I was taking a much-needed nap in the front seat of my car, parked that warm afternoon with the engine and AC on in the shade of a tree on the edge of our neighborhood park, my daughter peacefully sleeping in her car seat in the back. You bone-headedly knocked on my window and woke me up to ask, "Are you okay?" WTF! Do you think I had a heart attack while I was driving? My seat is reclined, and my car is neatly parked! I'm taking a fucking nap! I was okay (in fact great) until you woke me up, after which I, being a tired parent, was unable to fall back asleep. Thanks a fucking lot, idiot. Please mind your own business! And be glad you didn't wake my daughter up, too.

Seriously!? A woman and a small child are sleeping (or possibly unconscious? how is one to know with out checking?) with the engine running, exhaust fumes being expelled onto the children playing in the park. (see Find a Bed, Hey You! posted on the same day). 

Perhaps parking in your driveway with the windows slightly open for a breeze, (it IS November, not summer) and your engine safely in the "off" position, you wouldn't be subjected to those pesky good samaritans.

Anonymous you whiny buttwipe. Thank god we still have people who care about others. If it were up to you I can picture you walking by someone choking to death in a car and continuing texting as you go. BTW sitting in a car with the engine running and the windows up is a good way to get CO poisoning.

Hey sleepyhead, wake the fuck up. Nobody came to specifically disturb your sleep, it's called decency. Somebody thought you might not be ok and came to make sure.. you should be greatful. Not to mention you have your kid just hanging out in the back seat... you seem to have taken a stance where sleeping in your car in a parking lot with your child in the back seat is somehow RESPONSIBLE PARENTING.

Honestly, I can slightly understand your initial frustration... but only because you just woke up, but.... you had time to think this out, then had to go out of your way to get the message to ocweekly. Was there NO POINT in that time frame that you even thought through the situation once? Next time go home for your nap or plan your day better, or best option.... When somebody is merely making sure you're ok, don't go out of your way to bitch about it.... You sound like an asshole and a lazy parent.

AT LEAST you had the common sense to post this as anonymous...a step in the right direction.

Hey "ANONYMOUS", get your head outa' yer ass and smell the roses!

I'd be flattered that someone would be, in this day and age, concerned about my welfare!

Maybe next time it'll be the fuzz checking on you after your vehicle has been parked in the same location for ten days only to discover your mummified remains laid to rest behind the wheel! - No loss!

Anonymous,

You're a jerk. Period. I think it was perfectly reasonable (and damn considerate) for that person to knock on your window and ask about your welfare. It's no wonder special laws had to be put on the books to protect "Good Samaritans"...from asshats like you!
