Peace be With You

I went down to the Corner Bar on Saturday to watch the Gopher\Badger game with a group of friends who were in town. Wanting to be responsible I pulled into the cheap lots and asked the attendant if it was ok to leave my car overnight. He said yes and directed me to a "special" spot where I would not be towed.

I pulled in next two a building and without a further thought abandoned my car and went to meet my friends.

Returning Sunday morning I found my car blocked in on all sides...4 cars surrounding myself....4 cars...the only cars in the whole lot...were circling my car...

fuck...fuck...fuck..

I went into the only building the only building to which the cars could have belonged and it was a mission outreach building and there were a few people getting ready for Sunday service. I inquired if they knew who's cars were in the lot and if I could have one of them move one so I could get out.

It got real quiet...

The director appeared and stated simply, "I wanted to get a look at the son of bitch who thought he could park in my spot."

I would have thought it was a joke if another one of the other missionary's didn't have to step in between us and start telling him to cool down as he launched into a verbal triad of which the likes I have never seen before.

I am glad cooler heads prevailed and some of the men did move their cars and let me out..

As I was pulling out he was banging on a sign that Said Mission Director Parking. It was quite a sight, "I simply rolled down my window and said "Peace Be With You" As I pulled away. I could actually see him jumping up and down in my rear view mirror in anger...

That is the kind of guy that gives God a bad name.

But, it's wicked funny that of all people this could have happened to, it happened to you. I'm just surprised Rocket wasn't in the car with you!!!

I think the attendant was at fault. Too bad the angry guy didn't care about the attendant having directed you there - I think the real issue is the relationship between the parking attendant and the funeral guy.
