Watch where you are going....

Did I happen to mention I hit a pedestrian the other day? UH! Yes, I was pulling out of the Publix shopping center and I looked to my right, then left and eased out when I heard THUMP, THUMP, THUMP and "GD lady watch where you are going!"
What? OMG! I didn't even SEE you I swear, are you ok? Yes, Yes, I am fine go on and put down your Gdamn Cell phone.. I pinky swear I wasn't talking on it, it was in my hand.... because AFTER I pulled out I was going to call someone, but after that fiasco, I almost wet myself, threw up and passed out, so I went back to work, without talking on the phone at all.

Seriously, what a wake up call. I was so scared, that I am very careful about talking out of necessity when in the car..

Did I mention the pedestrian was a gray haired man.. OUCH!!

I got hit by a car in the coliseum parking lot on campus! This girl was going like 5 miles an hour and she totally didn't look and her license plate hit my leg. The guy blowing leaves cussed her out for me. I do think it's a pretty easy thing to do...plus old people NEVER look where they are going!!

Oh that is NOT good! I would have been freaking out too and probably would have wet myself - no almost about it!

Well, depending on which Publix - it was probably not your fault. The one on Forest Drive is chaotic..way too many people in the parking lot. The one over by me off Highway 6 - hardly any traffic - ever.

That would have scared me too - Firefly to the rescue!!!!

OMG Beth - That is one of those things that will give you shivers every time you think about it... I would have been so scared, too. Bless your heart.

Thank goodness he wasn't hurt!! It's amazing this sort of thing doesn't happen more often. Everyone, pedestrians and drivers alike, is in a rush. I think we all need to SLOOOW down. (Myself included.)

Are you serious!!! SEKKURITY! Crazy driver! No, so I was running to the bank for work the other day...sat at a stop light for 7 minutes and the light finally changed. Did you know the pedestrian lights to walk change at the same time you can make a left or right onto another road?! Figured that out the hard way! I look up and this dude in a kacki blazer was practically laying on the hood of my truck. He looked like one of those squirrles that can't make up their mind to cross the road or run across. I got to work and sat in my truck for 13 minutes before I picked my jaw up off the floorboard! (kacki should be banned because its like camo, blends in too much!)

Pinky swear? Really, pinky swear? Because if you still pinky swear then I don't I need to just ask beth about anything. Just ask beth what? Hum. Do you like Miley Cyrus? How about the Wiggles? Also, what does talking out of necessity mean to you. I dare to wonder.

Frightening-I particualary love kids on bikes at night when I am coming home from work.

NY has a no cell phone law-but most people disregard it.

Remember we should all be defensive drivers
