Last evening I drove into town to pick up my wife from work,I pulled into the mall parking lot stopped and began to back into a parking spot.I saw someone get out of a car on my left side,as I began to back into the spot I couldn't find that person anywhere so I stopped.I began looking from right to left in the mirrors and couldn't see anyone.All of sudden I see movement out of the corner of my left eye,there was a woman on my left side and she began bitching at me "where are you going?"Of course I yelled back "I'm backing up!"Then I noticed she was carrying a kid,so I didn't swear back at her.She had gotten out of her car and had walked behind my van,out of site and she was bitching at me.I shudder at the thought of what could have happened.

That's why I have a Backup Camera on my van.
I don't mind Coming to work,
but that 8hr wait to go home is a bitch.
No matter how little I do,
I always feel I could do less.

We require our guys at work to back into spaces when parking a company van. There's no safe way to back out of a parking spot in a van. Sometimes people who have never driven a van don't realize that fact.

This is why I park at the end of the lot. Women are like parking spaces. The good ones may be taken BUT the ones far away give you exercise and you have a lesser chance of getting dents from shopping carts or A**holes... Yeah off subject but you know what I mean.
Gone vannin' I'll call you later.
