Another Jackwagon

(Monday 16 May 2016) by Rick Clot
OK, so here's another one that can be filed under the category "Just when you think you've seen it all". I was at the airport the other night around 11:00PM picking up two people who were flying in from JFK. They had just called me and said they were waiting for their luggage to get to Baggage Claim and it would be any minute. So I left the cell phone lot and pulled up to the curb in front of the terminal to wait figuring it wouldn't be too long. With the exception of a taxi cab 100 yds. away, I was the only one there. I'm going to repeat that because it's important to know that I was THE ONLY ONE THERE. The airport was like a ghost town. There were two people on the sidewalk about 15' away waiting for their ride. After a few minutes a van arrived for these folks and for some inexplicable reason the driver pulled up to within 6-8 ft. from the back of my vehicle. When he got out he politely informed me that when he was leaving I would have to move my car forward so he would have room to get out. Oh did I mention that I was the only one there? At that point I politely told him what he could do to himself, a feat that I'm pretty sure is anatomically impossible now that I think about it. I further explained to him using some choice expletives that he wouldn't have had this problem in the first place if he didn't pull so close to my car. He loaded up his passengers and sped away into the night with no further incident. Sometimes I think I have a sign on me that says "Please Pick on Me". And I was just minding my own business.

Until Next Time,
I love these people,
