As I nosed the spy car into a parking spot at the grocery
store yesterday I noticed that the man parked in the
adjoined space ahead of me was getting into his car.
"Oh good," I thought, "I'll be able to pull ahead!
No worries about backing up and squashing somebody
when I leave."
Our cars were sitting bumper to bumper so I kept
my hands on the steering wheel and peered at him
He yawned, leaned an arm out the window and gazed
blankly off to the side, avoiding my gaze.
"Oh rats," I thought, "He's waiting for somebody,
probably his wife is in the store getting her groceries."
I sighed in resignation thinking of all the flattened
bodies I'd be leaving in my wake when I left and
I turned the spy car off.
The minute I shut my car down he smiled and
So I shot his back wheels out.
The female police officer who arrived shortly after
complimented me on my restraint and gave him a
ticket for being a public nuisance.
