dumb Smart car liberties

Just witnessed something that made me chuckle, thought I'd share.

As I walked through a shop car park there was what looked like a guy trying to push start a smart car. As I got nearer it became clear that there was no one in the smartie. Some plonker had taken the smart car parking tricks a bit too far and parked across the back of this chaps car so he couldn't get out. An average guy, he got so pissed off that he physically pushed the smart car out of the way, even though it had the brake on and steering locked in a right turn.

The parking attendants where laughing too hard to intervene. His wife was defiantly embarrassed.

So how come you didn't help him since you seem to have lots of time to watch who wasn't helping

Sounds like Angry-Man was shifting it just fine all by himself. He might not have taken too kindly to Cheesey interfering, making him look a bit less macho to his missus...

Yeah that's it. I was going to pick it up and put it in an empty spot but I didn't want to undermine his manliness.
