A thought before bedtime

What is it that makes pedestrians so sure I'm going to stop when they walk out in front of me?  I'm not talking about when they're on a crossing or they have the green light telling them to cross – I'm a great respecter of pedestrian rights.  I'm talking about suicidal fucks who step right into traffic.  I would actually have some respect for them if they admitted they were deliberately trying to commit suicide – it's a pretty good plan.  Sadly, I'm pretty sure it's Darwinism in action I'm witnessing, not any well thought-out plan.

The real prize-winners are:

– walking into peak hour traffic.  Drivers in peak hour are either pissed off about having to go to work or worn out and desperate to get home.  Don't get in their way.

– large crowds who swarm across the road against the light simply because everyone else in the crowd is doing it.  Look up lemmings – there is only one way this is going to end up. – people who walk into traffic at night on a poorly lit street while wearing black clothes.  I call these ones "speed bumps".

Will you people please grow a fucking brain?  I really don't want to run anyone over.  I'd feel bad.  But you know what?  Eventually the bad feeling will go away.  And you'll still be dead.

  1. Texas is so big that we have to drive. We have love affairs with our cars. Some people won’t walk across the street if they can drive. Therefore, if they ever do WALK across the street, they WILL be turned into a grease spot because they’ve turned into fat, slow snails.

    Ah! This is one thing that makes ‘me’ very, very angry too. Thank you Mr. Angry!

  3. allow me to add my two pence worth. hows about when ppl walk right out infront of you, baby in pram and all, when you’re an L plater? HELLO I DONT KNOW HOW TO DRIVE, I wont miss you! Gosh, then it’d be my fault wouldn’t it!

  4. Bit slow commenting on this (weekend family time, etc.), but whether I’m walking or driving I follow one simple rule: not only do I walk and drive as if nobody can see me (pedestrians or drivers), I take it as a matter of fact that everyone else is a murderous/suicidal maniac out to kill me or fuck me up somehow. That’s what driving in Japan has taught me…

  5. Think I hit on some universal truths here🙂
