^ I see nothing wrong with that.

I nominate the SS people who live in my complex and either aren't on the lease (no gate card) or can't remember their gate code.

Instead, they park in front of the gate, completely blocking the entrance.  ::)

One of the complex managers told them today they had to move.  >:D

There's been an increasing trend in my area of drivers sitting at a green light and not moving until just the last minute before the light turns red so that no one else can go through the light and they have to wait until the light turns green again. Maybe this isn't snowflakery, but outright jerkiness, but it seemed fitting for this thread.

Though mom did have a tale of sweet revenge on one of these charming people. She works in a convenience store and often has local cops stopping by, either as part of their patrol, or for their break. One of them told mom that one of the snowflakes pulled the above stunt on a cop. It earned the flake 5 tickets which caused his license to be suspended for at least 3 months.

We have a similar issue in my area, but it is the driver not paying attention. It generally takes a few honks to get them moving. The one guy in front of me yesterday kept leaning down into his passenger side floor area and I had to honk at him three separate times, since he payed no attention to the lights!

This is a new one. A woman being charged trying to incite a man into committing a scrabble related crime on another woman - over a house.


Kathy Rowe lost house to another couple that put in a higher bid. There may have been mistakes on the part of a realtor. So she started "pranking" them. Having their mail stopped/redirected, sending missionaries to their house, thousands of dollars of unwanted subscriptions. Then she escalated to posting violent scrabble related fantasies to adult web sites under the wife's name and inviting people to come act them out with her. Thankfully the wife wasn't attacked or harmed.

This was a plot on The Closer or Criminal minds I think (I could have the show wrong) Not the house part it was an Ex boyfriends plot, the victim was killed in the show.  I wonder if thats were she got the idea.

It's been the plot of a couple different crime shows.  The only one I can remember offhand is NCIS, but I recall thinking that had been the second time I saw that particular plot when the NCIS episode aired.

The Closer definitely did it (I don't remember for sure about NCIS and don't know about Criminal Minds).  I think it may have been an ex-boyfriend who made the original postings on craigslist, which caused a guy to come to the house.  The woman fought back and was killed accidentally by the guy.  The ex-boyfriend almost got off it, except for the fact that it turned out he'd told the guy where to find the key to the house (maybe the ex-boyfriend planted the key as well, I forget).  So his excuse that he hadn't meant the guy to actually carry it out was obviously false, as he'd planted the key so that the guy could get in.

When I started college in 1980, the upperclassmen were disgruntled because laundry service had been discontinued that year.  Up until then, you put your laundry in a school-issued bag and dropped it down a chute to the basement, where school workers collected it, washed it, and returned it to your dorm.  This was a women's university in the south.

I still have my laundry bag from there.

I nominate the parents who thought it be a good idea to bring an infant to the movies today. He couldn't have been more than maybe a year old,  possibly 18 months at the oldest . The child screamed, squealed, and cried at every loud noise... Which was a lot during Captain America.

I was on the verge of getting the manager,  but someone beat me to it. The mom was sitting in the lobby with the baby when the movie was over.  I guess whoever was with her stayed in the theater to finish the movie.

It was on NCIS as well.

I nominate the SS shopper (SSS?) at our local produce and meat shop. The side for the meat shop is a big U with two islands in the middle. Traffic can only go in one way and out the other. However, you see some of the shoppers try to cut between the shoppers going the right way and the refrigerated cases. You need a lot of room to fit between there with a shopping cart.

Also, people who make holes in the shrink wrap over vegetable and fruit trays. I know those tomatoes, mushrooms, kumquats look delicious, but you can ask an employee for a sample. We saw a shopper opening a package today by punching a hole in the wrap with her fingernail, then putting the item back. We told the manager so they can clean and rewrap the package.

ETA: fixed a typo

Dear Snowflake mom,

When you leave your 4 year old child and his younger sibling in:

- the unlocked car
- 200 feet from the store
- in a crowded parking lot
- in below-zero temperatures
- for 20 minutes while you do your grocery shopping...

Please do not be surprised that I have called the police to have them check on your children. I (sincerely, without sarcasm or anger) hope that the conversation you had with the constable helped you reconsider your decision. I saw that you clearly care very much for your kids and I hope you remain safe and well.

Some people just don't think before doing.

Same here, just because it is April doesn't mean you can leave your pet, child, or elderly relative in the car with the windows up and the air not running. It is 88 degrees today!
