A couple instances of special snowflakes seen at two different stores this afternoon.
First store, older supermarket, rather narrow entry way. Come through the outer door, grab a cart, go in through inner doors. Or rather I tried to go through the inner doors. Two special snowflakes right inside the door. One lady had a large cart parked across one side of the entry way. She and another woman were standing beside the cart blocking the other side of the door, talking to each other. There was no going around them.
I waited a couple of seconds for one of them to notice me, but no luck. I said "excuse me". Apprently, didn't hear me. I said "excuse me" again, a bit louder. Finally, one of them noticed me and they moved the cart over enough for me and my cart to squeeze through. I noticed them still in the same spot a few minutes later.
Parking lot of second store. Lot is pretty standard in the US. Main lane in front of store with parking aisles connecting. Each parking aisle has a stop sign, because the main lane has the right of way. I was in the main lane looking for a parking aisle with open spots. I had a large SUV driving ahead of me.
Lady in one of the side aisles drove up to the stop sign and did not stop. Did not hesitate. Did not do a rolling stop. Did not seem to see the large SUV heading her way. She kept at the same speed she had been traveling in the parking aisle and drove right across the path of the said large SUV. The SUV driver had to hit his brakes hard to avoid a collision. The aisle lady didn't even seem to register that fact since she just kept on going.
