Today I pulled up behind a car at a red light in a left turn only lane, driven by an elderly lady. Her car was too far from the line to be registered by the sensor so the light never turned green.
After the other lights turned green a couple of times I contemplated tooting my horn gently to indicate she should move up so her car was over the sensors in the road, but thought that was rude so I decided not to turn left and just go straight.
I pulled around her car and decided to be helpful and tell her that she needed to pull her car up to the line so that the sensor could register her car and then the light would change. There were no other cars around so I safely pulled up along side her. Her passenger window was already half way down.
“Hi” I said. ” The sensor …. ”
“FUCK YOU! ” the little old gray haired lady shouted from her car while giving me the finger
I rolled up the window and drove of. I would often judge people that don’t stop and help, but now it looks I will become one of those. Who knows if next time I don’t encounter a nut with a gun instead of an old nut with a fuck you!
