Well, you already know what I would have done.

I normally use some plastic rope that I tie to a few places and duct tape it to the seats.. One time, I showed up Friday and there was a man with 2 teenagers sitting in lawn chairs, right on the rope.. There is a sign right at the ticket booth that says "NO lawn chairs allowed". I politely told the father that I had those seats reserved, and he started with one cuss word after another and refused to move.. I then went to let security know about the lawn chairs and after the deputy told them the lawn chairs have to leave, the father had one of his sons take them to the car while he continued cussing me out. I said, "great example your making for your sons on how to steal something that doesn't belong to them".. The other people around ALL supported me and agreed they should not have sat where they did. We heard more cussing for the rest of the night about anything he could cuss about until they left before the last race for the night.. There are another 10-20 people that go to save seats every time there are races, so it's not only me..
About saving the parking spot, I would have went inside the store to get one of the scooters and taken it to the friends car if she couldn't walk OR did the shopping for the friend.. They were BOTH wrong!!!!

Not too long ago, I was in a convenience store buying some chips. An angelic little girl, about eight years old, was standing beside me in line with a candy bar in her hand. I told her she could stand in line ahead of me.
When her time came to check out, her family members converged from all corners of the store. I'm talking about five OTHER people. From all the stuff they had, it looked like they had done their weekly shopping at the convenience store.
I said, "Now wait a minute....I let this little girl go ahead of me, not all of you."
To which the mother replied, "You MF'er...she's my daughter, and she was in line. I'm paying for her candy bar, you GD MFi'ng bitch."
I replied, "You are being quite rude!"
Daddy, who was about 6'5" and 300 pounds, then said, to me, "GD it, woman, shut your mouth."
The cashier told them if they didn't hush she wasn't going to check them out, period. She then asked me what I wanted to do. I told her to just go ahead and check them out, which she did.
After she checked them out, the cashier told them,"And go shop somewhere else next time, please."
Heck, I was half afraid to leave the store and return to our car. But only half afraid. I don't do bullies well, and I was ready to continue it in the parking lot if need be. I might have been shot, who knows? My hubby rushed me right on out of there.
My point is this: The new "thing" at stores seems to be to appoint someone to hold a space in line. I suspect the same idea applies to parking spaces.

As soon as she put her things on the belt, her kids did the same thing and kept grabbing more and more things from the candy rack. Finally, another one came with a buggy and the cashier told them, "this line has a 20 item limit" and she refused to start ringing her up.. The woman cussed and moved to the next line.. LOL Everybody that saw what happened said "thank you" to the cashier, not for people cutting in line, but for not letting 1 customer exceed the 20 item limit when there were others in line with a few things.. ALL I had was a few things in the buggy, including a 37 pound box of kitty litter.
