  1. One of my favorite things to do in SF is taking forever to leave a parking space. If someone pulls up behind me as I get in my car, I make those motherfuckers pay. Turn on the ignition, comb the hair, put on the sunglasses, check the glove compartment, reach in the backseat for an imaginary item, take my coat off, fix the mirrors, adjust the seat. If they roll up to ask if I’m leaving, they get ignored. One lady impatiently beeped her horn at me; I turned on my signal as if to leave… then turned it off and leaned my seat way back for a power nap. I do enjoy my petty torments.

    • Wow, that’s cruel. 😉 I know I would be super pissed. What exactly drives you to do this? And have you ever been on the other side of the situation. I am not asking to criticize; just simple curiosity.
