Own your mistakes, clown

To the older gentleman who decided to yell and beep at me, driving disturbingly close to me in your ill-timed attempt to turn left as I crossed the street at the Young/Robie intersection Sunday afternoon. I refuse to move through the world without publicly voicing that you are in fact the one who is lacking intelligence in this situation. I started crossing with 11 seconds on the clock. I was three-quarters of the way across when you misinterpreted when to take a left turn and decided to roll on up into my personal space.

Once you realized your error you took offense to it, but I guess you couldn't comprehend a world in which you made a mistake so you decided to honk and throw your arms up in frustration. I still had one second when this occurred and then the warning light came on which you pointed to. Let me educate you. If a pedestrian approaches a crosswalk and the hand is flashing that means you should not attempt to cross. I was already most of the way through the intersection when it appeared, which meant I still had time to cross. You, sir, were in the wrong and you can suck my proverbial dick.
