So I ran out to get my new glasses. The world is so much brighter now. Not in the way of intelligence after a few of the psycho drivers I saw. Here’s the two that made me wish I could teleport, fly, or never leave the house:
- Stopped at a red light, a woman gets out of the passenger seat and goes into the back seat. Seen it before, so nothing strange there. We start going along and I see her silhouette pulling stuff out of a bag. Then she holds up something with wiggling legs, waving arms, and pigtails. A diaper change while her husband was driving. I’ve dealt with stinky and wet diapers in the car, but I would NEVER do this. Especially when we’re passing various parking lots, stores, and side streets that one could easily pull over to. One wrong move and a dirty diaper is the least of your child’s problems.
- Be careful when leaving a parking lot and having to go across a few lanes of incoming traffic to get in the direction you want to go. If you can’t see what’s coming in the lane you’re aiming for then it’s probably a good idea to either wait or find a place to do a U-Turn. It’s stupid to gun your engine, shoot across two lanes that includes cutting off a bus, and nearly slamming into the people who had the right of way and NO IDEA YOU WERE THERE! I don’t give a crap that you’re unhappy about me letting you in and now you have a bus driver honking his horn at your stupid ass. I don’t care that the guy behind me decided to let you sit longer while she went by you. All I care about is that you tried to make our cars kiss because you thought a blind sprint was the smart thing to do.
This is why I try to walk everywhere. Though in Florida this didn’t keep me safe from cars since sidewalks down there are occasionally considered parking space or a ‘secret’ lane.
