Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/31/18

What is it that disappears when you make a U-turn?  A parking space.”   —   Source Unknown

(This is part of the driving branch of Murphy’s Law!  It’s a good thing, for me, that civilization has brought us to where we are, because my predatory skills are sorely lacking.  Even though the women were supposed to be the gatherers, while the men were the hunters, I’m ALWAYS losing a parking spot to some sneaky woman!  I just don’t have those instincts.  I almost always end up parking in the hinterlands, and have to trek in from the boonies.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Well, unc, maybe your uncles were negligent in their duties to you by not warning that women can be more predatory than they appear.

    I can’t remember how many bargain basement sales I showed for only to have some tiny old lady accost me from behind and snatch away an item I’d been searching for and finally found at a rare sale.

    She wasn’t carrying that umbrella for the rain.

    lwc, this has happened to me as well…one time at Target, with my young kids with me…the snatching shopper (a woman) literally did the same thing…so I calmly and cheerfully told her with a smile on my face, ‘thank you for showing my children how NOT to be’. ….Same thing with a parking space, UR, same Target in MN…waited patiently for a parking spot, signal on…an older woman zoomed down and took the spot .0002 seconds after the occupant had pulled her car out. As fate would have it, we ended up getting a spot nose-to-nose with her car…as she was getting out, for some reason, she felt a need to give me what-for…which puzzled me since I didn’t react much, other than a surprised frown, no middle fingers involved or anything ha…to which once again, I said the same thing- ‘thank you for showing my children how NOT to be’. … If needed, I would have also added to both women ‘your mother must be so proud of you’, but they both slunk away. =)
