We shouldn't have done it, in retrospect, but we were feeling adventurous.
While trying to park, Mom got herself into a little bit of a bind. She couldn't stop because of the way she was situated in the lane, but couldn't keep going because a pedestrian was trying to cross.
Long story short (but definitely not the end of the world), the pedestrian had to step back on to the curb to make room for us. She, apparently, was offended by this and flipped Mom off.
Imagine it! A pedestrian flipping off a driver--practically in slow motion, or, under 10mph anyway. I would NEVER be that brave.
Well, we spent an hour or so in the store doing our shopping and while Mom waited in the checkout line, I ran back up to customer service to pick something up. As I made my way back to where Mom was waiting, I saw the girl who flipped us off.
A 1-gallon jug of tomato juice had just exploded all over her groceries.
Sucks, don't it?
