The apartment I’m in is just past a bridge going over the interstate. on either end there are exit/entrance ramps. just past those there is a fairly busy street with a 24 hour gas station, pizza place, walgreens and several fast food places. Lots of traffic and since I do not own a car I have to walk to all these places.
I’m usually pretty courteous crossing the street and wait until I get the walk sign to cross. It seems that most of the drivers here do not know what that means. At least once a day I have to jump out of the way of a car either running the red or not slowing down when turning on red. The worst are the people who have an entire lane to turn into and yet aim straight at me while I’m near a curb.
Fuck you people. I may not have a car but thats no reason to aim for me or yell at me. I’m sorry did I delay your day by 5 precious fucking seconds? Do you not like my outfit? What the fuck did I do to you? Oh yeah and a special fuck you to the asshole who ran the red light, aimed for my gf and I while we were both crossing, with the walk. The only reason she didn’t get hit is because I pushed her out of the way. And yes, these people are aiming. they adjust their path to line up with me. You know what, You’re intimidation does not work with me. Pretty soon I’m going to start picking up one of the decorative rocks in front of my building to take with me. Just as a gentle reminder to the back windows of these people that not all pedestrains are going to let you get away with being an asshole. I’m sick of your shit and I’m not taking it anymore.
Wow that felt good to get out.
