Don't make me do it...


Must vent…

My apartment complex is gated of course, as usual, and I have not yet bought the automatic gate opener thingie. So, each time I want to go into the gate I have to pull up to the key pad and punch in the code. It might be good to mention that the key pad is WAAAAY up there and my car is WAAAAY down here so it is quite a reach to be able to punch in the keys, especially if I am trying to avoid popping my tires on the curb as most people would.

Anyway, more often than not I will pull up to the key pad, struggle to punch in the code and look to my right only to see cars blowing by me to get into the gate before me. EXCUSE ME?? You are telling me that I have to go through all the trouble to get the damn thing open and then YOU are going to peel out in front of me!! Oh, hell no…

But what am I to do? In my perfectly illogical and irrational dream world I would gas it and cut them off (their car is no match for this V8), all the while smiling of course. ;) BUT this would be rude (hint to the masses) and I would feel bad for doing it, not to mention the damage it may cause. Wouldn’t it feel good though?!?! I guess I just have to let it go but this only confirms that some people are incredibly out of it.

XOXO

so I live in a gated community as well... and I have an opener ( thankfully didnt have to buy mine... phew) and when I see someone by the keybox I'll gladly let them in... what I can't stand is the people who dont live in our complex lining up on the side of the curb waiting for people to come home and then slip in. How do I know YOU are not a serial killer!!!! I don't WANT you in here if you are not meant to be in here. That makes me mad!! :)
But id' let you in the gate !!

OMG the sme thing happens to me and I have the SAME reaction. Last week AFTER I punched in the code this woman came up next to me and tried to cut me off. Like you, I am afraid of damaging my car so she won but I was pissed! I then let my New Yorker out and beeped my horn at her to let her know how wrong she was. hahaha thats such a pet peeve of mine!

Same thing happens to me at our complex!! It makes me LIVID! I don't know why it bothers me so much, but I will just tailgate them all the way to their parking spot! My husband thinks I'm insane, but I just think thats soo rude!!
