Right of Way

Posted on Fri, Feb 13, 2009 at 6:29 AM

We KNOW you see us, standing at the curb, at crosswalks and intersections, staring purposefully into the street. We KNOW this because when we take that one tiny, hesitant step off the curb, you almost invariably touch your brakes. Because you don't really want to hit us. But you don't really want to stop either. So you PRETEND not to see us, in the hope that we will not take that one tiny, hesitant step that forces you to acknowledge us. "Is she going to walk out in front of my car? Maybe not. Maybe I won't have to stop. Crap. She stepped off the curb. I better stop, just in case." We're on to you. You're not fooling anyone.
