Not Wheely Paying Attention

, , , , | Friendly | January 30, 2018

(I am parked at one of the entrances of a large mall, with my hazards on, waiting for my husband to bring out a large item we have just bought. I am in no way blocking the entrance, nor am I in any way in the lane. I am scrolling through my phone, waiting for my husband to text me that he’s on his way, when I hear a car roll up and stop beside me.)

Driver: “Get off your phone or I’m calling the RCMP! You can’t use a phone behind the wheel!”

Me: “I’m not in the lane; I’m parked, with the engine off.”

Driver: “You are still on your phone behind the wheel! I’m reporting you!”

(Before I could say anything else, he pulled out HIS phone and took a picture of me before peeling out of the parking lot, narrowly avoiding an accident. I was only parked a few more minutes before my husband and I were on our way home. Guess who we saw on the side of the road, pulled over by an undercover police car?)
