All's Fair in Parking

This weekend my friend R came to visit me from Washington, D.C. She told me a funny driving story.

Last week she was driving around the District of Columbia looking for a parking spot in frustration. After about 10 minutes, she spotted a great spot, drove over in front of it and turned on her turning signal in preparation to reverse into the spot.

Much to her irritation, another car came up from behind and took her spot!

She backed up so that she was even with the driver of the other car, and rolled down the window.

"Hey, you took my spot," she said calmly.

The driver, a middle-aged man, tried to avoid her gaze, but she was persistent. "That wasn't very nice!" she called out. "But I'll tell you what. I'll play you for it. Rock paper scissors, 2 out of 3."

The man looked at her incredulously, and then shrugged. "Ok."

They did it. She won 2 out of 3.

Acknowledging that he had lost fair and square, he backed out of the spot and drove away, muttering in frustration.
