A day I could have done without: Part One

Welp, let me tell you about my Friday.

The day was fine.  Normal.  In the evening a friend of mine, M, came over to pick me up, we were going to have dinner with another friend.  Sean had Saturday off, so I wasn't worried about staying out late or anything.  Said friends and I visited in the restaurant until a little after 10, when the friend we had met there had to go to work.  So my M and I stayed and chatted a bit longer, then decided to go to the 24 hour Shopper's in our city because our conversation had swung to makeup.  So we get there, go in, wander around for about 40 minutes maybe, and we come out.  The way the building is situated, the doors face east, the entrance to the parking lot is to the north, and there is a sidewalk outside the doors of the building where people park.  We were walking out beside a SUV that was parked there, and this guy comes screeching in to the parking lot, does a full 360 and slams into a parking space, dropping off some passengers.  At first we thought, "Okay, first snow of they year, it's icy, guy is from BC, he doesn't know how to drive in snow well."  So we walk to M's car, which was parked away from the building.  We are looking at his license plate, because it WAS a little reckless, but it's pretty automatic to look at license plates in that situation.

Well, I guess he saw us looking.

So he whips out of the parking spot, whips around the back end of M's car, seriously, only a few feet away from it, AIMS HIS JEEP AT US, and guns it.  He cranks the wheel right at the last minute, ending up missing us (literally, us - we were both on the passenger side of the vehicle because she was unlocking it for me) by all of 2 or 3 feet.  At which he continued spinning around and slammed back into his parking spot.

To which we got into M's car, locked the doors and called 911, and hoped he didn't do anything stupid until the police showed up.

Continued tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.  ;)

Goddess Bless,


  1. Holy crap! And to leave us off on a cliff hanger. I'll wait with baited breath for the rest of the story.

  2. Ha! I've decided it will be a three parter. Now just to hope that my internet works long enough that I can get them up on time. ;)
