Saved-From-Fool

On June 8 I left Save-On-Foods to find an apparently brand-new, bright-red Ford pick-up diagonally parked across my car.

On June 8 at 3:14 p.m., to be precise, I left Save-On-Foods to find an apparently brand-new, bright-red Ford pick-up truck diagonally parked across the rear bumper of my car.

There was no “L” plastered on the truck but obviously the inconsiderate, inept, thoughtless and (other vile expletives deleted) owner has a lot to learn; both driving and social skills needed.

Even after repeated announcements over the Save-On-Foods public address system, the possibly stone-deaf or uncaring truck owner failed to attend the site in order to help safely explicate my vehicle from his poorly parked truck.

Huge thanks are owed to the caring staff for their offer to cover the cost of spoiled frozen goods (perhaps the truck owner would care to reimburse Save-On-Foods) and also for their helpful guidance which allowed me to navigate the mere inches of space needed to escape from my parking place which of course was being shared by the truck owned by the uncaring, inconsiderate driver who obviously needs to take parking lessons and acquire his/her “L.”
