Prolly one of those one car was waiting for the spot and someone else zipped in and flipped them off when they honked.

Too funny.

Maybe if more people got a non-life threatening smack to the head.

There is no doubt, I have certainly felt the same kind of frustration before. I've been in situations where I wanted to jump out and give somebody a slap upside the head. That said, I did not. That's not how we do things in Canada. Here in Canada, we have enough respect for our fellow human beings that even though we see them in the wrong at times, we are strong enough to overlook our emotional responses and choose to act like responsible adults. That's how it's done in Canada.
In my eyes, this is a clear example where deportation should be immediate. Clearly this is an immigrant that has not studied the handbook close enough. Either that, or they have such a disregard and lack of respect for our social standards that in my opinion they do not deserve to live in Canada.

So where do you deport someone who was legally born here when they do this? Because this sure as heck ain't a race thing. Seen my share of all kinds of people doing the same thing including what you seem to deem as "Canadians".

Unrelated / related story.

Last year I stopped and was signaling waiting for a car to leave a spot so I could enter.
Another car approached from a different direction and did the same. (the configuration of the lot made it difficult for him to see me, but I was clearly there first)

We locked eyes, he saw my intentions, and we were at a stand still.
I raised my hand / fist and made the universal jesture for a game of rock / paper / scissors.

We played a game both sitting in our cars deciding who got to pull in. First 2 rounds were tie, and I won the 3rd. We both laughed, gave eachother a thumbs up :up: and no fight needed.
A few others in the parking lot saw what we were doing as well and had a good chuckle along with us.

That is the best way to settle a parking dispute.

Parking lots like Costco should have a pick-a-number as you drive in. lol

I've found that the best solution to this is to aim for as far away from the door as possible (not saying the Visions parking lot, but usually near the corner of Ziprick and Baron) ... never have to vie with another for a spot, not wasting gas driving around, and I get some exercise ...

Same here. I just don't get it why some people drive around in circles and circles just to get one spot closer to the door getting frustrated and more frustrated. Parking further away and walking a couple hundred feet really isn't that hard.

That woman is with the aggressor. When he pushed her thought she'd flatten him.
Over a freakin parking spot, world gets goofier daily.

Would like to know what they are saying in their own language. Buddies not much of a help " stop it now" I would have curbed him

If it's too busy I will just keep on trucking and come back another time. One of the advantages of being retired.
