And I couldn't I was gonna go pay for a lot but you know I'd rather not right so. I'm driving around and I see somebody about to pull out of a space. So I take a quick U turn right turn around. And I put myself in normal waiting for space position. In a one car lengths behind them with my pointer right standard I'm waiting for space position and -- aren't aren't. Person pulls out -- pull up you know and start to angle back in reversed a parallel park in you know and as I look behind me. There's a guy standing in the space now is -- that happening. Wave -- -- hey anyone mistreated this boils and now I don't know it's it's down in near the near the waterfront area of Connecticut where the ICA moved to down in the waterfront broken arm arm he's wave -- -- damning him. -- -- -- -- Put down my past and I zoom in this dragnet turnaround like what's going on -- -- -- I'm saving -- for my wife she's up there. You can't save this -- -- exhibit and a -- seen this many times. It this is this is bad so what are you doing the spots where he's now literally standing in my way I'd look up and he's pointing to his wife she's like. I don't know five or six car lengths up. But actually actually Amish on the shoulder she's not in the lane she's in the parking area like in a red zone OK did you -- so she's up there are some.

In light you know I happened to all replies that's and you put your toilet their -- what we have earlier -- earlier toilet. Milk crates chairs tables whatever it takes to keep keep people please make sense to me. But in the public domain where he is trying to get us. A person's standing at -- space to bring a toilet there are reported there. You don't walk out there -- that they OK art. I'm gonna put my Twitter account. I'll keep the space that we. Don't buy it totally obnoxious right so -- -- -- the movie -- What's funny that the first text they came in the to that happens and add movie theaters all the time all the time and -- and knowing. I don't know it it's not necessarily wrong. -- -- -- It's definitely -- so here's that I so I I -- applause from arguing with the guy he's he's -- you know don't park here on -- off my wife she's up there.

Is there a protocol for how this works which is to run multiple he's frustrated guilt trip is like take a moment don't -- -- -- -- -- day out here. But anybody de -- ruining your -- any more than -- ruining my day at park until their my wife and kids. So literally while he's distracting me his wife unbeknownst to meet -- all the way back behind me and and drives into the -- -- -- first and now she's in this.
