Jan. 24th, 2006

Almost got run over while at lunch today. Again.

I was crossing the street, with a green light, in a crosswalk.

The would-be assailant had a red light, and was trying to turn right. He was looking the other way to see if any cars were coming, and was meanwhile pulling through the crosswalk, with me already in front of him.

He failed to stop.

I stepped away from him.

He failed to stop.

I slammed my fist on the hood of his car.

He stopped.

I continued along my way, he rolled down his window and yelled "What are you doing hitting the hood of my car, you asshole?"

Uh.

"What're you doing almost hitting ME? You didn't even SEE me, you asshole."

"Fuck you."

And he drove off.

Why are there never cops around when you need them?

Next time, use two fists to punch a dent in his car. It'll work, trust me.

geting revenue from motorists for going over 5 mph on the highway, of course.

You know, this stuff never happens when I'm there. All we see are homeless people with a sense of humor.

I've seen something similar happen by my apartment in NYC. In NYC you cannot right turn on red anytime, so this guy wasn't even looking behind him or anything, he was trying to turn, and some lady was crossing the street with her kid in hand. They guy didn't even slow down, he slammed on his breaks. You think he'd be worried if he hit hte child or the mother, however.... all he did was start yelling and swearing at the young child and his mother. Fuckin new york
