Good Job!

Stellar job of parking at Highland Village today:

Hmmm..... this must be how they park down in Jones County.

Looks like downtown Jackson outside the sheriff's office and JPD.

No, then it would’ve been backed into the parking space.

I’ve toyed with the idea of a Twitter account or blog devoted to bad driving in Jackson. Maywood Mart always has that going on . Yesterday there were 3 wrecks between High St. and Lakeland. Noon. Sunny. Dry.

If you'll look closely, the vehicle on the left is actually over the line and the one on the right is crowding the line. For the car in the middle to park in either open space would have subjected it to dented doors and fenders. I don't blame him for parking the way he did.

Probably driven by some Northeast Jackson country club type who shops and chats all day while her husband is whatever he is at some law firm, bank or in medicine. Last Friday I was at Highland Village, waiting for a car to back out of a parking space, waiting with my signal on, and no sooner had the car cleared the space than some rich bitch drove right into the space. I gave her the one finger salute and a long push on the horn, which she saw and heard. Bet it had been a while since she got that treatment. Some years ago I was at Char and some asshole parked his Mercedes over two spots like this, so I left him a very nice message under his windshield wiper informing him, among other things, that if he did not know how to properly park a car he had no business driving one, much less a Mercedes.

Who cares?

Slow news day. Where are some drive-bys when you need them? Come on Jacktown thugs. We are depending on you.

What type of vehicle is this? Remind me what town is in Jones co?

I’ve noticed that some parking lots seem to have their lines too close...very narrow parking spaces. I should start measuring them.

I'm with 9:12 ---- Folks get worked up about the dumbest things; imagine how peaceful y'all's lives would be if you just laughed at stuff like this instead of deciding that you need to get personally offended by perceived injustice you witness.

It's a few parking spots people ---- find another spot and get on with your life; or better yet, take as many spots as you damn well please!

I'll bet this driver had a wheelchair in the back seat, and that people with fake handicap tags had Grinched all the handicap parking spots. Something like this would have been his or her only option. Perhaps we shouldn't be so quick to judge without all the facts.

“whatever he is at some law firm”

I’m sorry the country club won’t let you in, but it’s nothing personal, we just have a strict “No Insecure Rednecks” policy.

The car on the left is parking. It will eventually park correctly in the space.

8:52 pm I share your frustration with bad and discourteous drivers but not your reaction or judgment.

I'm certain that the bad and discourteous behavior you describe is equally found in all socio-economic classes. I have experience it first hand.

Exhibiting equally rude behavior in response is not likely to accomplish anything.

Shaking one's head in disbelief after blowing the horn if you must, gets some look of shame back every once and a while.

You seem to equate all "rich bitches" in expensive cars as the same. Some of us were well schooled in good manners, including the etiquette of travel, whether it's by car, plane, train or horseback.

I have some sympathy for the auto in the photo above. My cars have all suffered the careless person who throws open his car door without regard to the vehicle beside him or her, or who scratches or dings the sides of my car with carts or objects they are carrying.

Class is not defined by money alone. And, some people just are not raised to be thoughtful and considerate of others. Nor, does it seem to be fashionable to aspire to be a lady or a gentleman of character these days.

Rude, insulting, bossy, self-promoting, and showing off is " in". Money and winning the only things we admire these days. But, I think those without money err in mimicking the same behaviors as those they resent.

I'm with you 8:42 pm. I'd add that...

Life isn't fair. But, if you can control your anger and use it judiciously, think before you speak or write, understand that life isn't fair , that all people don't share your beliefs even of what is or isn't acceptable behaviors,that you don't know everything,that rules and manners usually exist for a reason that could still be applicable, and that remembering the lies you've told is harder than being truthful, life will be easier.

You are also less likely to have insomnia or indigestion if you face the above realities.

By the way, I have seen handicapped people take up two spaces when no handicapped ones are left. They are doing the drivers on either side a favor as well as they get out walkers or wheel chairs.

8:52 - the jealousy is strong with you. Did you ever take a moment to think of all the folks lined up behind you while you selfishly wait for a spot that’s maybe 100’ closer? Get over it...anyway, a few more steps wouldn’t kill any of us.

Who gives a shit what you've experienced, 10:36? You missed out on multiple promotions because your a dick. No other reason. Stop posting, please.

Best of Jackson Jambalaya.

Merry Christmas all.... especially 5:12

Well said. you have stated my views as well. Keep up the good postings, despite the view of 5:12. I feel sorry for that hate filled person.

I think your "station in life" is a direct result of your crappy attitude. You not only would you miss out on promotion opportunities, you most certainly would NOT be an employee for very long. Life isn't fair, not everyone has money-get over it and get over yourself.

21 Comments on how a car is parked....its obvious that you all have too much time on your hands.

Can't we find something fun to bitch about, like Troopers, MBN, DPS, Gaming Commission, or the State Auditor?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
