Much Better Half, Younger Daughter and her Mother-in-Law, and the kids called in at a local shopping mall this morning. They saw a car with two young black men – probably early twenties – pull into a disabled parking.
‘Are you disabled?’ MBH asked one who got out. He simply mumbled something, grabbed a trolley, and wandered inside.
On their return the car was still there. A car guard was nearby, and they told him the car was illegally parked. He said he had been told it was waiting for a disabled mother. With that the second man – whom they hadn’t noticed was still in the car – got out and began swearing at them with the ‘f’ word every few seconds. Remember, this was in front of two young children. Inevitably, he also drew the race card into his remarks. He followed them to their own car, still swearing. MBH finally told him to ‘Tula,’ (be quiet). ‘You are in the wrong, why not just admit it?’ as the extent of her contribution. She was then invited to go to a fornicating hades.
YD took a picture of the car, and an elderly gentleman came up and said he had witnessed the whole thing and left his name and number. The ladies are contemplating laying a charge of crimen injuria.
They also phoned the centre on return home, and management said they would investigate.
Is this arrogant idea that rules can be ignored becoming as prevalent everywhere as it seems to be on the roads?
