behind me started to honk his horn, he wanted me to move on but I wasn't going to budge, he was just going to have to wait!! He was so angry that he finally got out of his car and started to yell at me!

I stood my ground and eventually the man and his wife pulled out of that parking spot and it was MINE!!

I got yelled at two more times last week but I think you get the picture.

This is life in sunny Florida

Hello Millie! I don't remember quite how I came upon your blog, but I added it to my GoogleReader and love reading your posts, especially the ones set here in Florida.

We've been here nearly 10 yrs now. Let me apologize for the rude person who honked his horn and then actually yelled. Florida loves you Millie!
 
MIllie, you should stand your ground!! Don't let them try to scare you!
 
Some people should never get driver's licenses. Their lives are too crazy. When someone yells at me, it ruins my whole day.
 
Good for you; standing your ground. I am proud of you, Millie.

It makes me angry when elders are rude. (you didn't say the man was an elder, but I assume he was.) They are a minority that give the rest of us a bad name.
 
You go, girlfriend!!!! I'm proud of you for standing your ground!!!
 
They were probably from around here. Half of the NY metro area moved to FL and rudeness is too often the order of the day in these parts, especially when behind the wheel of the car. Good for you! Usually when people aren't used to being yelled at they're easily intimidated by it. Obviously not true in your case.
 
@Tabor You have control over your emotions. Don't let them affect how you feel.
 
What a jerk that guy was. I despise people like that.

Good for you for standing your ground.
 
The real reason I'll bet is he wanted the place himself. Otherwise he could back up, or wait to get by. He probably thought he could intimidate you into moving. Good girl Millie!
 
I always find it incredible how rude people can turn when they want a parking spot! Your follower was no exception. Good for you for holding your ground! :)
 
Times are getting frustrating, but people need to remeber manners!
