Well at least I wasn't trying to save a spot at the gas station

So if you recale my Feb 19th post about the inccident at the school program, then you will appreciate the title and the following story, if you have not read it scroll down and you get it, LOL

Man trying to save spot for wife gets run over

LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. – Authorities said a man intentionally ran over another man who was trying to save a parking spot at a gas station on Monday. The Lee County Sheriff's Office reported that the victim was standing in a spot to reserve it for his wife at the Murphy USA gas station.

The man saving the spot told deputies that he held up his hands when another man pulled up to the line, but the man drove forward and hit him in the knees.

When the victim yelled at the man to stop, authorities said the suspect pulled forward and hit the man again, causing bruising and swelling. Other witnesses backed up the victim's story.

The suspect was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery.

That is just so sad. I get so disappointed in people when I hear these stories. But the real truth is, I do believe most people are good. This is really sad though.

How sad. Was it worth hurting another person?

You have to wonder about that don't you? I have wondered how things have gotten so bad that even if your having a bad day it became okay to hurt someone else. Or in the case of what happened to me at the program, just rude and hateful. I just don't get it. Even when I am having a rotten day, I know it does not give me the excuse to hurt others. Not patting myself on the back or anything, I just don't get it. I am glad the man was not hurt any worse and as for myself, besides extreme embaresment, I lived.
