I need to be careful when I'm out and about. These people
have found me on the street, which means it's just as easy for people that I DON'T want to find me. Such as...crazy drivers who want to kill me.
This particular morning I was feeling fine and dandy, out running errands, sans Kid. I ACTUALLY thought to myself, 'Wow, what a nice day for a pleasant drive.' Scratch that. Cut to 2 minutes later, when I'm pulling out of Starbucks.
I'm in the left turn lane, and there is a woman facing me, who I THINK is going to go straight. The light turns green. I wait. She doesn't move. At this point I'm thinking, 1)Maybe she has a red light on her side, while I have a green on mine (possible in L.A.) or 2) She is a dumbass not paying attention. Let's go for 2, shall we?
I make my left. She hightails it right behind me, honking all the way. She pulls up next to me. I look over, she's older, maybe 50's, a white lady in a nice black luxury sedan. I roll down my window and our confrontation goes a little something like this:
*wagging her finger at me, looking over her expensive shades*CrazyWoman: "You can't turn left until you wait for me to go!!"Jenn: "I DID wait for you, and you just sat there."CrazyWoman: "It doesn't matter, you are supposed to wait!!"Jenn: "For how long?? You didn't even move, what was I supposed to do??"CrazyWoman: "YOU WAIT FOR ME AS LONG AS IT TAKES!!!"
Ok freaky lady. This is L.A. If I wait for your slow ass, the people behind me will be pissed off, and rightly so, if you ask me. A big bad F*word, was all ready to come out of my mouth, but again, not wanting to continue this nonsense, I gave her the "oh-no-you-didn't" head shake and rolled up my window. My perfect morning drive was ruined. I should have thrown one of these
