Default Is society becoming more and more stupid?

Today I had reinforced to me why I normally don’t go to Wal-Mart. The truly clueless in our society seem to be there in droves! Unfortunately, I had to pick up some special order contacts that for whatever reason could only be mailed to an optometrist. I figured it would be just a 2 minute grab and go so I didn’t take my usual far corner of the parking lot. As I’m leaving I look out to the car and there’s this idiot woman dragging her bags across the hood of my car. She couldn’t get between her 80’s POS minivan and my car, so rather than walk around her car she drags the bags across my car’s nose. I run out to the car, but it’s too late deep gouges and scratches across my hood. Of course I’m infuriated and I yell at the woman. She looks at me like I’m crazy and says, “You shouldn’t have a car like that anyway”. I couldn’t believe it and am still stunned that there are people walking around that stupid. The woman became even more belligerent so I called the police. The police couldn’t do anything, but file a report. With Florida’s “stand your ground” law and all this Treyvon Martin stuff going on I wonder if I could have shot the woman? I don’t mean to make light of the Treyvon Martin tragedy, but we’ve got to find a way to rid the planet of complete and total morons like this Wal-Mart woman! BTW when the police got there she denied everything that she had previously admitted to me.

not that what she did was right or that it matters, but out of curiosity, how did you park your car?

I think more and more people are just ignorant. They could give a rats arse about everyone else and only care for their own benefit.

I guess I was optimistic about common sense but a lot of people just dont have it.

Funny you mention walmart cause my last encounter there, someone pulled through an aisle like the store was on fire and ran into my cart with their cart......didnt say a thing...just paused for a second and carried on their merry way

I hear you and could not agree more after today, but those &^*% contact lenses had to be mailed there. I guess the moral is if you're forced to go take the wife's car?

I was dead center in the space equidistant front to rear. To be honest when parking I was way more concerned about being dinged from the side. I never even considered someone dragging their bags across my hood. I mean good Lord if you can't make it walk around. What is it 10 more steps?

And exactly what did you expect from Wal-Mart? Valet parking with people that actually give a shite about your automobile. And what in the world are you doing going to a Wal-Mart optometrist? Oh yes, it's only your eyes, good thing to save money on.

Yeah right blame the victim! I never said the contacts were for me! I was just picking them up. Does your Mom drive a POS 80's mini van?

She resents your success. In fact she hates you for it.

At the same time, she wants to reap the rewards from it.

She's another of those who wants to ride on the coattails of the "do-ers" in this world.

Is Rearden metal good?

Who is John Galt?

Part of the reason I always try to avoid wal-mart at all costs. On the few occassions that I do end up there, I try to park far away from other people in an area that most would consider inconvenient to park. I'd rather be inconvenienced by walked more than inconvenienced because some clown was being careless.

Oh great I was just planning out my evening and thinking of how I need to go to Wal-Mart b/c I've been delaying it! Sounds like I'm going to parking WAAAAY in the back.

just cause its walmart doesnt mean the optometrists dont have to be doctors. They still have to go through just as much schooling as any other optometrist. The reason they are working there could be any number of things....

Unfortunately in today's society there are hordes of people who don't care about others, let alone themselves. They view anyone who is successful as the enemy as their own lives are nothing but empty shells.
Once in this country a person would work to lift themselves and their families to a higher level, hoping that their children would have things better than they did. Now it is how do I tear down the person who has made something of themselves so that are at my level.
The current political situation now just feeds on that. Class warfare is the rule.

I see it a lot also. Just driving down the road it is not so much as the goofballs in the crappy ricers wanting to tangle with you, but the lowlifes who just want to slow you down and get in your way as they can't have what you have.

Oh well, sorry for the rant.

Freddy

Yeah! Who in their right mind would think the president of the Harvard Law Review and a professor would know what the **** he was talking about. Must have been all those crazy white people with their newfangled college degrees that voted him in.

Back on topic: You have a police report of damage. Contact her insurance company, seek full restitution for the damages. Ensure them that you can and will file suit if this is not handled in an expedient manor.
