I am so glad I am planning on staying in for the holiday seasons. Today, it is Turkey Day already, I don’t have to do any driving except to get BigE to work and back from work. But other than that, I need nothing more and I am boycotting Black Friday Sales 1000000%.
But that didn’t stop what happened today….I almost got in a fight and died from being shot. Ok I exaggerate but I could have.
I was driving to go get a bite to eat at Ikea and get some odds and ends I wanted for preparing a Turkey Day Feast.
As I was in the left lane, and had been for over a mile, nearing the light where I was going to turn left in a double left turn light, when the guy in the car to the right and his front door was even with my front bumper got mad that I was blocking his Prius from being able to enter the left lane as it was his right, or so he though and even let me know by laying his hand on his horn and not letting up for a good 10 to 20 seconds.
He got behind me, and being that I was in the car with WahEGGO, I decided to take the longest line so I could make sure that he got where he wanted to go faster. But that wasn’t good enough for him, as he drove by me he was flipping me off and screaming at me. Only he didn’t take the lane and let it go, he stopped just to the left of me 2 car lengths back. As we started to drive and turn he turned directly in front of me and then stopped in the middle of the turn lane with me out where I would get hit if a car came through the soon to be green light.
I checked the left lane he had vacated and found that no other car was there so I swerved around his Prius. As I passed him his hand was waggling out the window showing of his finger and I could tell he was still yelling at me.
This wasn’t good enough for him. HE got right behind me, turned on his high beams, and followed me closer than needed.
At this point I was boiling mad. I was going to stop, get out, walk over to his car and as he got out or opened his window I was wanting to jump and start pummeling him. At which point I am sure he would pull out his gun and shoot me dead (see I cold have died from being shot. )
As I realized that this would get me dead and I had WahEGGO in the car with me, I decided it was not in HIS best interest to see his mother shot to death so I took measures to loose this Prius man. So as I rolled through a couple of shopping center stop signs, and gunned it rudely past pedestrians so the Prius would get caught with people around I eluded this impending confrontation. I weaved around the parking lot and lost him. He drove off after another silver SUV that was leaving.
WahE was frightened so we stayed in the car, watched this Prius drive off and then got out and hurried into the store.
We ate a bite and played around looking at everything and finally got what we went in for and left.
All I could think was….
And so Holiday Combat Shopping begins.
I am thankful for all of you and to just be alive.
