Dear Readers, I have discovered the secret to surviving crazed drivers on the road...
Get a car.
I did not know this but I am a big @#$%ing loser and I "need to get a car."
And just as an aside, if you are a moto-fascist and you like driving through busy grocery store parking lots while on your cell phone, apparently it is a totally acceptable defense to deny everything.
Me: "Hang up your phone when you're driving! You cut me off back there!"
Moto-fascist, license plate 381-IAM: "I did not you @#$%ing loser! Get a car!"
She turned to walk away from the bike rack toward the store entrance. I had finished locking my bike so I called out to her as I also headed toward the entrance: "Just hang up your phone while you're driving. You're going to kill someone!"
She turned and stormed back at me.
"Are you following me?! Are you trying to start something?!" And she made a move to push me. I shouldered past and went about my shopping.
So Ms. 381-IAM remember: deny everything. You don't really know what you did anyway. You were more engaged in your phone conversation than in your driving. If you had even glanced in my direction you would have been blinded by my MiNewt 250 set on "death-by-strobe."
Oh, and I won't be getting a car anytime soon. Cars are for losers.
