Surprise surprise

Posted on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 at 9:28 AM

I almost got hit by a car Saturday night in Bayers Lake while trying cross the road to get to the bus shelter. Nothing new there. No matter how much eye contact I make with drivers, how many times I look both ways before crossing the road, or how many times I yell 'please don't hit me' to drivers who are obviously not paying attention to what is in front of them, it doesn't matter. I nearly get hit once a week. Now when I say I nearly get hit I do not mean while jay walking but when I am using a crosswalk. I'm little, your big and generally moving quite fast. I am patient enough to let you go when it is your turn. Please watch out for me! I realize everyone is in a hurry to get home but you are sitting in your nice warm car and I am walking through winter because I can't afford anything more than my running shoes. I don't want to die and that's why I follow the rules of the road. You shouldn't want to kill me so why don't you all pay a little more attention. Please?

Also I hate drivers who stop to let me walk across the street and then change their minds and try and go anyways. I'm in the middle of the crosswalk! You stopped for me! Did you forget? WTF! —Just Two Feet and a Heartbeat... For Now
