Why Am I Still Surprised?

Great start to the day with the end of the year show at
TBO. The 2s and 3s were adorable. The costumes were very creative and they did a great job with the song tunes.
The good day continued with a wonderful time with one of my adult students. We started studying women in the Torah. Today was the discussion about Rachel and Leah and the differences in the reasoning about the tears they shed. Very interesting!
We then finally went to lunch together which is something we wanted to do for quite a while, but I never seem to have time. With school basically being over, I can now do some things for me that I enjoy. Upon reaching the parking lot of The Walk in Coral Springs, all the handicapped parking was taken and my student in handicapped. A few spaces down from TooJays, I spotted a space that was pretty close, tried to back up and get into it, but it look like I would hit the car behind me, so I beeped the horn and used hand motions to try to demonstrate what I was trying to do as well as have the turn signal on. The driver would not move. I tried to back up as much as I could. When I saw I couldn’t I got out of the car, went up to the man behind me and explained that I had a handicapped woman in car… I told him that he had room to back up. He told me he would not move back, cut my wheel and go f*&# myself. Nice? I was shocked and people who know me would have been proud of how I handled it. I just walked away and moved back as much as I could, even if I would have, oops, tapped his care. If he would not have been such a creep, traffic would not have been held up. I just cannot conceive of all the ugliness in people I have witnessing and hearing about. It has gotten so much worse. I must be naive because I still expect people to be nice and considerate. Am I expecting too much?
Anyway, we had a nice lunch. Great schmoozing!
Got home and went through a great Bar Mitzvah rehearsal with a student who is up next Shabbat.
An interesting but a good day.
