    I didn't know I had this talent! I was driving to work the other day - no one was behind me, not a soul, no one was in front of me either. As I was driving, I see a car at the next street, I'm doing 35 mph - sooo they pull out in front of me! I had to slam my brakes - they couldn't wait til I passed? They was no one else on the road! :mad:

    It could have been really bad.

    Don't get me started on shoppers in the grocery store with their carts in the middle of the isle like they are the only people in the store and you have to move it for them. [​IMG] And they still didn't notice you were even there.

    It's a hidden superpower you have... it's a coincidence that I have the same powers! But let me tell you something... if YOU try to pull out in front of other people they can see you - it only works one direction so be careful! [​IMG]

    Quote:Do what I do, push them out of the way with your cart. I'm sorry. I treat everyone like
    I wanna be treated. But if I'm stupid please treat me that way.

    My other trick is to wear work clothes and have a scruffy appearance. At 6'1" and 190
    it's easy to stare people down. I find the guys who could kick my butt are not the ones
    who leave carts in the middle of the aisles. It's usually the "I'm the only person
    on Earth" people, or senior citizens(always nice to them)

    Yesterday I punched one of the self check out computers at WallMart. The manager
    didn't like it. Sir "What is your problem?" - "These machines are pieces of s**h!"
    I just went to a human. Smiled, was polite, paid for my stuff and left.
    Admittedly, it wasn't to bright because Drumstick was with me. We had a nice father
    son talk on the ride home. "Daddy did not do the right thing there....."

    Quote:I have that problem! The worst time was when I was on a highway doing 60 and a semi decided to pull out-two cars in front of me. It was bumper to bumper traffic but, I was toward the tail end-two cars behind me! We went down to 15 in nothing flat. What he couldn't see it was clear in five cars? It was a straight section of highway!

    Oh Boy!! You just reminded me of one of my not so better moments!

    In Phoenix we have what are called "snow birds" People that come to live there in the winter. A famous part of town called "Sun City"

    Now don't get me wrong. I'm not against "old people" since I'm one of them but some of them are just downright RUDE! They take over the stores and I was in Cosco one day going down an isle. A little lady was looking at something and her husband had the cart across the isle blocking the whole thing.

    I came along and he just glared at me and said "I'm NOT moving"

    I just calmly said: "Are you not moving because you are impaired in some way or are you just an A$$!!??"

    Then I turned around and went the other way. When I looked back it looked like his wife was giving him a piece of her mind! [​IMG]

    When people block the grocery isle I give them the glare, purposely bang into their cart while I get around them, and if there are no other shoppers trying to get by, I promptly block their way. If they looked exhasperated over me smiling and blocking their way, I just tell them that I didn't think they would mind since they were so good at it themselves. And as for the people that let their kids run amok and block the aisles, I just say "you should move Honey, or I might have to run you over." That usually gets the parents attention. Yeah, I can be a b!tch.

    Ride a motorcycle, you'll find you're invisible ALL the time, or so it feels like.

    I find that if you move your cart up very close to theirs and the still act like they don't see you, if you start talking to yourself and making strange little noises they tend to quickly leave the isle... sometimes they leave the store! [​IMG]
