When you get away with everything you want, things can become exhilarating. Most often than not, you will feel an urge to do it again because you were not caught. These actions may be frowned upon, but people cannot be judged entirely because of that. There are a lot of things that you want to understand, like what were they thinking and justify their actions thinking that they are probably out of their minds. Read through this article so you can know what we mean.
Working in a construction site is a difficult task. You need to transfer materials, and there is a lot of lifting involved. Whether you have to do it with the aid of lifts or carry things manually, Then on top of that, you will have to deal with another drama because of a lady who is not willing to do what she is asked. She just would not transfer her vehicle.
A Different Project
The lady is becoming obnoxious, and she was insulting the man. The man thought of asking the police for help, but he felt that it would take more time. He tried to talk to her nicely, but it’s not helping. However, this brilliant man would also not back down quickly, and he came up with a plan that will ensure she will no longer continue to ignore his pleas.
The man will be constructing a house placed on top of a hill making his task more difficult even if he was already experienced in this field. He was a foreman and was already successful in a lot of projects. Building a house on top of the hill has its own sets of challenges.
Most Complied Quickly
One of the biggest challenges that were present was moving the materials. First, they had to walk up a 250 feet footpath. You can already imagine how much effort it takes. Second, It’s not easy to go up and down the hills, and then you still have to carry the construction materials with you. They were set with their goals, and they found their way around this ordeal.
A Mom Waiting For Her Child
What they did was request two slots for them at the bottom of the hills. A sign was placed at the foot of the mountain, saying “No Parking.” This parking was mainly for the construction project, and all the people saw this in the area. This was set up, hoping that people will not park their cars there. The sign is visible and very straight forward.
Still Wouldn’t Move
The “No Parking” zone was not respected. People would still go and park there, and what did not help them is there was a school half a block away from the no parking zones. The parents would often park their cars there while waiting for their children. This could have been forgivable, but a few people consistently used those slots and parked their vehicles there.
A Brilliant Idea
It was not a big deal for the foreman as long as they are no longer there when they are expecting deliveries. The foreman just specifically needs those slots when the delivery trucks are in the area. Where else can they park those big trucks, right? It will be an obstruction if they do not have a reserved spot waiting for the trucks. It will cause traffic jams as well.
Every time that a delivery is on its way, the foreman will request the parents to move their vehicles. After all, they are parking in a no-parking zone, so most of the time, the drivers will no longer argue and just move their cars. He was not very strict about cars parking in that zone, and he would courteously request the parents to secure another slot.
Calling The Authorities
There was one specific day when the lumber delivery truck called to advise that he was on his way to the construction site. The foreman immediately went to inspect that no other cars were parked on the spot. When he went down, the foreman spotted that the slots were not empty. He approached the cars, and he saw a woman on the driver’s seat in one of the parked vehicles.
Her Ineffectual Rage
Like what he used to do, he approached the woman and requested that she transfer the vehicle. It seemed like the woman was parked there because she was waiting for her child to be dismissed from the elementary school. He courteously informed her about the situation, and that the slots need to be vacated immediately because an incoming lumber delivery truck is on its way to the site.
No Backing Down
After the foreman’s request, the woman sarcastically and apathetically replied, “I’ll just be a few minutes, and your truck isn’t here, take a chill pill dude.” It was unexpected that the woman would answer back in such a derogatory tone, considering that she was not supposed to park there. Few moments after the woman snapped at the foreman, and the lumber delivery arrived at using the parking slot.
She Was Livid
And since the delivery truck is already there to park on the slot, the foreman thought that she would just leave the slot. She can just circle while waiting for her child. Instead, the woman became more impolite, she rolled her window shut and purposely ignored the foreman’s request. The foreman was already in a hurry, so he waved his hands at her, and the woman snapped “WHAT?” angrily.
Per Company Policy
On his previous encounters with other drivers, they would back away so the trucks can use the slot. For this woman, the foreman had to explain the company rules more firmly. After all, he said, it did not get the lady to move, the woman replied to him, “Can’t you guys just unload around me? Jesus, it’s not that hard.” This woman was not only disrespectful, but she was also dismissive.
Showing Her Anger
The foreman was surprised to hear the outcry of this lady. However, an innovative and subtly revengeful idea suddenly came into his mind. The foreman instructed the delivery truck to park parallel to the lady’s car and to park the truck to the idled car as close as possible.
A Burst Of Rage
The driver of the truck understood what he was told to do. He smiled mischievously and followed the instructions of the foreman immediately. The lady’s car was now sandwiched between a port-a-potty, which was behind her car, and another car parked beside the private parking spaces. You could imagine that the woman’s car was being boxed in by the port-a-potty, lumber truck, and another vehicle.
The woman did not notice what was happening around her. She was too busy ignoring the foreman’s wishes, and she was probably doing things inside her car to distract herself. Technically, that was what she told the foreman to do, and she asked him disrespectfully to do things around her. The lady said the solution was obstructing the road and could probably cause traffic jams, yet she didn’t care.
Failed Attempt To Escape
According to the foreman, “At this point in time, I wasn’t trying to get her in trouble, I just wanted a record of why we were blocking part of the street, so we don’t get in trouble with the city.” There’s a probability of the truck to block traffic, the foreman called the parking enforcement officers to explain the situation but had no intention to put the woman in trouble.
Lying To The Police Officer
The police officer told the foreman that he would be in the area in about 30 minutes. The police officer did not arrive on time, though. The next thing that happened was the woman’s child got dismissed from school. Only then did the woman realize her situation because she is not able to open her door. She can open her car partially and cannot get out.
The woman glared at the foreman when she realized that she was trapped. This was not the reaction he was hoping for. The foreman even thought that the woman would be regretful or apologetic, but her reaction showed otherwise. The woman did not think what she did was wrong, even at this point.
How the woman reacted was still considered funny up until this point. She was very enraged at how she ended up sandwiched between cars and could not move. However, what happened next was not something they thought of. The woman squeezed herself at the back of the passenger seat to get out of the car. Afterward, she placed her kid at the back of the car.
The foreman and the lumber delivery truck was trying to act normal when the woman walked past them. They were both fighting their laughter. The woman realized that she is just not the one who is not backing off this silent war that they were on. The woman was trapped in the current position that she was in.
Surveying The Scene
The woman said angrily, “I’m in a big hurry, you need to move your truck right now so I can go.” She realized that she could not get out of the parking spot. She was parked inside of a box. Her car was parked in the middle of a huge truck, there was a car in front of her, and behind her was a port-a-potty.
The driver of the delivery truck replied calmly to the woman, “Ma’am, to unload the lumber on the truck, we had to unstrap it, and per our company policy, I’m not allowed to move the truck with an unsecured load on it.” While telling this to the woman, the driver of the lumber truck is trying his best not to burst into laughter while talking to the woman.
The truck driver explained everything to the woman. But the woman did not seem to get what he was saying. The woman angrily shouted bad words to the driver. She kept on saying, “I have somewhere to be!” She was saying this in between yelling vulgarities. Nobody expected that this woman would act this way even while his son was seated at the back of the car.
The woman did not know that a parking enforcer was on his way to the site thirty minutes ago. The officer arrived and was already at the back of the truck and can already hear the foul words that the woman was throwing to the delivery truck driver and the foreman. The foreman was trying his best to keep his cool, and he was replying calmly while the woman was yelling.
The foreman was trying to prove a point. He smiled and said, “Can’t you just pull out around it? It’s not that hard.” The parent was still yelling and shouting vulgarities. She continued cursing and went back angrily inside her car. She still cannot open her door properly, so she had to enter from the passenger seat and squeeze herself inside the driver’s side.
The police officer wanted to make sure that his presence was already known; he walked towards the foreman and the lumber delivery truck. What the woman did next was unthinkable. She drove in reverse and stepped on the gas as hard as she could. She intended to crash the port-a-potty behind her car. That was exactly what happened; she knocked over the port-a-potty. She also did something unthinkable.
The woman climbed the curb, and she was driving on the sidewalk. The trio, the foreman, police officer, and the lumber delivery truck watched the lady, and they were not sure how they were going to react. They stood there, amazed, and did not know what to think about what this woman did. The woman was then charged because she recklessly drove over the sidewalk.
While observing what the woman was doing, the trio was still not sure what would happen next. The woman is just acting on a whim. Her car was stuck in the parking slot because of what she said, and she drove the vehicle up to the sidewalk. This lady’s bad luck is not yet done. There were more negative things coming to her plate.
While the lady was stuck in the curb, the police officer walked towards the car. The driver got out of the car, and the police officer immediately handcuffed the woman without thinking twice. The police requested her to sit down on the curb while the officer was waiting for a backup. Regardless of her current situation, this woman is not yet done with her rude acts.
The woman realizes that this is no longer a simple joke or a subtle fight between the foreman, the truck driver, and her. The woman told the police officer that she was not asked to move out of the space and that she can park on the reserved spot. The woman tried to lie her way out of the trouble that she was in.
Not Having It
The traffic police officer told her that he was already up to speed on what happened between the parked cars and also what led to the series of events afterward. The officer mentioned that he is aware that the woman did not want to leave the parking space, even if they talked to her and that the commotion happened because of her obnoxious attitude.
The foreman mentioned, “While myself and the driver are giving a report to the second officer, my guys finish moving the remainder of the lumber, and the driver finishes his statement and takes off to go back to the yard.” They have now reported the incident to the officer, and the woman’s actions will not be taken lightly.
Nothing went well for the woman after what she did. The foreman said, “By the end of the ordeal, she was arrested, charged with reckless driving, destruction of property, (the port-a-potty), and Driving on a Suspended License.” It seemed like everything that the woman did come back to her, and the consequences for her were more serious.
Her consequences were severe that she had to be put in jail. “I never expected her to heed my advice to “Just pull out around it. But I think next time she’ll probably think twice about parking in a tow-away zone if she ever gets a license again,” the foreman said. During this ordeal, her son was in the car. The woman’s mother had to pick up her son.
The moral of this story is very simple. The drivers of the vehicles should be responsible, and they should not park in non-parking areas. The school should also remind the parents not to do such things as this will also be a disgrace to their school. For sure, the school will not think twice about reminding and warning the parents.
The story was a thrill, and we felt as if the woman got what she deserved because of her inappropriate actions. We felt as if the main characters made wrong choices while the story unfolds. The foreman was the protagonist of this story, but at the back of our heads, we think if he also overreacted, which caused the woman her fate.
How the story unfolded was very entertaining. The story brought everything to the edge when we found out that the woman was driving using a suspended license, causing her car to be impounded. Nobody thought that the woman had a lot of guts to break the rules, and yet she does not have an updated license.
Her actions were so bold that people wanted to see how the story would end. She got what she deserved by being arrested by the officers. Many readers appreciated this story because they wanted to see that justice was appropriately served.
We do not know what the woman thought when she did all those actions. Her rudeness and remarks were not appreciated, and we don’t think it’s something that we want to put ourselves in. The woman probably thought that because she had her son with her, and she fought with two men, they would back down and let her be.
Believe it or not, this story is not unique. In Ohio, there was also one woman who did the same. Her attitude was similar to the woman in this story. What happened to her was an incident between a school bus and her vehicle. She did not want to stop behind.
This driver, named Shena Hardin, did not care. There was a bus that had to stop, and she did not want to stop behind the bus. She did the unthinkable and drove on top of the sidewalk. What made this situation much worse was driving on the sidewalk, and the kids were also walking on the same sidewalk.
Good thing those instances were caught on the security camera. Shena already had done this many times. No one would think that she had already driven away from this many times. But unfortunately for her, Shena was promptly taken to the police station when this was revealed.
Going To Court
Shena was taken into custody, and her court trial started. Her attitude was very nonchalant that during the trial, she showed no signs of being apologetic. She did not think much about her rebuttals, and she would even laugh at her accusations. There was a mother, Lisa Kelley, who had a lot of comments for Shena. She had a nine-year-old daughter, and her daughter rode that bus.
Lisa was very enraged by Shena’s actions. Lisa Kelley said, “She’s an idiot, just like her sign says. She did this almost every day last year. She won’t stop laughing. She’s not remorseful, she laughed at every court appearance. She’s still laughing, so she needs to be humiliated like this.” The sign that she was mentioning made us curious. We wanted to know more about this sign.
Shena Hardin’s driver’s license was suspended for 30 days as per the judge’s ruling. On top of that, she had to pay $250 fine for the court trials’ cost. The judge was very firm, and there are other things that she prepared as punishment for Shena. This punishment is very simple but will make everyone think twice about their actions.
Teaching A Lesson
What did the judge want for Shena? The punishment was very apt for what Shena did. She punished Shena by making her hold a sign. This sign read, “Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.” Shena needs to hold it on the corner where the bus stops to unload the student passengers.
The punishment was very simple. She needs to hold up the sign for one hour on Tuesday and another hour on Wednesday. Everyone in their neighborhood would be aware of what she did. The judge did not care whether the weather conditions were not good.
Shena Hardin needs to carry out the punishment. She held the sign on that corner. During cold weather, she bundles up and puffs her cigarettes. Every passerby will look at her, the cars would honk at her, and the passersby would probably talk lowly to her. Shena can not complain, and she cannot cause another commotion.
There was a man who lived in the neighborhood; he also worked nearby and saw everything. “Why do you hate kids? How else are you going to stop her from doing it again? She really didn’t show remorse for her action after being caught, so you’ve got to try something,” Bill said.
