Yesterday some friends and I sold our books at the BX on Peterson AFB. We met a lot of great people and had a ton of fun.
As we were getting ready to leave we saw the police arrive in the parking lot. A woman had pulled into a parking spot and hit a pedestrian. The woman responded by getting angry AT THE PEDESTRIAN, We heard that she ate her lunch in her car while waiting for the police and the ambulance to get there. As we left, she was yelling at the police.
Really, people. There is no good reason to hit someone standing in a parking lot. Not ever. And the appropriate response is an abject apology, grovelling, and possibly tears. You do not get to yell at your victim. And yelling at the cops is never a good idea.
As I was driving off all I could think was: her momma must be so proud.
