Try A Current Affair or Today Tonight, they feed on this sort of stuff.

Nominating my co-worker.

We do not have assigned parking spaces at work. Parking is first come, first served. Those of us who get here before 8:00 a.m. have our pick of pretty much whatever parking spot we want, since there are maybe 3 of us who are here around that time and we tend to park in the same spots every day. I do it because it helps me remember where I parked as our lot is pretty big, but I don't mind parking elsewhere if I have to.

Well, one of the other early arriving co-workers has determined that the spot she parks in every day is HER spot, and becomes very upset if someone else happens to park in it. We had someone new start, who also gets here before 8:00, who parked in co-worker's favorite spot one day. Co-worker actually confronted her about it and told her to stop parking there, because it's HER spot and NO ONE ELSE can park in it, and it's VERY RUDE to park in HER SPOT. New person just shrugged and started parking elsewhere.

We are having construction going on to fix some bad storm damage to the facade of the building. A construction worker parked in co-worker's self-proclaimed spot one morning. Co-worker seethed about it all day, and as soon as the construction worker left for lunch, she ran outside and moved her car back to "her" spot and then gloated about how the construction worker had to park somewhere else when he got back.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt that story rang a bit false.  I can't see an OB worth their salt turning someone down in that situation.

Both of the stories rang false to me, honestly.

Am I the only one wondering if she's even pregnant?
Nothing to see here.

That is very SS. I hope someone informs her that there is no assigned parking!

We've told her there's no assigned parking, but she still gets bent out of shape if someone parks in "her" spot. She was ranting to me about it one day and said "well, wouldn't you be mad if you got here and someone else had parked in your spot?" I told her "I don't have a spot. I park in the same place if I can, but they're not assigned and I can't get mad at someone for parking in that space if they want to."

I would love to have a spot close to the building easy to get in and out of marked as mine but I don't.   Unless the SS has her name painted on the spot and a sign saying Super SS co-worker parking spot only, then people can park in any normal non disabled spot that they wish.

I have several problems with this too. 

First of all, IME, people don't stand in line that way at a medical office.  You sign in and sit down.  To preserve confidentiality, patients are called to the window in turn to make their co-pays and discuss matters such as payment.

I also can't see the staff of a medical practice acting this way or an ethical OB not making an exception when the situation appears to be a near-emergency.

The OP has a Blog.  These amazing dramas make me wonder if she's trying together contributions from readers to help her pitiful condition. 

Stranger things have happened.

Reminds me of those SS pious people who can't worship in church unless they are in "their" pew. I once saw a couple come up and castigate a newcomer for daring to sit in "their" spot. Needless to say that newcomer never returned.

Oh, no. Our early morning service is very traditional, with the old guard present and they all have "their" own pew. One of the reasons I stepped down from being in our choir is the old guard and their strong dislike of anything (songs, movements, instrumentals) that wasn't done in the 1960's.

I have a mind to join that board and point out how she is fraudulently playing on people's sympathies, but I won't. She's not the first, nor the last, fraudulent mummy blogger.

I went to the site and found a contact form, which I used to notify them of the possible scam along with a link to this particular page. Whether they do anything about it is up to them, but at least they know of our discussion.

You linked this Ehell page?  Posters have done similar things in the past, and it doesn't work out so well for us here.  It brings a lot of riff raff and trolls to our forum.

He then got upset when he found out half-way through that steak isn't vegetarian.

Huh?  He thought steak was vegetarian?  :o

I was an usher in a church where the pastor's mother did this. All the ushers were instructed to let newcomers know that- with a 'poor dear' tone of voice. People just accepted that she was a bit 'off'.  But if anyone else had tried it, they would have been instructed to get there earlier next time. ;)
