Courtesy while Shopping

I went out shopping with my mother and sister yesterday. As we pulled into the parking lot, it was obviously pretty packed. Lots of busy people are rushing to grab items for Christmas baking or finding that hard to get present for their loved one. Lots of rushing and crowding. Unfortunately what else comes with it is lack of courtesy for other shoppers.

As one person was about to pull out from their parking spot, we signaled our lights to take that spot next because it was in front of the store we wanted to go to. All of a sudden, some lady in her own little world decides to signal for the same spot as well, and pulls right into the spot after the other car leaves. Then what does she do? Gets her kid out and walks, not into the store, but way further down the parking lot to some other store! Not only did she steal our spot but she also had the nerve to go somewhere else. We did manage to get another spot in front of the store, but that is besides the point. Why on earth would you steal someone else's spot and not even go to that store? Why not pick a spot closer to the store you are going to? It would make it more convenient for people who are going to that store, don't you think?

I would never do this to someone else. It just wouldn't feel right. Please for pete's sakes, show some courtesy for other people this Holiday season. You are not the only one in this world. Treat others as you would like to be treated.
