I Said Some Hateful Things

i agree that sometimes i can let my anger get the best of me, but using someones race/religion/ or ethnic origin to demean them is pretty low. i would apologize if i were you.

Uhhh...yea, you should apologize. But not for you, for her. Why do you think she has a major attitude...it's probably because of all the hateful things she hears and reads on a daily basis. What would push you to racial slurs, name calling, and such hateful behavior? Over a PARKING SPACE?? Really?? Did children witness this? If they did you need to apologize to the kids, too. No child needs to witness that kind of hatred.

Not to sound redundant but I agree with everyone else. You definitely need to apologize. You also need to re-evaluate your definition of the word "prejudice". You say you aren't prejudiced at all, but if that were true then you wouldn't have gone there. For you to have gone there says to me that you most certainly ARE prejudiced. I honestly don't understand that line of thinking, much less speaking. I mean, just READING what YOU said to the woman makes me want to shrink. I grew up in Miami and believe me, I've been cut off, blocked, honked at and tail gated by every race and nationality you can imagine and never once have I ever (EVER) even THOUGHT to say such hurtful things to anyone.

Hell yeah, you owe her apology! I cannot believe you behaved like that and to make matters worse did it around a school. I would be deeply ashamed. And what pray tell is "her place" exactly? And how do you know that the US isn't "her own country".

I would say you absolutely owe her an apology. You took it way too far. Her behavior does not excuse the way you acted at all. To be perfectly honest, you should be really ashamed of yourself. Be a better person and apologize to her face to face.

You absolutely owe her an apology. Yes, you were right to be annoyed about her blocking you in, but you took it WAY too far. Her blocking you in was only an annoyance. You calling her those things was something that will hurt LONG afterwards.

And you might want to take a long, hard look at yourself, and ask yourself why you even allowed yourself to go there. If you said that stuff when angry, then I'm sorry, but there IS some prejudice there. Someone who is completely non-prejudiced would have never said those things, even when vexed.
