But, I called a random high school student a not so nice word.
Okay, I mouthed it.
That is totally better.
She was in her car.
Probably her moms.
It has a lovey dovey vanity plate.
Initial, initial, initial HEARTS initial, initial, initial.
Anyway, so I'm in the high school parking lot.
Oh yeah, DQ is in high school!
HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
Oh right, after 8th grade graduation, then you start as a Freshman...yada yada.
Just letting those know who aren't paying attention.
So yah, she's in high school.
I still pick her up via car in the school lot.
Walk home a half mile, NEVAH!
Maybe when she's 30.
Anyway, so the line to get out of the parking lot is chaotic about 3 days out of 5 and today was day 1.
I'm trying to inch my way into the flow line when the BMW in question keeps coming, keeps coming, and pretty much will hit me if she doesn't stop.
So being the ADULT, I stop and she inches by then has to stop right in my line of sight through the tinted windows.
She looks my way and I mouth an obscenity.
It slipped out. Sorta.
Out of anger.
Out of frustration, I've been waiting and allowing 5s and 10s of cars go by, then I see a chance and take it.
Nope, this girl has no plans to pay attention to anything around her and wants to play chicken with me.
She blatantly persisted and would have totally hit me.
I blame the heat, but you know what she deserved that little foul mouthage.
She was totally rude.
Being rude back is not the answer no, but sometimes you just react.
So she turned her head and shrugged her shoulders.
From that point on I allowed 2 pedestrians and 2 more cars go by in front of me.
I'm not proud of my reaction.
I told my daughter and her friend in the car about manners when you drive.
I hope they remember that when they get their licenses. (gasp)
Oh and not to cuss at bad drivers even if it's not out loud.
Were your buttons pushed today?
