I hate the holidays and I hate people. The person worked at the Whole Foods that was in the shopping center. So frustrating. Why stuff like this doesn't happen in my Land Rover is beyond me.

Oh, that just sucks, but been there, done that. Once I had to put the window down, pop into neutral and push it back in order to get in. So frustrating.

You can't fix stupid!! Find a distant parking spot or when going to lots known to be inhabited by idiots use Land Rover or Uber.

Did you buy the 991.1 with the 2-tone leather at Hennessy?

Right, I figured parking at the back of the lot on the side this wouldnt be a problem, I was wrong I suppose.

Congratulations! I was at Hennessy test driving a couple of C4's with David G. the day it was traded in and made an offer on it. (Obviously, not accepted) That color combo is exactly what I was looking for, but I found a black C4 with full leather and the SportDesign fascia and duck tail a few days later that I couldn't pass up. I live in Cumming. Are you nearby?

I live over in woodstock/holly springs. I'd be onboard for getting coffee one morning down by northpoint or up in Canton though.

Yeah, sucks. And only two likely options for the truck driver: a-hole or idiot. Either way, their life is likely to suck, if not now, then soon. Try to move on.

Yup, just frustrating, the lady came out to move the truck (I went and asked the manager at the store to page the owner of the truck to move it) and her exact words were "Oh, did I not park straight?". That was it, no oh Im sorry, nothing. Oh well, could have been worse.

Pretty minor nuisance. After reading the title of the thread, I was expecting to see a crashed Porsche or at least some damage.

Lucky day.

Strange, too, because according to her ribbon bumper sticker, she loves Boxers! You'd think she'd be more respectful of one...
