Selfish Idiot

The other day I was at a strip mall in Sherman Oaks to get sushi during lunch time.  Obviously the parking lot was packed.  There was one space that barely fit my compact vehicle because the idiots on both side were park improperly.  So as I go in and made the order for my sushi, I noticed that two Asian guys were hovering around my car.  It became apparent to me that the vehicle on my right belonged to them and the driver can not get the driver side.  He could still get in via the passenger side cause they left a big space there.  So I made my way out to back my car so the driver can enter his side.  He was glaring at me angrily for parking so close to the driver's door.  Mind you I was parked properly centered between the lines of the parking space.  He was the one improperly parked.  As I got out of my vehicle after I moved it to another space the was now open, he was still looking at my angrily.  So I told him that I was park properly and that he had no right to be angry at me.  He insisted that the car on his right was parked closed to the line forcing him to park his car improperly.  I argued that if another person does not obey the rule, it does not give him an excuse not to obey the rule either.  He insisted he can cause he did not start this.  Our encounter ended with me walking away as we called each other profanities.

First his argument of parking improperly was flawed.  If person A steals my belonging, it does not give me a valid excuse to steal the belonging of person B.  Any sane intelligent person knows this.  Second, he could have still entered his car through the passenger's side.  Third, he could have still parked properly by letting his passenger exit first before entering the parking space if it was tight.  He was just being selfish without regards to another who would need the parking space on the left side.

In conclusion, he was a selfish idiot.
