Sometimes other people do bad things. Not kill people bad things, but take 20 items in the 15 items or fewer line at the store bad things, or cut you off in traffic bad things. The problem is, there's usually nothing you can do about it. What you need is a place to vent.
I can't help you with the grocery store, but I can help you with other drivers. Post your incident and the driver's license plate at Zapatag.
Will anything come of your report? Probably not, but isn't just getting it off your chest enough? Besides, it can be fun reading through others' reports.

We're sitting in a meeting and our Development Director said, "We've contracted some Type R programmers."
I had never heard this term before, so I jotted it down on my notepad, so I could inquire about it later.
Just then our Lead Engineer asks, "What is Type R?"
Our Dev Director looked stumped. "What do you mean?"
"You said 'Type R Programmers'," said the Lead Engineer.
"No, I said 'High Powered'," said the Dev Director.
"No you didn't. You said 'Type R.' See I wrote it down," I said, and showed him my notepad that said, "Type R?"
So now, everything high powered and awesome in the office is "Type R".
I am now on a crusade to get it used outside our offices. I should add it to urban dictionary or something.

It's a collection of submitted pictures at Hospital Food.
