I didn't realize being a pedestrian was that hard!

Posted on Thu, Jan 19, 2012 at 10:51 AM

Walking to the grocery store last eve, I was nearly hit twice in crosswalks a mere 3 minutes apart! 1) waiting patiently to cross, big ol' Jeep driver sees me at last minute and stops, I proceed to cross and then notice the telltale glow in her face of a cell phone - texting away as I cross! Good thing I waited for her to stop like a good little fella. On the way home I noticed the same rig parked a few houses up a side street. Will get plate # later.

2) Started across busy well lit crosswalk (legally) when buddy came hurling around the corner and I had to throw my arms up to indicate I am impeding his progress and to please not run me over! He then points to the now flashing don't walk "red guy". I state that It was good to go when I started and had to stop so I wouldn't get hit. He then opens his window and yells that he couldn't see me and to wear lighter clothes... to which I reply that I'm not to blame for his inattentive driving and to slow down as I only trying to cross a street (again...legally). He was still hurling abuse as he drove off into the night (I also offered a few choice observations to him). I was wearing jeans and a grey jacket. Not the greatest attire for evening walking wear, but If I had seen him before I was in the middle of a 4 way street, I would have waited.

Fuck me... it's easier to drive to the store... —Sorry For the Long Rant McGee
