Today some guy double parked blocking me in my legally parked position. (Many thanks to the stationary store chain that provides parking outside its stores.) Instead of getting pissy, I just asked the clerk to find the driver. The driver came out and we shared a smile and a laugh. He moved his car quickly and everything was fine.
It's taken me a good few years to get to this point. Haven't you been here longer than me?
