You're Excused

Posted on Wed, Nov 9, 2011 at 2:02 PM

To the fellow pedestrian who was in such a hurry to get where he was going that he sideswiped me in the middle of a crosswalk about 30 minutes ago; hey, no worries. It's not like I was dragging home 50 pounds of groceries while walking with an obvious limp. It's not like I just about tipped over in the middle of the road and aggravated my injury. It's not like the loud and obvious crunching sound was the food I've been waiting a month and a half to buy because it's taken me that long to be able to go. And it's not like there was plenty of room to go around the OTHER SIDE of the two people you were trying so desperately to pass. Yeah, no, you're totally right, I should have dodged. But you were very generous to sort of turn around and grumble "uh, sorry." How compassionate. —Crushed Pears and a Messed Up Hip
