How Do You Handle The Rude Holiday Driver At The Mall?

I am always a a loss this time of year. Inevitably, I have that scene in the crowded mall parking lot where someone steals the parking space I have patiently been waiting in line to get. Patiently, with blinker on, line of cars behind me, I sit waiting for someone to back out only to have a car zip around the corner and snag it right out from under me! I beep, I sit, I stare, and YES, I even roll down the window to ask why they ignored my blinker and stole my spot (I even consider describing the person and the car on The Shawn Ireland Show the next day–of course I wouldn’t though!). But, as though I am transparent, the guilty party, shrugs, and walks off!
I don’t get it…I really don’t! It wasn’t a Black Friday Sale! It wasn’t Christmas Eve and the stores were closing! How does someone in their rude peanut-sized, compassionless brain think it is OK to do that to other people? Oh wait, I just answered my own question. That saved me a $135 call to a therapist! No wonder they call it retail therapy!

Does this happen to you? How do you handle it? Let me know…I could use your tips!
