oh nothing

Today I:

Watched Hannah Montana.
We hired a new girl (she’s 16 years old) and we take our lunch break at the same time (she picked it- not me!)

Went to An Olde Fashioned Christmas in Los Olivos.
And took some pretty terrible pictures.

Started my Christmas cards.
This makes me happy. (If I don’t have your address you should sent it to me!)

Called the police on someone who illegally parked in a handicap space.
I have never, ever called the police on someone but I hate, hate, hate it when people use handicap spots when they don’t need them. I mean, come ON!

Now before you think I’m just a psycho this is what happened…

I pulled into The Coffee Bean to buy my mom and new thermos for Christmas. There’s NEVER parking there so I pulled in and just waited until someone pulled out. As I was getting out of my car this woman pulled into the handicap space next to me and went in. She was sort of half in the space and half in the blocked off space next to it. She went in before me so I walk up to her and say something along the lines of “Excuse me, you realize you’re parked in a handicap space don’t you?” I was trying to be nice but was a cup of coffee so important that she has to park in a handicap spot?? Her reply was that she was mostly in the space next to it and that I should “mind my own business.” Ew. I explained to her that the space next to it is what made it a handicap space and that if someone with a wheelchair or walker parked there they wouldn’t be able to get out. At this point I’m still being nice. Then she just got snotty and said she wasn’t going to be long and she’d probably be gone before “any cripples showed up.” Oh no she didn’t! And that point she huffed off to the the bathroom. So I walked outside, called the Santa Barbara police and reported her. I didn’t even think they’d take the call seriously… not that I blame them. They have more important things to do I’m sure. (well I thought they did) I went back in got my mom’s gift and she came out and ordered. I went into the bathroom and when I came out she was still in line waiting for her drink. I went outside as a police car pulled up behind her car, got out, and proceeded to write her a ticket. Ha!

At that point I kind of felt bad and rushed to my car before the woman came out to beat my face. I didn’t think the police would actually show up… Maybe it was a slow night?

Take that snotty lady!

Edit:: I won’t be making a habit out of this!

Sorry if you all think I’m a big jerk… but sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do.

  1. I hope you dont mind me reading your blog. I’m a friend of Anjeanette and Daniel Pout.I loved what you did to the nasty lady. I’m English and once when visiting my sister in Utah my brother in law (now ex) parked in a disabled spot. When I pointed it out to him he began walking like a disabled person and laughed at my shocked face. I was so very very shocked and disapointed in him and he never quite shone so bright again for me.

  4. Well done. I’ve always wanted to do something about it when I see people park in disabled spaces. Good job. I wonder if she’ll ever park there again.
