I had ninja'd a close parking spot at Costco, Not that I really go for them but it just worked out. So after shopping I am pushing my cart out as I get to my car I find someone waiting for me to pull out (I had not even opened the lift gate yet. So I open the lift gate, unload my costco goods (she is still sitting in her black minivan, now with the blinker on), take my cart to the designated spot. Get the kid from the cart and walk her back (she is less than two so she does not walk that great yet). The lady is still waiting for my spot. Load the kid into the car, get myself in as she glares at me, apparently for wasting her time. Then finally pull out and drive past about 3 spots she could have parked in and been shopping by the time I was done.
