Better watch my step, if the floor caves in, I'll go right straight to hell!

Let me set the scene for you.

I went downtown right after Admin to return my rental car. When I get to the place, there is this huge ass white van blocking the ONLY entrance into the garage, so I'm stuck behind them with the back of my car sticking out into oncoming traffic and blocking one entire lane almost. There is clearly room for the van to pull either all the way into the garage, or to pull up enough for me to get by. The side door is open and there's a lady doing something (I can't see her or what she's doing, only her feet under the door), and there's about 4 or 5 kids running around the inside of the van. This goes on for perhaps 5 minutes or so...enough time for the light behind me to change at least four or five times, and for traffic to get all messed up behind me and people to start honking. And then...

Me (to self): "G*DDAMNIT! What the F*CK is wrong with these stupid people...JESUS H. CHRIST."
Me (to self some more): Repeat above, only with more curse words and hand gestures.

People in van: Totally oblivious to the fact that they are blocking the entrance and screwing up an entire lane of downtown traffic.

Man to the rescue!

I see a man come running out of the garage and lean in the window to (presumably) tell the woman driving to move the van. The kids sit down and the other woman at the side door gets in and sits down as well. The man turns around and IT'S A PRIEST! The women in the van? NUNS! I'm sure the kids were orphans too...

Oh my god, I screamed profanities (at least the window was up) to a PRIEST and NUNS. I am so, for sure, double, triple going to hell for this.

But seriously, they don't teach these people to drive? Or have situational awareness?
