The worst type of people are people who actually go out of their way to annoy someone just because — especially people who think they are the “authority” when in reality they are just one regular citizen who has decided to be an a-hole. And that’s exactly what one guy decided to go to an elderly couple who decided to load their groceries while parked in a fire lane.
A woman was able to film the confrontation between the annoying guy and the elderly couple. Here’s what went down according to her description on YouTube.
“As I was leaving Sam’s Club, approaching my car, I heard a confrontational voice behind me. When I turned to look I noticed a man, visibly upset, waving his arms saying something to an older gentle man about ‘Fire Lane’. The older gentle man must’ve replied, though I couldn’t hear what he said, because the angry man responded ‘I want you to push your cart to your car!!’ That was when the situation got my full attention. I watched for a few minutes as the angry man verbally harassed the older gentleman and his wife saying things like ‘You are not privileged or special!’, ‘the rules apply to you too!’, ‘you are not above the rules!’. It was then I realized the angry man was not going to leave the older couple alone.
So I started walking toward the scene with my cell phone in my hand hoping that if the angry man thought I was recording he would move on. When that wasn’t the case and he continued with his tirade, I attempted to start recording but inadvertently took a still photo instead, delaying the start of the video. After what took place in the video, I began walking back to my car. The angry man then began yelling ‘It doesn’t give him the right to break the law, it doesn’t give him the right to break the law’., in response to me thanking the older gentleman for being a Purple Heart recipient. At that point I ignored him. But then he yelled ‘Are you done?’ I replied ‘Done being nice and kind? Never.'”
Now watch the video below:
Should people park in the fire lane? No. Was there an emergency in that moment? No. I’ve seen tons of people load up their groceries there. I’ve also seen tons of people waiting for someone while parked there. It’s not a major deal unless the whole damn building is on fire.
